Oh, well,…welcome to Lomography and the first regeneration of a liquid-based Victorian invention that can be paired with the brew of your choice to create unique and unprecedented visual aesthetics. With it, comes the LomoMod No.1,… a medium-format, customizable DIY camera, ready to be constructed from flat-packed sustainable cardboard. With a retail price of $59, this is the perfect creative gift for that weirdo you call your boyfriend at Christmas. (or significant other)
A Lens Like No Other
The power is yours to inspire and innovate. The reservoir of Sutton’s Liquid-Filled Lens can be filled with almost any liquid of your choice, from tea to tequila, watercolors to wine,….conjuring all kinds of weird and wonderful effects – you hold in your hands unlimited creative potential. And spectacular mistakes. Uhhh,…or failures. So goes a REAL photographer’s life. Like their Sprocket Rocket, some will just think it’s weird. But the artists among us will embrace it with a sparkle in their eye.
A New Way of Thinking about Photography
Lomography are true advocates for creativity, if anything. Inspired by the traditions of origami and Sashimono carpentry, the cardboard base of the LomoMod No.1 requires no screws or glue to assemble, making it easy for anyone to put together from scratch, and to customize. Shooting 120 film, it its ideal for both analog addicts and newcomers wanting to come to grips with the bare bones of photography.
Switch It Up
This versatile cardboard base allows you to put your stamp on your camera. Coming with a double-sided pattern, you can mix and match the camera’s shell, or go wild with craft supplies. And that’s not the only personalize aspect – the LomoMod No.1 also comes with customization aperture plates for an even greater range of effects. This is a camera you can truly make your own. Yeah, yeah, I know. Your typical “techie” photographer and pixel peeper will think this is probably one of Lomography’s dumbest ideas. And then there are the ‘artists’!
