Large Format Camera


Lomography Lomograflok Review – By Josh Foster

The announcement of the Lomography Lomograflok some time ago was something that really grabbed my attention – being able to shoot Instax film with my 5×4 camera is just something that appeals to me! The last time I used instant film was some peel-apart and that was about four years ago when I managed to nab some FP100C on eBay. I thought it was expensive even back then, great fun but not an everyday film by any means. Looking at the prices now I just can’t justify buying any, especially with no guarantee of how well it’s been stored and its subsequent results based on that, it just feels too risky.

Chroma Snapshot mini-review – Fun with a 3D printed large format customized camera – By Oleg (Boris) Dyachenko

I love the look that the images shot with a large format camera give you. My old wooden Tachihara camera had lots of adjustments, leaky bellows and needed to be shot on a tripod only. So I wanted something which is large format but light, simpler, fixed lens and still can be shot handheld.

A quick web search returned some 3d printed 4x5s. Most of them looked ridiculous but I also found a Chroma camera website, where the large format cameras looked slick and even sported some elegant carbon fibre details.
