Lomo’Instant Automat Camera Combines Retro and Modern Tech

 |  |  |  |  September 16, 2016

Today, digital cameras rule, but many people still enjoy the look and tactile feel of Polaroids. Lomography’s Lomo’Instant Automat Camera aims to revive instant photography for modern users. Think of it as a smart instant camera.


It uses reasonably priced Fujifilm Instax Mini film, combined with contemporary tech to make the experience more pleasant than it’s ever been. It can automatically adjust shutter speed, aperture, and flash output all on its own, using input from an integrated sensor to determine the perfect parameters for a shot.

Basically, it takes care of all the technical details for you, so all you have to do is aim and shoot. It’s simple and also rewarding as the film comes out. For those who want to play with their images, there are long exposure and unlimited multiple exposure modes, as well as an array of available color gel filters, and telephoto, fisheye, and wide-angle lens options.


A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the Lomography Lomo’Instant Automat. It’s already completely blown through its fundraising goal. If you want one for yourself, pledges to reserve a unit starts at $112(USD).
