You can put it on your wall, share it with a friend or slip it in your pocket to always keep the precious memory with you.

It's this passion for instant photography that spurred us on to design the ultimate instant camera. A camera that combines our passion for instant analogue photography with our technical experience. Most importantly, we wanted to create a fun camera packed with awesome features and endless opportunities to experiment! Say hello to the Lomo’Instant!

Go Wild With Innovative Instant Features

3 Shooting Modes to Cover Every Kind of Instant

The Lomo’Instant has an auto flash shooting mode so you can easily shoot fantastic instant photos with flash in the touch of a button. You can also switch to the 2 creative shooting modes to open up all kinds of experimental shooting possibilities.

  • Flash On Auto Mode: With this mode you can easily get amazing instant photos on the go. A sensor on the flash detects the brightness and the light meter automatically gives off the right amount of flash. The default aperture value is f/16 and the exposure compensation dial can be adjusted in this mode.
  • Creative Mode (Flash On): This mode is great for shooting indoors. The flash is on and you can switch between N for normal daytime shots and B shutter for long exposures.
  • Creative Mode (Flash Off): This mode is great for long exposures at night. The flash is switched off and you can switch between N for normal daytime shots and B shutter for long exposures at night.

An Ultra-Advanced Lens System

Shoot tons of unique instant photos and push the limits of your imagination with the Lomo’Instant Lens System! The camera has a built-in Wide Angle lens. Additionally, Fisheye, Portrait and Close-Up lens attachments are available.

  • Wide Angle Lens (built-in): This 27mm equivalent wide angle lens captures more than your eyes can see and allows you to shoot uber-cool up-close-and-personal shots with the 0.4m closest focusing distance. It’s perfectly suited to spontaneous instant shooting and we love using it for selfies!
  • Close-Up Lens Attachment (Included in the Camera plus Lens Packages): With this lens, you can shoot ridiculously cool instant snaps at a focusing distance of 10cm-15cm; it works using a fixed aperture of f/16. The lens clips on to the wide-angle lens which comes attached to the Lomo’Instant (unfortunately it is not compatible with the other attachable lenses).
  • Fisheye Lens Attachment (Included in the Camera plus Lens Packages): Get hooked, lined and shamelessly sinkered for wonderful circular instants with the 170° Fisheye Lens Attachment.
  • Portrait Lens Attachment (Included in the Camera plus Lens Packages): This 35mm equivalent lens attachment is incredibly versatile and gives great results indoors and out. It’s great for portraits as well as street photography and landscape shots.

Sh-o-o-o-o-t L-o-o-o-o-o-ng Exposures

The N setting on your camera is perfect for daytime shots and night shots with a flash. But the Lomo’Instant also has a B setting so you can create light-streaked photos by holding the shutter open for as long as you like. Give it a go for low-light or night-time shooting and creating breathtaking light paintings.

Shoot Crazy Unlimited Multiple Exposures

The Lomo’Instant is the only modern Instant camera which allows you to shoot unlimited multiple exposure instants. This means you can combine numerous shots on one frame for show-stopping effects!

Color Gels

Take full control of your instants in a flash with the selection of color gels that come with the Lomo’Instant. By adding the filters over your flash, you can play around with cool and warm tones, and give an artistic flair to your instants!

The Perfect Instant Photo Format

The camera works with the high quality and widely available Fujifilm Instax Mini film, renowned for its bright colors and clear images. Your photos will be credit card sized snapshots which can fit in any wallet and look great on any wall! Of course, Fujifilm Instax Mini Film is stocked in the Lomography Online Shop and Lomography Gallery Stores.

The Largest Aperture Setting in the Instant Photography World

With its maximum aperture of f/8, the Lomo’Instant Camera has the largest aperture setting currently in the instant photography world. Shooting with f/8, you can get brighter shots. Or you can use a smaller aperture such as f/22 for getting every detail in focus – Smaller apertures are perfect for landscape shots with lots of detail.

  • What exactly is the Exposure Compensation feature of the Lomo’Instant?
    In “Flash On Auto Mode”, the Lomo’Instant flash is always on, the shutter speed is fixed at 1/125 and the aperture defaults to f/16. Since the flash fires at exactly the correct strength, the auto mode ensures that you always get the perfect exposure. However, if you would like a brighter or darker image, this is also possible. To get a brighter image, change your aperture to f/8 or f/11. To get a darker image, change your aperture to f/22 or f/32. This is equivalent to having +2/-2 exposure values. In the creative shooting modes, it is also possible to adjust your aperture in this way.
