Picking Up The Pieces: Part 1

Something BRAND NEW and SUPER EXCITING is coming very soon! A groundbreaking mystery product that will shake you out of your senses. We are still preparing everything for the big reveal, so why don't we have a little fun while waiting? Today and in the next few days we'll be dropping hints in the 'Picking Up The Pieces' series. Now on to the first clue ...

People usually marvel at majestic skyscrapers and awesome architecture. But it’s also interesting to watch how a building takes shape – steel rods sticking out, rough edges on display, cranes and builders magically transporting bits and blocks – until everything fits perfectly like a puzzle. Have a look at some of the best construction photos we found in the site.

How’s that for the first clue?

Take a guess what it could be – post your thoughts in the comments section of this post. We’d love to hear your guesses!

If you guessed what the new product is, congratulations! But please don’t spoil the surprise for everyone else – let’s keep it a secret until launch day!

    I was going to say transparent camera so you can see the inside, but with film that would be a disaster! So instead my guess is a build-it-yourself camera kit?

    Ho wait, I think I got it. But... You say we should guess, but if we guessed we shouldn't tell. I'm lost in the space-time continuum.

    I giant camera that you can live in. The cranes are needed to construct it.However, I do not think my photolab will be able to process the 2400mm film that it would use.

    Actually that above comment seems a bit unrealistic now that I think about it. My new guess is a camera that you can take apart and reconfigure into another camera or a toaster oven.

    My first guess was an x-ray camera and film, but it would be too dangerous in the all plastic style of lomography :-P

    I would say a DIY camera also, but will this be another "Pre-order and pay now, and get your product hopefully in 3 to 4 months" thing like the Belair, Belairgon lenses, LomoChrome Purple films etc?

    Probably a medium format build-it-yourself kit similar to the recesky/gakkenflex/Superheadz last camera 35mm ones. Probably will also be more expensive than buying a ready built one.

    two predictions: one safe, a 120 camera with diy capacities diana style or... the boldest, the lomography version of the lensbaby! hence the "steel rods sticking out"

    It has to be a build-it-yourself kit, as simple as a carboard punch-out pinhole or as "fancy" as those old plastic TLR kits that Gakken used to put out.
