Lomography is back with the announcement of its latest, well, back. The LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back is the world’s first Instant Back for 4×5 cameras designed for Fujifilm Instax Wide film.
Developed in collaboration with large format photography professionals as a substitute for the peel-apart Polaroid film discontinued back in 2016, the LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back works with all Graflok-equipped 4×5 cameras and uses a light-tightened film ejection unit to push out the Instax Wide film shots after capture.
Below are a few sample photos, shared by Lomography:
The device is constructed of plastic, is powered by four ‘AA’ batteries (LR6) and features an automated frame counter so you know how many shots are left. It measures in at 181mm (7.13”) tall, 120mm (4.72”) wide and 50mm (1.97”) deep, and weighs roughly 500g (1.1lbs).
Below is a guide on how to use the LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back:
The LomoGraflok is currently available to pre-order on the Lomography website for $134 (MSRP will be $149 once launched). The first units are expected to ship in April 2021.
The Panasonic DC-S5 is a full-frame mirrorless camera but in a body smaller than the Micro Four Thirds GH5. It includes updates to Panasonic’s DFD autofocus system, creative photo modes, and video features that come close to matching the more expensive S1H.
Nikon’s new entry-level mirrorless full-framer feels anything but entry-level. And it may well be the model best positioned to convert remaining F-mount holdouts to Z-mount.
The Canon EOS R6 doesn’t quite live up to the full promise of its do-everything specs, but it’s a great photographers’ camera.
The Sony a9 II didn’t make a huge splash in the industry when it launched, but it’s certainly left an impression on us. Read our full review to see why it’s got the best autofocus system we’ve ever seen.
