Widepan Pro II - Heavy Duty


If you’re into monsters and working out, look no further. This 2 kg monster is exactly what you need, it will eat 120, 220 and 35mm and it’s hungry. After 6 snaps your 120 film will be finished and 10 snaps with a 35mm, so be sure to have plenty of ammunition before you take it into action.

This is no automatic weapon, which means the shooter should be slightly skilled. The three shutter speeds might make the camera easier to operate but also less adaptable. The aperture which is operated on the front, along with focus, is a bit of a disadvantage, as this is what you’ll change most of the time when light changes, because of the course shutter settings. When you’ve got those settings tuned in, for Lomo’s sake, don’t forget the lens cap, it might not be as easy to forget as on the Holga, but it gives you the opportunity to be double as bitter when it happens. Is it worth it? The good look alone is worth it. It’ll make you look like a professional shooter, it’ll will literally broaden your horizon and take it to another level, it’ll make competing shooter drop their jaws, maybe even their arms, but first you’ll have to lift it

Once you’ve reached the front line no one will escape your 140 degrees view. No details will be left out, with shutter speeds at 1/250, 1/60 and half a second, aperture covering from f/3.8 to f/22, focus from 2m to infinite, coming from a 50mm Zeiss lens, it guaranties you wonderful colors and a superb contrast.

So will this be enough in an over heated frontline you ask, but this is where the multi exposure button will save you. Have no doubt this baby will save your ass and it’s up for the action day and night.
