In an extraordinary blend of traditional Chinese art and innovative photography technology, Lomography has introduced two new editions of its popular Lomo’Instant and Lomo’Instant Automat cameras. These special editions result from a collaboration with Opbeni, a former financial industry professional turned artist, who has brought her unique vision to these cameras, transforming them into pieces of art.
Drawing from the rich cultural heritage of Jingdezhen, China’s famed porcelain capital with over a thousand years of porcelain-making history, Opbeni has skillfully hand-painted each camera with designs inspired by traditional blue and white porcelain. This artistic endeavour not only celebrates the beauty of Chinese craftsmanship but also merges it with the contemporary world of instant photography.
The Lomo’Instant Automat edition features the “Deer and Crane in Spring” pattern, symbolizing prosperity and the vibrant renewal of nature, while the Lomo’Instant showcases a nature-inspired ceramic design. Both cameras are designed not just for capturing moments but for doing so with an artistic flair that appeals to art lovers and photography enthusiasts alike.
The Lomo’Instant camera is a versatile tool for any photography enthusiast or casual snapper, offering easy capture of mini masterpieces on Fujifilm Instax Mini film. With its built-in wide-angle lens, multiple creative shooting modes, and additional lens attachments like Fisheye, Portrait, and Close-up, the possibilities for experimentation are limitless.
The Lomo’Instant Automat, on the other hand, simplifies the instant photography experience with fully automatic settings for aperture, shutter speed, and flash. It comes with a range of lens attachments for different effects, a multiple exposure mode for layered images, coloured gel flash filters and a remote control shutter release for shake-free shots.
Lomo’Instant Camera and Lenses Opbeni Edition retails at 219 SGD, and the Lomo’Instant Automat Camera and Lenses Opbeni Edition retails at 279 SGD.
