A Quality Character: The New Lomography Mystery Product Part 3

We have a great animal themed clue today for our new mystery product! Take a look after the jump to find out more and take your guess what it could be. All will be unveiled on April 10th!

Not only do goats have a strong unique and character, the goat is well-known in the agricultural world for its extra special eyesight. With rectangular shaped eyes, the goat has a far wider view than the human eye, so it can really appreciate the view from a mountain or if it lives in a petting farm, almost all the way around its pen! So what does our newest product have to do with the wonder of a goat’s eyesight? If you missed the previous clues we have given you, check them out, maybe they help with this mysterious guessing game!

If you’d like to meet our new character before anyone else in the world, please sign up to our special list and we will send you the news as soon as it drops

    So, we've got "quality character" which hints at better build quality vs the standard plastic lens/bodies. A mention of 1958 in Russia. And then the latest talks about goats having wide vision. So, it's going to be a super wide goat made in 1958 out of metal and will take photos using custom film that you feed into the goat camera using it's mouth. And will cost $800.

    I got nothin.

    A medium format version of the Sprocket Rocket, shooting 6x9 images. With the resulting very large negative perhaps a 58mm lens would yield the super wide angle for medium format semi pano image...and please make it with an optional 6x4.5 mask. C'mon you guys, you know you want to make that camera for us! With lug strap attachments please! :D

    How about a tilt-shift, metal, Sprocket-Rocket, 120 size, with real apertures, shutter, and rangefinder?

    well, based on mr goat there as our third clue, if I'm not mistaken, goat got that rectangular pupil with very wide angle... so, shift-y, tilt-y, or some kind of those unique lenses function maybe..?

    @herbert-4 I think they are not able to do so. @alienmeatsack think right, it will be what some value as a quality nozzle Soviet satellite. Better they started selling tanks and developers.
