    Instax Wide back available

    Lomography offer for their 6x12cm finder-camera Belair a back for Instax Wide film yielding a 6x10cm image.

    http://shop.lomography.com/de/belair-instant-back
    (in German, as Lomography does not give me access to the english description)

    www.lomography.com


    This back migh also be used for Instax DIY-Projects other than modifiying an Instax camera.

    Now if someone made a Graflok version, that would be interesting.

    No, it is location based. That shop site even changes my browser setting!

    I've tried it with two browsers just because of this discussion. One has strict settings, and the other I keep quite loose. I'm in the U.S., and both browsers give me the German page.

    At first I got the German page with a notice at the top (in German) about changing my shipping address to the US, because the site saw that my IP was from the US. I clicked to change, and now I get the page in English.

    I do not understand computers...

    That's why I love that crank at that back. Gives me trust in what I'm doing.

    Mine is stuck in German. I guess that must be a national language here in Canada. Time to clean the wax out of my ears, I guess......

    Even after creating an account, any reference to that back or the store swings me into German. I chalk it up to bad QA of their site. I have used and ordered stuff from there before (2 years ago) with no issues. It's probably a cookie from hell overriding something. I suspect if you went to the site first then clicked the url in the first post, it would probably be ok. That would be the opposite of what I did...

    It really doesn't matter. It's a back for a camera that has a soft focus tendency. Why give a large image area to a low resolution lens?

    Because the enlargement of the image in case of the Instax film is much less than typically done with negative film?

    (Well, than of course one could ask why the Belair got that lens in first case.)
