edited-2416

So, it’s been a while but Lomography has been busy konstrukting something interesting for all of its fans and analogue photography fans! Here it is! On 13 June 2013, the Konstruktor was launched worldwide at Lomography Gallery Stores.

I was pleased to attend the Launch Party at Lomography Gallery Singapore. Here are some photos I took of the set on display at the LGS!

Oh look! You can see what you’re shooting! Focusing works! 😉 Plus, the lens is detachable – which means we might see some interchangeable lenses coming! Hooray!!! During the party, there was a Sandwich Slam (sandwich making contest) going on, and well, who could say No to being part of the action?
