    im guessing a new lens.. some sort of zoom option?!
    or a CU micro camera

  2. stratski
    stratski ·

    Yeah, I'd say zoom lens.

  3. pulex
    pulex ·

    i know i know...its a!!!!!!!

  4. tallgrrlrocks
    tallgrrlrocks ·

    zooooom! :D

  5. squamy
    squamy ·

    Zooom? Oh my!

  6. squamy
    squamy · could be a camera attached to a slingshot that you 'ping' about, haha.

  7. roland
  8. popcoleproductions
    popcoleproductions ·

    an odd fuzzy blue creature who talks to himself?

  9. simonh82
    simonh82 ·

    It's a panoramic, sprocket hole, multi lens, zoomable, plastic, black cornered, Russian dead stock camera!

  10. willyboy
    willyboy ·

    Something seems a bit FISHY about all this...

  11. blormore
    blormore ·

    Hahaha, Grover is ridiculous!!

  12. myvitaminx
    myvitaminx ·

    can i be one of the beta tester?just asking

  13. t0m7
    t0m7 ·

    however it is, i hope it has NOTHING to do with sesame street...
    and i'd also guess it's the first lomographic zoom lens.

  14. welland
    welland ·

    I want a flag to come out of the lens when i've shot that says "BANG" on it or "you've been lomo'ed" but that may need a really big flag and the camera would be weighty so maybe we'll just stick with BANG or you could have "LOMO" either way thats fine with me. Where can I buy this? What font will the writing be in? Will the flag be red?

  15. freakoftheweek
    freakoftheweek ·

    Roland, thats lame i want someone like this:

  16. t0m7
    t0m7 ·

    *whatever, goddamnit

  17. the_detourist
    the_detourist ·

    zoom....double exposures.... hmmmmm

  18. squamy
    squamy ·

    If you need someone to take on the very daunting, boring, miserable task of testing out this lovely new lomo secret then I guess, if I had too, I could help ;)

  19. icuresick
    icuresick ·

    My guess is it's a camera which can do a multiple exposure by itself. It has a self timer, and can self-shut three or more exposures even in daylight, good for self portraits without holding it hahahaah

  20. squamy
    squamy ·

    @freakoftheweek Amazing! That would also incorporate @welland 's flag quite well.

  21. paperplanepilot
    paperplanepilot ·

    a rangefinder?

  22. thebastardchild
    thebastardchild ·

    SLR. As it rhymes with Near and Far. Very clever lomo people. A cunning clue!

  23. raph1759
    raph1759 ·

    Both back and front lens??

  24. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    it's a new cam, for sure, and it's the first Lomo cam that can zoom! ok send me one, not for test, for real :))))))

  25. marant69
    marant69 ·

    roblarosa ·

    A class to learn how to perform CPR on Muppets?

  36. santafire
    santafire ·

    sorry, grover, i don't understand XD
    my guess would be a camera that has the macro and wide angle lens adjustment and it can be loaded with both 35mm and 120 format!

  37. bemdaponte
    bemdaponte ·

    A Sesame Street Camera or Zoom Lens??? Maybe a Diana Sesame Street?

  38. bemdaponte

  42. jwhoa19
    jwhoa19 ·

  43. istionojr

  59. explorette
    explorette ·

    a two lens camera, one that does a close up shot and one that does a far away shot in the same shot, therefor near and far doubles i reckon.

    or they are doing a stereo 3d cam

  60. bear_feet
    bear_feet ·

    It's a Grover camera. With a near and far lens.

  61. homer
    homer ·

    I'm with @bear_feet although if it's not too late could you add the flag feature suggested by @welland and the slingshot by @squamy

  62. 0live
    0live ·

    Its lomographys way of saying YOURE ALL MY PUPPETS muwahahahahahah... P.s. Whatever the new product is I want it...

  63. thewretched
    thewretched ·

    hmmm... 35mm film, multiple exposure, macro and telescopic lens...

    Whatever it is, i want it.

  64. nock
    nock ·

    i don't think its a Zoom lens... because of focusing! Slr's make it easy to use zoom lens... but other types of cameras... I don't know! So I would put my money on a rangefinder brand new camera for 35mm film!

  65. lighttomysoul

  84. sthomas68
    sthomas68 ·

    Diana already has a telephoto lens so I'm guessing a new camera with a zoom feature built in or a detachable lens. Maybe an advanced point and shoot?

  85. jojo8785
