The Lomo’Instant works with additional compatible lenses which fit easily onto the built-in lens. With the Close-up lens attachment, you can shoot great instant snaps between 10cm and 15cm away from your subject. With the Fisheye lens attachment you can shoot photos with a 170 degree circular field of view. The Portrait lens is a 35mm equivalent lens attachment which is incredibly versatile and gives great results indoors and out. It’s perfect for portraits as well as street photography and landscape shots.
With the Lomo’Instant Camera you can shoot unlimited multiple exposures. To use this function, first push the MX Switch Button button next to the word “MX” in order to activate the "MX mode". Then take your first exposure (or multiple exposures if you desire). When you’re finished shooting your exposures, push the MX Switch Button back to its original position to eject the film. In MX mode, the battery light indication in the Film Counter Window will be orange instead of green when the flash is charged and ready to shoot.
The Lomo’Instant comes with a standard cable release thread and tripod thread. Using a tripod and cable release are great for long exposure instant photos! To install your cable release, simply screw it into the Cable Release Thread below the shutter release lever. To mount the camera on a tripod, simply screw the tripod screw into the Tripod Thread at the camera bottom.
There are colored gel filters included in the Lomo’Instant package. You can insert colored gel filters in the Colored Gel Filter Slot in front of the flash to produce different color effects when you shoot.
