If you pre-ordered the Belair on the release date or next day or so I bet it's either arrived or you've got notification the Belair is ready to be shipped! You have not got any email yet? Please be patient as we will definitely contact you once it is on the way! Meanwhile, let's take a look how kikuzumi, one of Lomography's community members from Japan, enjoys his first Belair in Japan and his shots taken with it!
kikuzumi loves panoramic photos! You can tell from his LomoHome. Since he enjoys panorama shots, the Belair’s 6×12 format is like a heaven to kikuzumi. Now for his personal user review about the Belair:
Man, I love the bellows on the Belair! As soon as I unlocked the bellows and saw it I just went “yahoo!” Even though it’s a medium format camera, it’s pretty light, and you can shoot photos very easily.
Nice design, obviously! My female friends like my Belair (they say it is so cute!) I usually don’t get that kind of compliment about my other medium format cameras…
I like the LC-A+ and Horizon, so I often use these two cameras to shoot Lomographs with. However, the Belair is an even better fit! When I use the Belair, I feel like I am using both the LC-A+ and the Horizon! Simply put, I can choose between the 6×6 or 6×12 formats with one camera body. I think anyone can enjoy the Belair very much!
Thank you so much, kikuzumi for sharing your first impressions with your Belair in Japan!
Right now, we are taking pre-orders on the Belair X 6-12 which will be delivered by January, 2013! Please make the order by here
