Leica Sofort Limoland by Jean Pigozzi
Instant film camera
LimoLand by Jean Pigozzi Special Edition
The first special edition of the Leica Sofort, the LimoLand by Jean Pigozzi features re-designed front and rear panels that have been embellished with the vibrant and playful graphics of Mr. Limo, the logo that Jean Pigozzi, photographer, entrepreneur, and art collector, uses for his LimoLand fashion label. With a focus on color and playfulness, this camera is further complemented by a matching Easy Slider "icon Strap" shoulder strap from Artisan & Artist. This bright red nylon shoulder strap has a Mr. Limo embellishment on it and has an adjustable design. Additionally, this kit also includes two 10-sheet packs of Leica Sofort Color Instant Film.
The Sofort from Leica is an instant film camera, offering a new way to instantly develop and share your images. Designed with Leica's high-end signature style, it is compatible with a selection of Instax mini format film, including colour and monochrome film from Leica with a Warm White border. It uses an Automatik-Hektor 60mm f/12.7 lens, equivalent to 34mm in full-frame terms, with a three-zone manual focus selector to give you full control.
The Sofort features a compact body with intuitive buttons and a 0.37x optical viewfinder with target spot and macro parallax compensation for composing your images. Multiple automatic shooting modes make the Sofort easy to use. These include Automatic, Self-Portrait, People & Party, Action & Sport, Bulb, Self-Timer with 2 or 10 second delay, Double Exposure, and a Macro mode, making it possible to focus down to 0.3 m. While optimised for available light photography, it uses a mechanical shutter with speeds from 1/400 to as long as 1/8 second and a built-in flash with a later firing speed for a more natural look.
Photographers wanting more control can use the exposure compensation setting which can be set to -0.7 or +0.7 EV. An integrated 1/4"-20 thread on the base of the camera makes it possible to use it with a tripod, and strap lugs make it easy to attach a strap and carry around all day. It uses a rechargeable Li-ion battery pack for approximately 100 shots before needing to be recharged.
