Lomography La Sardina Marathon

Lomography has announced a new analog 35mm film camera, the La Sardina Marathon, made out of a sardine can comes in four colours has a plastic 22mm f/1.8 wide angle lens, and is available with or without flash priced at 89 Euros or 49Euros respectively. More information is available on Lomography's website.

From Lomography: Straight from the La Sardina fish market, Lomography brings you four stylish cameras that will take analogue lovers’ hearts by storm. Meet El Capitán, Fischer’s Fritze, Sea Pride and Marathon, the first four colorful clones (with a 1000 more to come) of the brand-new La Sardina camera. La Sardina is a point and shoot camera, using 35mm film and equipped with a plastic wide-angle lens that enables pros and beginners to shoot beautiful Lomographs easily. 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.

While its designs are flashy and stylish, the technical features of La Sardina are humbly reduced to the basics to enable even the greenest of greenhorns to make a first step into Lomography. Say hello to your new favourite camera!

They can't be serious.....Sad

Is 90 or 50 Euros such a paltry amount of money to waste.....Grin

Take stock of what paltry amounts of cash can do for a worthy charity....!!!

Nothing like a rant to start the day......Wink

Actually, I think it's pretty cool. Now I just have to find 49 from somewhere; maybe I'll steal it from Barnardos.
