(credit: Lomography) La Sardina Camera | US$63.94 | www.lomography.com
what do sardine can has in common with analog photography? nothing, until now. meet the newly designed 35mm camera inspired by sardine can from Lomography. it looks so much like vintage sardine can that you will be forgiven to think that it is one and no, it is not made out of real sardine can. the La Sardina camera collection embodies the usual lomography features such as multiple exposure capable, two focus settings, and screw-in cable release option.
its sea-faring (or shall i say, seafood?) inspiration aside, this 35mm camera features a 22-mm wide angle plastic lens that promise a 91-degrees of glorious view, an inverse Galileo-Type built-in viewfinder, bulb setting for night-time and long-exposure experimentation, and among the many others. there are total of four models in the La Sardina camera collection, each sporting an unique sardine can design: Marathon, Sea Pride, El Captain and Fischers Fritze. generally speaking, all four models sport the same features and functionalities, except for the latter two which sports an unique La Sardina Micro Contact catering to the Fritz the Blitz flash.
prices for the La Sardina camera starts from $63.94 for the Marathon and Sea Pride models, and $101.17 for the El Captain and Fischers Fritze models. PS: though the cameras has a sea-faring theme, they are not waterproof. just thought you should know.
