The Story Behind The Belair X 6-12

We’ve developed a daring and pioneering new medium-format camera that will not only bring a new level of lens quality to Lomographers, but a whole host of exciting new developments that make the most of this truly amazing photography format.

It’s no secret; at Lomography we love medium-format photography. For one thing, it was medium-format cameras that NASA’s astronauts took with them as they first explored the frontiers of space. Well, now it’s high time for us Lomographers to start exploring new frontiers too; we’re ready to dive headfirst into the full possibilities of medium-format film and to let creativity soar amongst the stars.

An Affordable Automatic 120 Panoramic Camera

Carrying on the tradition of its distant cousin, the LOMO LC-A+, the Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter boasts an automatic shutter system that makes shooting perfectly-exposed photos as easy as clicking the shutter – and all this on 120 film! The expansive 6x12 format allows you to capture a vast space that makes for jaw-dropping photos; whether landscape, portrait or anything else you feel like shooting. Wait there’s more; the Belair X 6-12 can also shoot in both square 6x6 and regular 6x9 formats. So whatever shape you’re in, the Belair X 6-12 is ready to match you!

Take Medium-Format Photography with you Everywhere

Who says panoramic medium-format cameras have to be the size of a small car? We know Lomographers are always on the move; that’s why the painstakingly developed and reliable fold-out bellows system allows the Belair X 6-12 to collapse to a convenient and portable size - meaning you can take the camera (and stunning medium-format photos) wherever you go.

A World of Possibilities: Interchangeable Lenses

Together with a team of experienced optics engineers, the Lomographic camera developers have refined both a 90mm lens and a 58mm wide-angle lens; each lens offers high quality photos while still being loaded with the Lomographic charm we all know and love. Oh, and this is just the start: the Belair X 6-12 features an exchangeable lens system for ultimate experimentation and flexibility – you can rest assured we’re already working on new and exciting lenses!

Automatic Exposure Shutter

Carrying on the tradition of its distant cousin, the LOMO LC-A+, the Belair X 6-12 camera boasts an electronic automatic shutter. This means that just like with the LOMO LC-A+, the correct film sensitivity needs to be set so that photos turn out neither dark, nor overexposed. Whilst the LOMO LC-A+ shutter closes only once there is enough light, the Belair X 6-12’s auto-exposure range is EV4 – EV15 and this is calculated just before the shutter is released.

The minimum recommended conditions when shooting in dim light with the Belair X 6-12 are ISO/ASA dial set to 100 with 100 ISO film. If you’re after brighter results in a dark setting, a high ISO film or switching to B (Bulb) Mode is recommended. B Mode will expose your shot for as long as you keep the shutter pressed.
