It’s called the LomoMod No.1 and comes with a laser-cut cardboard camera body that works with 120 film (even the Potsdam 120 Kino film) and a Sutton liquid-filled lens module.
Yes, you read that right. There is such a thing as a lens with liquid inside of it and it’s up to your imagination what you fill it with.
First, you build the LomoMod camera out of the cardboard, then you add the shutter and aperture mechanisms, then you attach the lens.
The final step? Decide what to pour in the liquid-filled lens module, grab a syringe and have fun. It could be coffee, it could be tea, it could be water with watercolors in, maybe even water with glitter in it.
Then, you take pictures that have a look to them impossible to recreate through any Instagram filter.
Wonder where the idea came from?
“Created as an homage to Victorian photographer Thomas Sutton’s eccentric invention, itself inspired by the humble snowglobe, its unique liquid-based focus is a source of experimentation that marries perfectly with the world’s most impressive DIY camera,” says Lomography.
What’s even more impressive is that this kit is just €49.00.
Since it will ship in November, it could be a great gift photography enthusiasts – you can pre-order it here.
