An exciting addition to their line of legendary analog cameras, today Lomography releases the Lomo LC-Wide. The continuation of the iconic LC-A+ line retains its classic aesthetic but adds greater functionality—specifically the ability to shoot ultra-wide angle photos.

Relatively compact in size, the camera sports a 17mm lens with three different shoot modes (full, square and half format) that allow photographers to snap extreme close-ups and extra-wide panoramic shots. While it promises to keep producing the shadowy, saturated shots of the previous generations, it opens up the playing field by greatly expanding range and flexibility.

The box comes packed with extra goodies including film, an instruction book and a Lomography portrait book. One accessory sold separately, and definitely worth picking up, is the Instant Back. Simply pop it on and transform the LC-Wide into an instant camera.

The LC-Wide is available from Lomography online or in any of their retail stores for $390 and the Instant Back retails for $25.
