Lomo'instant Wide is the latest instant camera product from Lomography that provides digital port. Its the first Lomography camera to use Fuji Instax Wide instant film, which has wider shot area as much as twice of Fuji Instax Mini.

According to Mashable, Lomo'Instant Wide instant camera has features that enhance instant photos in more fun and meaningful ways. It offers a great instant photo camera experience to deliver vintage photos for those who more interested in photography.

The Lomo'Instant Wide is basically a larger version of the Lomo'Instant design that was launched last year. Initially launched in October, Lomo'Instant Wide has boxy design with squared corners. It can be loaded with a pack of 10 shots Instax Wide at a time. The camera has a shot counter on the backside that shows how many shots left before the users need to switch a new pack.

The camera offers three creative shooting modes including Auto for a fully automatic experience, Bulb for long-exposure and light-painting, and Fixed Shutter Speed for shooting in studio settings. It offers two aperture settings inclluding f/8 and f/22 and 90mm lens.

Lomo'Instant Wide has a high-tech lens cap that functions as a remote shutter as well, according toTechTimes. The cap has a button to deliver a remote shutter and wireless communication with the camera. The users can press the button on the lens cap to take the shot. The lens also offers wide angle, splitzer, and close up features.

The users can twist the ring around the lens to adjust the focal distance. The camera offers three focal distance including 2 feet for great portraits and selfies, 3-6 feet that is good for wide shots, and infinity setting for landscapes and buildings' photo taking.

Other feature includes a flash that can be toggled on and off, an exposure compensation switch for making photos brighter or darker, and gel filters that are available in four colors (yellow, red, blue, and violet) to be slipped over the flash to obtain filtered photos. The camera also supports PC sync.

Lomo'Instant Wide also have a viewfinder guideline. Most instant cameras have inaccurate framing through the viewfinder. What the users see through the optical viewfinder is not what they get on the printed photos. Lomo'Instant has a dotted rectangular box inside of the viewfinder which marks off where all of your subjects should be inside of, so the users will get a better photo framing.

The camera is available for pre-order now for $199. It comes in all-black colored, minimal all-white finish, green and blue "Portabello Road" and vintage brown "Central Park. According to Stuff, each edition of the camera coming separately and in limited quantities and will be sold on first-some first-served basis. The first batch will arrive in December 2015.
