Lomography has introduced what it says is the first instant camera featuring a glass wide-angle lens: the Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan. That lens uses a multi-coated surface to reduce glare, as well as an F4.5 aperture and three zone focusing settings: 0.3m, 0.6m and 1m to infinite. Those who pre-order will also get four color filter gels.
This is the latest version of the camera Lomography first launched on Kickstarter back in August. The Lomo’Instant Automat automatically adjusts the aperture, shutter speed and flash, and offers other high-tech features such as a lens cap that doubles as a remote shutter release and an LED film counter. The model uses Fujifilm Instax Mini film and is powered by a pair of CR2 batteries.
Lomography is currently offering the Glass Magellan model on its website for pre-order at $ 189. Deliveries to those who pre-order is estimated to start in the middle of April.
