Lomography's New Limited Edition Camera!

2011-04-01 71

We’re proud to introduce a new camera that our designers and engineers painstakingly created. You’re in for a big surprise after the jump!

You know what it’s like, you go on a trip and take three cameras with you, by the time you have got the camera you need the shot’s gone. Then you have to take three rolls of film to be developed… well not any more. The Phrankenstein incorporates all our Lomographic favorites in one beast. It’s unique front disc rotates allowing you to select which lens you want to use, so in one shoot you can have the dreamy quality of the Diana then the range of a Fisheye and of course the tradition of the LOMO LC-A. And, if thats not enough, flip the top of the Phrankenstein up and there is an inbuilt diana flash just to give you that extra punch.

This unique camera has only been made in very small quantities and is only available through the Lomography Online Shop. Get yours quickly because they will sell out three times as fast!

    It's my dream ! I just ordered one. But $20000 was a bit expensive.

  58. camera_j
    camera_j ·

    this is obviously an april fools joke. any photographer would well know that the lens to film distance for all three cameras is different and on this camera they're all at the same length. so while it looks nice it's not possible.

    LOL! I was actually looking for it on the shop!! DUH! :P

  65. herbert-4
    herbert-4 ·

    May I suggest designing a 120 cam, thick STABLE plastic body, foam light seals, 6x6 format, simple BRIGHT CONTRASTY zorki 4 type rangefinder, Lubi type lens f/4.5 f=65mm, LC-A type shutter/light meter set, simple knob/red window advance, power by 2 AAA batteries. Bring it in for US$ <400. NOT April Fool's, and the fine art world will love you.

  66. herbert-4
    herbert-4 ·

    Oh, add aperture priority and a B setting to shutter set like Yashica Electro.
