Lomography Introduces Belair X 6-12 Panoramic Medium Format camera

By fotosiamo on October 19th 2012

Wow, I have to say I wasn’t expecting for Lomography to come out with a medium format film camera, but here it is. Introducing the Lomography Belair X 6-12 Panoramic Medium Format Camera. Not only does this camera take 120mm film rolls, but it is also an interchangeable lens camera. There are two lenses included with the camera at the time of the introduction: The 90mm f/8 prime and the 58mm f/8 ultrawide prime. You also have the option of a panoramic 6×12 film format, a 35mm-like 6×9 film format, or a square 6×6 film format.

The collapsible bellows design allow the Belair to be relatively compact when not in use. Focusing is done in the lens and not with the bellows.
