This one is for the pro analog photographers out there. Lomography, the name in lo-fi photography, has recently introduced the world’s first Instant Back for 4×5 cameras using Fujifilm Instax Wide film.

Called LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back, it will allow you to proof your large format shots, test different shooting settings, right there and then – because, well, it’s Instax Wide shot. No more heading back to the studio to develop to see the results.

Here’s what the LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back is about:

– Compatible with all Graflok-equipped 4×5 cameras, which is most 4×5 cameras on the market.

– The first ready-made solution to shoot Instax film on 4×5 cameras, reviving instant photography for large format after the peel-apart film line was discontinued in 2016.

– Perfect for testing large format camera setup before shooting on expensive 4×5 sheet film

– Designed to use Fujifilm Instax Wide film, the most accessible and affordable instant film on the market.

– Achieve great details and shallow depth of field synonymous with large format photography on Instax shots.
