    Well, from the pictures it appears that only covers are metal, not the whole body.

    what are the lenses? I looked and looked and it does not say. Really crap site for tech information about the cameras they are selling.

    As far as I can see Lomography typically give no information about the lenses of their cameras. (And the manufacturer of the Holga range only differs between "glass" and "plastic".)

    They look great, but the sample photos look like they came out of a $25 Helga. Don't think so.

    What's wrong with photos looking like they were made with a Holga? People pay enormous amounts for smartphones with very good cameras built in and then go out of their way to make photos that look like they were made with a Holga.

    I agree. I don't think there was ever the concept behind Lomography to offer cameras that can produce photographs that would be considered high-end technicalwise.

    But is that look something that came from the camera as such, or from their choice of film and development?

    I'm considering one of those cameras as an entry into medium format, but I'm not interested in the Holga look.

    Look at the price compared with the recent Fujifilm/Bessa medium format folder. I think some people's expectations are a bit high!

    I've bought and use stupider cameras (Graphcheck sequence camera, etc...). Why wouldn't I enjoy using this one?

    IMHO the colour samples look similar to colour samples taken with the LC-A. I wouldn't doubt if they deliberately designed their lenses for this 6x12 to replicate that look, as a fair bit of their target hipster market (no offense) seems to like the colour qualities of the LC-A.

    I'm still debating about whether to get one of these, but in the meantime it has inspired me to figure out a more practical way to use my converted Polaroid 110A (which has a 127mm lens, which isn't very wide, but is very sharp) that shoots 6x12.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.
