Introducing the Belair X 6-12

Offering Lomographers never-before-seen sharpness, depth of field and ultra-wide photos, it’s ready to fly your medium format photography into a whole new dimension.

Take off and experience medium format in the most delightful way possible with the Belair X 6-12! This camera boasts auto-exposure, versatility of 3 photo formats, lens interchangeability, extensive ISO range and multiple exposure capability—features that make this camera a true film photography pioneer!

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 6×12 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 6×6 and regular 6×9 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.
