Lomography Launches Waterproof “Simple Use” Camera

May 1, 2020

Yesterday Lomography announced a new option in its arsenal of “Simple Use” 35mm cameras – the “Analogue Aqua”, or essentially a new underwater housing made to fit their already popular line of disposable-style reloading “Simple Use” cameras.

Lomography says:

Lomography’s Simple Use Reloadable Film Camera + Underwater Case is the latest addition to our reusable Simple Use family. Whatever the weather, the Analogue Aqua will be your fearless photo taking friend, swim-up bar sidekick, beach bum buddy and poolside pal. Slip under the surface and snap your way through a film of nautical negatives – from the sandy seashore to your local lido, rippling rock pools to private onsens, your aqua adventures await!

The “Analogue Aqua” underwater housing is waterproof up to 10m underwater and available in 2 pre-loaded flavours; with either Lomography’s Colour Negative 400, or their Lomochrome Purple 400 ISO film. There’s no mention of the case being available individually, for those who already own a Lomography Simple Use camera.

The cameras are the same tried-and-tested Simple Use cameras Lomography has been selling for years, featuring a 31mm focal length lens with a fixed aperture of f/9 and fixed shutter speed of 1/120th.

Interestingly, for an underwater camera, there’s still an inbuilt flash – with 3 basic built-in flash gels present, to modify the colour of the light. The camera’s focus range is from approximately 1m to Infinity.

The Analogue Aqua is now up for pre order over on Lomography’s Website in either regular Colour Negative 400 or Lomochrome Purple flavours, and shipping starts beginning of May for China/Hong Kong, with deliveries to Europe and the US expected by the end of May 2020.
