What are the different shooting modes about?
The Lomo’Instant Automat has two different shooting modes depending on your shooting preferences. You can easily select your shooting mode by pressing the Shooting Mode Button.
“A” – Auto Shooting Mode
When the camera is on, it’s set to Auto Shooting Mode by default, you will get perfectly exposed photos in various situations. The Lomo’Instant Automat determines aperture and shutter speed automatically (and auto flash output if flash is on) for perfect exposures. This is the perfect mode for shooting all hours of the day and night!
“B” – Bulb Mode
When Bulb Mode is selected, the Lomo’Instant Automat will be set at B shutter at all times. The shutter will remain open for up to 30 seconds or for as long as the Shutter Release Button /Self-Portrait Mirror is pressed. If you want to expose longer than 30 seconds, you may use the multiple exposure function to expose the same film multiple times to accumulate exposure time. For multiple exposures, please see chapter below.)

As the aperture value is f/8 by default, Bulb Mode is perfect for shooting fun long exposures, night time shots and light paintings!
Auto Off Function
When the Lomo’Instant Automat hasn’t been operated for five minutes, regardless of the shooting mode, it will switch off automatically in order to save battery power. To re-activate the camera, simply press any button on the Lomo’Instant Automat.
