Lomography Press Release
A PIONEERING LOMOGRAPHIC HIGH FLYER:
THE BELAIR X 6-12
AWE-INSPIRING SHARPNESS AND QUALITY
Lomography has developed an entirely new daring and pioneering 6x12 film camera. The Belair X 6-12 brings a new amazing level of lens quality together with a host of exciting new developments. This stylish camera combines all the stunning features of a panoramic medium format camera without being excessive in size. It offers never-before-seen sharpness, depth of field and ultra-wide photos.
MAXIMUM MEDIUM FORMAT FLEXIBILITY
The Belair X 6-12 is built with flexibility and experimentation at heart. Not only can you take advantage of the auto-exposure feature (which has never been seen before on a 6 x 12 panoramic medium-format camera), you can also take pictures in 3 different formats: regular 6 x 9 photos, 6 x 6 squares or 6 x 12 panoramas. This versatile camera has an interchangeable lens system, allowing you to attach either a 90mm standard lens or a 58mm wide-angle lens; both lenses bring high quality photos while still being loaded with the Lomographic charm we all know and love.
