The Lomo’Instant Automat Glass is the world’s first instant camera to feature a wide-angle glass lens. It is equipped with a 38mm lens (which is equivalent to 21mm in 35mm terms), and features 6 elements in 4 groups, with a multi-coated front element. The maximum aperture is f/4.5, and there’s a minimum focusing distance of 0.3 metres. The Lomo’Instant Automat Glass camera is fully automated, hence its name, but there are some elements which you can adjust yourself. For the first iteration of the camera, Lomo has produced a “Megellan” edition. Like other cameras of its kind, the Lomo Automat Glass works with Instax Mini film. This is widely available in various outlets, and produces a credit card sized print. The Lomo’Instant Automat Glass costs £169/$215.
Ease of Use
A camera like this is not for those who like to be demure with their camera choices. Although it’s not the most unusual looking Lomo camera on the market, it’s also quite far removed from most average cameras. The Lomo’Instant Automat Glass is far too large to fit in a pocket, with a square design that has been built to accommodate the Instax Mini film at the back.
