Using Fujifilm Instax Mini Film, the new Lomography Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan is the first wide-angle instant camera. Equipped with a 21mm-equivalent lens (actual focal length is 38mm) with a maximum aperture of f/4.5, “the Lomo’Instant Automat Glass has everything you need to capture the world in crystal-clear, razor-sharp definition.”

Taking a look at the specs for the new Lomo instant camera, we find that it has a shutter speed range of 8 seconds to 1/250s in its automatic shooting mode, but the shutter can be held open for 30 seconds in bulb mode. There is +/- 1 EV of exposure compensation available and there’s a built-in flash with a guide number of 9 meters. The camera uses zone focusing and has a minimum focusing distance of 0.98 feet (0.3 meters).


The camera includes a special lens cap as well. The cap doubles as a remote shutter, close-up attachment, colored gel filters and more. The remote works from up to five meters away. You can get the camera and its multi-talented lens cap for just under US$190. The camera is expected to deliver to customers in mid-April. You can order one for yourself here.
