Some people take photography way seriously. They’re all “Look at my 12 inch lens!” and “My flash is the biggest!” and “I need four cameras with me at any given time.” Lomography understands that some of us just want to point, click and then tag some photos on Facebook. And sometimes we want to do all this with sardine cans. Right?
The company’s latest thing is the La Sardina
range. For reasons that are never explained, they thought it would be fun to make their cameras look like vintage sardine cans. They’ve released four models – Fischers Fritz, El Capitan, Sea Pride, Marathon – and each one has a unique, old world fishy design.
While the names and illustrations of each model vary, the camera specs are the same across the board. They all feature a 22mm wide angle lens, two different focus settings, a rewind dial, long exposure features and work with standard 35mm film. Granted, they’re not going to give you professional quality live photos, but take one of these to the park and everyone will want to know why you’re taking photos with a sardine can. Or just assume you’re a crazy person.
The La Sardina range retails for approximately $65.
