Coming Soon: Analogue Vibes for Digital Lovers - Part 3

2013-10-12 19

When that special moment arrives, we would of course want to capture it, take a photo as a remembrance, and treasure that memory forever.

But what if you have say, two very special moments that happened in two different places, and you want to bring them together? So for our third clue on the new product we’re cooking up for you, this fantastic item will let you merge two worlds into one, and oh so easily.

We all love multiple exposures. The MX technique is a creative and artistic way of shooting absolutely unique photos. So take a wild guess. What far-out invention would let digital lovers blend two separate images together?

Shout out your forecast in the comments section below.

    "What far-out invention would let digital lovers blend two separate images together?" An image editor. :p

    But an image editor is not really "one-of-a-kind", as it says in the first clue.

    i do hope this is analog, can you develop slide film? lomochrome is nice but raping my bank account isnt cool

    Some kind of app that works with the lomo film scanner for merging single exposures into double exposures?... I really hope not lol...

    or maybe something similar to the impossible instant lab but for 35mm that allows for double exposures?... I still wouldn't be into it...

    or even worse... a digital toy camera that you are able to double expose on.

    i would agree with the first point @jourdanlynch ....with this latest mx sure looks like a lomo app....and yes...I also really hope not..!!..:)...

    Another digital closest to analogue would be a Foveon sensor back for Lubitel 166+. Also, much too expensive!!

    @jimjimm Yeah, I also think that's the most likely one... I really hope it isn't, the smart phone scanner etc I can deal with but... I don't know... same with the Impossible lab... to me it just sort of cheapens the experience of shooting analogue.

    *sigh*, a Lomo App?! There are so many mobile image editing applications already...

    @jourdanlynch The app that was supposed to be used with the Smartphone Scanner still doesn't work and/or has been described as rubbish. I don't think another app should be on their mind right now. Even if it is an app, it's not exactly a "far-out invention" unless we're really pushing for hype here.

    @biblicalshower Soooo... if not a app, do you think maybe something inspired by the impossible instant lab?.
    This one is pretty cryptic...
    I also feel that if it was a app they wouldn't make it seem like a completely new (physical) product... it would be sort of silly to big it up to just drop a app on us lol.

    @jourdanlynch I'm not really saying it *won't* be an app or involve an app of some sort, just saying that I don't think they should be doing another app if the first one they did still isn't of a good usable quality.

    I just looked at the 4th clue article, and it definitely sounds like some kind of photo app to me. "Our exciting new product will let you do just that. It will let you see the world differently and transform ordinary scenes into knock out visions, giving you an amazing view of practically anything in sight. "

    Also with the second clue all about colour I'm starting to think it might be something like the Holga Turret case you can get for galaxy phones and iPhones, with changeable photo filters for colour, split image, fisheye, etc. also with a companion app for doubles.

    um wouldnt the mx switch be enough? theres no need for digital to help.......

    Vignette for Android shoots awesome digital double exposures. Image Blender for iphone will combine multiple shots into one image, but the results aren't as good as Vignette. Too bad Vignette is only for Androids.

    @biblicalshower Yeah, I just checked out the 4th and 5th today... I am convinced it is a app of some kind... whatever it is it doesn't sound like my cup of tea... there is hundreds, maybe even thousands of iPhone apps for replicating analogue photography...
    I just hope to god that this isn't the start of thousands upon thousands of digital faux-film uploads...
    I appreciate digital photography but I come here to escape Flickr and the instagram generation lol.
