Lomography Releases ‘Experimental Lens Kit,’ Turns MFT Shooters into Toy Cameras

Great news, Micro Four Thirds shooters — you no longer need Instagram filters and the like to make your photos look… how shall we put this… distressed.

That’s because toy camera powerhouse Lomography has just released an arsenal of plastic lenses that can add multiple-exposure, fisheye, color tint and other effects to previously ordinary shots.

Here’s a quick video intro to the new, “Experimental Lens Kit”:

The Experimental Lens Kit consists of three Micro Four Thirds-mount lenses: a fixed-aperture 160-degree fisheye, a 12mm wide-angle and a 24mm standard lens.

In addition to the plastic lens aesthetic and optical effects the lenses provide, each lens also comes equipped with a mechanical shutter for taking multiple exposures. All you have to do is leave the shutter on the camera open, and open/close the lens to get multiple perspectives in the same frame.

Lomography is particularly proud of that little feat, claiming that this is “the first lens kit in the world which allows you to take real, optical multiple exposure snapshots using digital cameras.”

Here are a few sample shots:

Each lens includes a slot for the color filters that come with the kit. The filters apparently allow you to change hues by inserting color gels.

So while you may say what you will about Lomo’s build quality and haphazard aesthetic effects, this sounds like an awful lot of creative options (see sample images above) for $ 90.
