The Lomo’Instant Automat Camera

In the days of digital everything, it’s pretty fun to mess around with instant cameras, don’t you think? Lomography has a new Instant Automat Camera over on Kickstarter and it packs all the punches you’d want. Auto adjustment on shutter speed, aperture, and flash output means you can take cool shots quick and easy. There’s a few creative features for a little more photo magic. Of course, seeing your images develop right before your eyes is the best part- a printed photo is sooo much better than a digital one buried in your photo stream, right? Back the project over at Kickstarter, or visit Lomography.

Two channels allow you to set your phone in either landscape or portrait mode, and you can customize the face. Might be a fun gift to give, right?
