26 & 28 April 2011
After arriving on a sunshiny day, the followings days in Rio were just cloudy with no sight of the majestic sun. While there were not many people in the beach as compared to days when one can get a nice tan, still the beaches of Rio are charming and inviting. On two mornings before meeting up with the team at the hotel lobby, I went out to take square pictures of cloudy Copacabana armed with my Lubitel 166U plus flash. Rio's beautiful even on sun-less days!

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures.

The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats.
