Lomography launches LomoMod No.1 DIY cardboard camera with a liquid-filled lens

22 Oct

Lomography has introduced LomoMod No.1, a DIY medium-format camera constructed from cardboard, as well as a new lens with a shutter and aperture unit. The lens can be filled with liquid from a syringe, according to Lomography, in order to produce ‘unique artistic aesthetics’ using tea, coffee, and more.

Much in the same way as Google’s cardboard virtual reality headset, Lomography’s new LomoMod No.1 ships as flat-packed sustainable cardboard that the customer assembles at home. This process appears fairly straightforward, as the construction doesn’t require glue or screws to put together. In addition to being moddable, the cardboard camera is also doubled-sided to offer matte black and UV pattern options.

Below is a gallery of sample images taken with the camera:

Beyond the cardboard camera body, the LomoMod No.1 features a unique lens that replaces traditional filters with an injectable design. The companion shutter and aperture module feature both normal and bulb modes with support for long exposures. The unit features customizable aperture plates, as well, for creating ‘unique’ bokeh. Rounding out the design is a tripod mount and PC-sync and cable release socket.

The full kit ships with:

  • 11 Sheets of Cardboard Cutouts
  • 1 Sheet Aperture Plates Set
  • Sutton Lens Module
  • Aperture and Shutter Module
  • 120 Film Spool
  • Tripod Nut
  • Tube
  • Syringe
  • Valve
  • Colorful Stickers
  • Photo Book & User Manual

The Lomography LomoMod No.1 is available to pre-order for $ 59 USD. Units have already started shipping in Hong Kong but won’t start shipping in Japan, the United States or Europe until early next month.
