    But... do we care for digital lovers?

    @saidseni - This is something fun and experimental - that's what we care about most :-) And please get ready to be surprised as this is a product which will be something analogue for something digital. We can't say much more yet, but get ready to be surprised!

    Sounds like the Impossible Instant Lab...

    I hope not... the thought of taking screenshots of your iPhone on film completely ruins the concept of analogue photography for me.

    Its not the digital sensor insert that a bloke came up with is it? I saw the vid on Peta pixel with it stuck in a SLR and whilst it seemed reasonably good to some extent it didnt really seem to have the features to justify the price.

    I'm not really sure about this. What could there really be new in this sector, crossing analogue and digital. We have Instagram filters, we have effect lenses for smartphone cams, there is the Impossible Instant Lab. Besides, I'm still waiting for that long-ago-promised "new " accessories for the Lubitel 166+. And what about the exchangeable lenses for the Konstruktor?

    @tomas_bates: I am surprised already.

    smh @people who feel personally victimised over the possible enjoyment of others.

    @dermanu: We are working on the first accessories for the Konstruktor for late 2013, early 2014. For the Lubitel we had the 35mm set right from the start. As with any of our cameras we think how we can improve or add things to it, but as of now, there are no new accessories for the Lubitel in the near future.

    @snoop thanks for the info, excited about the new Konstruktor accessories right away ;-)

    Some time ago I saw an enlarger that uses an iPhone as a source similar to the Impossible Instant Lab but this time using "normal" photographic paper. Maybe something like that?
    Those people complaining about the "digital" should take a step back and realise where they read this (right here, right now) and discuss. It ain't a book. I'll give you a hint... it might be something digital. Most of the users here share their images digitally. How many of us do their own prints in a darkroom? So get off your moral high horse allright.

    could be like the polaroid instagram thing?

    The Nikon Fisheye lens?

    @carsten-schmitt I agree with you entirely. Doing analog doesn't make a person any "better" than someone who does digital. They're both different ways of the same art form, with their own benefits and quirks. I for one do both, and I respect and enjoy both film and digital cameras for separate reasons. We as Lomographers shouldn't be holier-than-thou because we happen to enjoy analog. I'm sick of seeing that attitude.

    Also, I do think that Lomo's going to start selling the Impossible Instant Lab or something similar.

    I hope it's not a program to make your photos look like they're shot on LomoChrome Purple because that's already possible...

    I really hope it's not just software.

    Will it be an announcement of an actual product that will launch, or an announcement of another kickstarter for a new product?

  22. chethong

    An Instgram co-branded film scan-filter-share device perhaps? That'll irk some people though.

  23. tomas_bates

    @biblicalshower - This will be a product immediately available for purchase. Not a Kickstarter or pre-order.

    I don't think it's the right place, but @alix-mansell mentioned a Lomo app.
    I'd enjoy a lomography app on my smartphone, to look at pictures, articles, notifications, etc. when I'm in the train for instance. A kind a adapted to be used on a smartphone.

    Diana Digital. with no review screen and no menu's just a power switch and a shutter

    An instant "analog" printer for Instagrams?

    petzval lens?

    Sound like a lomography application for smart phones?

    It's probably another lomo lens like my Holga for Canon DSLR or my Diana lens set for my Canon DSLR. What more Lo-Fi effects could we handle? I liked photography before Photoshop--just camera, film and a darkroom for creative exploration. These days any nimrod with a smartphone or photoshop can create all kinds of effects. Kind of taking the fun out of it.

    I think that getting to work a regular digital camera as a lomo camera is much more interesting.

    Nope, I was right. Lomo lenses.
