Lomography Belair X 6-12
« on: October 20, 2012, 01:31:58 AM »

wow Lomography actually made a camera I want to buy and try. I mean why not when you look at the price and the focal lengths it covers. I would be interested to see if I could manage to get a higher quality lens into it. Might be fun to try out.... any takers other then me lol?

then again I want an Aero-Ektar/Wista 4x5 RF and Littman Single 45 so maybe I am just crazy.

I have an Aero-Ektar 600mm 24", and a Wray 900mm 36" f6.3

The Wray is telephoto... to make it fit the fuselage of a spitfire.

You probably want an aero ektar and graflex combo since it has the focal plane shutter you need to make it work.   I have two Alpenhause cameras which are polaroid 110b conversions like the Littman and they are great fun to shoot.  I use them all the time now.  The really sad thing is the loss of the 4x5 pack film, but for now we can still buy 4x5 sheet film.

I saw that lomography 6=12 and was quite happily surprised.  Looks like something useful and fun and also very inexpensive as well.  I might pick one up myself.

Looks lovely, and 612!!!

...but sample images indicate far from sharp lenses, not easy fix... would need both lens and helical :(

         ...or any wider ideas. ???

The Lomo is a Lomo Anders. It's about photographic fun, not sharpness. Indeed, they have a special sensor that, if you utter the word "Nyquist" within earshot of them, they spontaneously explode.

Just wandering whether anybody bought into the Belair and what the experience has been so far.
