It’s a charming little 5″x8″ journal with 128 hand-lined pages interspersed with cool hand-drawn photography quotes from the masters and Lisa’s cool vintage camera paintings and line drawings.

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:
