The LomoApparat 21 mm is fitted with a 21mm wide angle lens, built-in flash and colored gel filter slider. It also features a 0.2 m close-up lens attachment and in classic Lomography style there are also a Kaleidoscope and a Splitzer lens available in order to take your photography to new experimental hights.

The features

You can shoot as close as 0.5 m and with the close-up lens attached as close as 0.2 m. There is an MX switch for multiple exposures and Bulb shooting mode for long exposures. The kaleidoscope lens and the Splitzer lens for experiments. The flash filter slider lets you use different color filters for even more effects.

The camera was tested by Aislinn Chuahiock:

This is a FUN & CAPABLE BASIC CAMERA that’s better built and has a more flexible creative functionality than its contemporaries. I truly believe Lomography put a lot of thought into designing the LomoApparat and its usability.
