As with other Diana F+ cameras it features the Diana F+ lens which creates dreamy, lo-fi photos on 120 film. It’s got two Shutter-Speeds: N for normal daytime/flash or B for long exposures indoor/nighttime. It also has two image sizes: 12 full-frame square shots 5.2 x 5.2cm or 16 smaller square images – 4.2 x 4.2cm. Get your analogue lover a fun new camera this holiday.
New to our Must-have list is the recently released Belair X 6-12 from Lomography. It’s a modern vintage throwback camera that you can’t ignore.
It comes in 3 models available for pre-order now, the Globe-trotter, the Jetsetter and the all black City Slicker. Each camera boasts auto-exposure capabilities, two inter-changeable lenses (90mm & 58mm), & bellows for easy folding.
One of the coolest things about this vintagy 120 film shooter is that it can shoot three aspect ratios— a square 6×6, a standard 6×9, and the 6-12 panorama. Other notables include zone focusing, support ISO film from 50 to 1600, a standard hot-shoe mount, and the Bulb mode and double exposure shooting modes you’d expect from Lomography.
Here a few sample images from the cameras:
The cameras are currently in short supply so order soon (globe-trotter already sold out), they’re guaranteeing delivery by December 19th for most countries.
