The analog classic gets a super wide-angle update

After a quarter century locking down an entire film-centric photographic subculture, Lomo is upgrading its classic Lomo LC-A camera. The analog film camera — yes, film — gets updated with a super wideangle Minigon glass 17mm lens (as opposed to the LC-A’s 32mm lens), perfect to elevate your study of lomography to the next level. Nearly a fisheye, the LC-WIDE Camera also allows you to choose between 3 different film formats: traditional 35mm full-frame, half frame (for up to 72 shots on a roll), and square (24 x 24mm). Although shutter speed tops out at 1/500 sec and the max aperture is ƒ4.5 (with top ISO settings of 1600), the minimalist camera does feature a hotshoe for flash, tripod socket, a threaded hole for a cable release and both program and manual exposure. Pick it up for $390 (£350/€350).
