Film Adventures #2: The Lomo'Instant Automat Camera

 Hi Gang!

   A couple of months ago, I picked up the Lomo'Instant Automat, because it was sitting on the shelf in a Barnes and Noble, and because I'm such a sucker for anything pertaining to photography, I couldn't leave without it. It takes Instax Film, which I already had boxes of, since owning the instax mini 8, Boy Wonder, bought me for our anniversary. 


  I'm going to go over the camera pretty thoroughly, but one of the biggest things I love about it, is you can take selfies with it. A big purponent, of why I still have so much film since becoming the owner of an instax mini 8 is that the camera is just shaped wierd. It is difficult to have the lens face you and you press the button at the same time, plus, the flash is nearly always on, resulting in a less than flattering photo, and while instax film is widely available it isn't the cheapest. 

 I'm still learning how to use it, but so far I really like it! It came with 5 different lenses. A fishe-eye, splitzer, close-up, wide-angle and a remote control lens.  I'm currently only using the kit lense, but now I've switched to Monochrom film, I definitely want to experiment more. 


 I love that its instant, and I get it as fast as I take it. I haven't found a shop that will process film yet, so I haven't been using my other cameras as much, even though I'm itching to take my minolta out for a spin. It comes with a single, double and landscape portrait options. I generally photograph without the flash, since I have experience with the Instax Mini 8. Here are a few of the pictures I've taken with it.
