Lomography has launched a special edition of its Belair X 6-12 medium format camera. Like the classic edition the new Lomography Belair X 6-12 Trailblazer enables users to take pictures in 3 different formats: regular 6x9 photos, 6x6 squares or 6x12 panoramas on 120 film. It also takes interchangeable lenses including the bundled 58mm and 90mm optics that are made of an unnamed material, possibly plastic, as well as the new 90mm and 114mm “special multi-coated Russian glass lenses” that are currently available to pre-order only. Other highlights include an aperture-priority auto-exposure system, a flash hot-shoe and a standard 1/4” tripod socket. The Lomography Belair X 6-12 Trailblazer kit is available for £289.
