Combining high quality craftsmanship with versatile features, the Lomo’Instant Wide is the instant camera for any and every person who revels in capturing every beautiful, bizarre and bewildering moment in a creative, super wide, crisply sharp and perfectly exposed way.
BIGGER IS BETTER
Conjuring the spirit of shooting large film format Polaroids of yesteryear, the Lomo’Instant Wide uses Fujifilm Instax Wide film, which is twice as wide as Fujifilm Instax Mini film and just as easy to share and show off. So whether you’re at a pool party in the hills of Hollywood or sipping tea on the sofa while your dog does backflips, you can squeeze more magic into every instant shot you take and capture twice as much with this incredibly wide instant film.
FULLY AUTOMATIC & CREATIVE MODES
The Lomo’Instant Wide has three different creative shooting modes for all of your shooting desires in every situation you might find yourself in, from an intimate house concert in the East Village to Sunday brunch with friends. Explore and get to know each one — Auto mode for a fully automatic experience (both exposure and flash) that’s perfect for carefree days and perfectly exposed shots every time, Bulb mode for incredible long exposure shots and light painting and Fixed Shutter Speed mode for studio settings.
The Lomo’Instant Wide is packed with creative and experimental features that set it apart from any other instant camera, past or present.
Shutter Remote Control Lens Cap
The lens cap of the Lomo’Instant Wide does way more than just protect the built in 90mm lens from dust and scratches — it doubles as a shutter remote control that allows easy and convenient self-portraits, group photos and long exposures!
Fully Automatic Shutter & Flash
One of the many features that set the Lomo’Instant Wide apart from all of the others is its fully automatic shutter, which automatically determines much light is necessary for perfect exposure — a totally hassle-free instant experience! Add to that three Lens Attachments (Wide-Angle, Close-Up and Splitzer), flash on/off control in any mode, unlimited long and multiple exposures, interchangeable color gel filters, exposure compensation — an incredible array of awesome features that take instant photography to a whole new level!
The Lomo’Instant Wide is being produced in small batches, one edition at a time, which means pre-orders will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. And for anyone who pre-orders, we will be throwing in a couple of fantastic freebies — a Lomo’Instant Wide Strap and a pack of 4 color gels! Delivery for the first batch is estimated to begin early December 2015, starting with Black and White Editions.
