The new sardine can lomo

New lomo camera has just been released recently and it's called La Sardina! The designs were inspired by vintage sardine cans and I gotta say, I am in love with it. The colours, the typography, everything just looked lovely! If I were to choose, I would probably go for the green one (which is called Marathon) or the white one (Sea Pride) but then, any colours would be just fine! I went to Photo Crafts in Pyramid during lunch hour today and these babies are on sale there already :D Contemplating whether I should get it or not since I've been wanting a Diana F+ and FishEye so I don't know yet. I might get it for my birthday, at least there's a reason to buy one right? Hahaha...

Mindblowing wide-angle lens and multiple exposures? That's pretty cool eh?

On the other note, it's been a while since I shoot something from an analogue camera...I still haven't finish the roll from my Supaheadz UWS since I haven't been going out to interesting places -___- But I might have a chance to snap some photos during Urbanscapes which is in 2 weeks time! Anyone else going?
