Lomography Announce the All-New LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back:

Simon Skinner - 3 weeks ago

Lomography has scored another masterstroke; this time introducing this addition to the large format photographer’s toolkit, the LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back; making large format photography more accessible and affordable than ever.

LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back 4

Developed with pro photographers working in large format, this is the very first readymade solution to shoot Instax film with 4×5 cameras. Reawakening instant photography in large format since peel-apart film was
discontinued in 2016, the new back from Lomography is compatible with all Graflok-equipped 4×5 cameras. That’s pretty much every 4×5 camera out there!

The new 4×5 back from Lomography makes for the perfect tool for experimenting with a large format camera setup before committing to a shot with [expensive] 4×5 sheet film and has been designed to be used with Fujifilm Instax Wide film; the most accessible and affordable instant film on the market. It’s available in the PhotoBite Store at all times, so you know where to come for your stock!
