Lomo Instant Wide Modification

I have been working on this Lomo’ Instant Wide – Magician edition for awhile and just released officially today in Lomography magazine. If you are interested to get one, please feel free to leave a message in this blog. 🙂

It provides an answer to something that people keep asking about. Is it possible to modify a Lomo’ Instant Wide? How to enhance the picture quality of the Lomography camera? It uses again a vintage lens that enhances the photo quality to our golden film era. It also brings a lot of fun and excitement to the instant photography. It frees the photographer from the prison of the automatic shooting mode. It enables him to decide what’s the optimised settings to shoot under particular situation, and every situation can be different. It puts the control back to the photographer.

I truly feel that after we got a taste of the convenience from modern technology, like in digital photography, online shopping, meal delivery, video on demand, instant messaging, we will reach a point that we start to treasure the “real life experience” that we have before these technological advancement.

We will turn to treasure the face to face interaction and conversation with our friends, the joy of walking into your favourite shops, the dining experience in the local restaurants. The joy of film photography is no different. The process of composing a picture, determining exposures, and the intense moment of trigger the shutter all makes the photo talking more memorable.
This is the camera designed for human. Feel free to take a look of the Lomography interview and the video demonstrations.
