Lomography has been busy designing an instant back for 4×5 cameras that will use Instax Wide film, unlocking the door to instant film in large format once again! It is going to be compatible with Graflok equipped cameras (which is most out there).
For quite some time peel-apart film hasn’t been made, and what stocks of it are left have risen to astronomical prices. Lomo has pulled it out of the bag here in making instant film more accessible, easier & economical! Lomography says “It’s the perfect addition to the large format toolkit” and I couldn’t agree more.
Whether its for experimentation before you take that critical shot or being able to use the wide range of lenses and movements large format cameras can provide, either way instax film will bring something interesting and fun to the format
Whilst I have a great deal of respect for DIY photographers who have already achieved similar results by ‘hacking’ their own ways to shoot instax film with LF cameras, I’ve always been nervous to try that sort of thing myself believing I’d mess it up. The Lomography Lomograflok solves those issues at a price that I think is really reasonable.
I’m very excited to get my hands on it! A world of possibilities has reopened and I can’t wait to see what the community create with it.
