No need for long explanations at your local lab, the processing is really easy due to the regular format of the shots. As different as these four models may be, they all have one thing in common – a crazy wide-angle plastic lens and the best lens ring of all time.
El Capitán and Fisher’s Fritze are also equipped with Fritz the Blitz, Lomography’s newest and most powerful flash. Not only is this stunning flash the most powerful Lomographic flash ever, it also comes complete with 3 unique distance settings that allow you to set the power of the flash – giving you maximum creative control. This flash is also packaged with yellow, red and blue filters that will drench even the darkest pirate adventure in colorful light.
