Who Knew Sardine Tins Could Inspire Lomography's Camera Design?

A new category of film cameras has been welcomed into the Lomography family today, all eating up 35mm film and for seafarin' types only. The La Sardina family has four different models to choose from, all with 22mm wide-angle lenses.

As well as taking wide-angle photos, users can also create arty double exposures by flicking the MX switch or rewinding a knob. There are two different focal settings to choose from also.

The four designs include the El Capitán, a red and yellow camera, and Fischers Fritze, a very fishy blue one, both of which come with the "Fritz the Blitz" flash which is Lomography's most powerful flash ever, and lets you choose three distance settings for reaching with your light. Like with the Diana cameras, there are two settings - "bulb" for night-time use, and "normal" for daytime use. Both these models cost £89 ($136).

Two cheaper models come in at the £49 ($75) mark, the Sea Pride and the Marathon. Identical to the more expensive two models, they lack the flash and have more sedate aesthetics. [Lomography La Sardina]
