So far, four more color flash gels and a camera strap for each instant camera backer have been added as stretch goals. And now Lomography has announced that if the project reaches $1,000,000, there will also be a Lomo’Instant Close-Up Lens given for free to all camera backers. The macro converter, which allows a 10-15cm closest focusing distance, can be attached to the Lomo’Instant Camera’s built-in wide-angle lens.
