    I want a flag to come out of the lens when i've shot that says "BANG" on it or "you've been lomo'ed" but that may need a really big flag and the camera would be weighty so maybe we'll just stick with BANG or you could have "LOMO" either way thats fine with me. Where can I buy this? What font will the writing be in? Will the flag be red?

    My guess is it's a camera which can do a multiple exposure by itself. It has a self timer, and can self-shut three or more exposures even in daylight, good for self portraits without holding it hahahaah
