New York, NY—Analog photographers can now capture the coastline in ultrawide-angle snaps and enjoy experimentation with the new Lomography La Sardina Acapulco Caleta.

Lightweight and portable for easy stowing, the camera features a rewind dial for creative possibilities. Users can take multiple exposures as well as mix ‘n’ match snaps with the rewind dial.

Furthermore, analog fans can get in close with a closest focusing distance of 24 inches. In addition, with zone focusing, “you can see those ships sailing in the distance or capture your catch of the day right up close,” the company announced.

The camera also comes with Lomography’s Fritz the Blitz flash attachment, the company’s most powerful flash, for nighttime use. What’s more, bulb mode creates long exposures, and the camera integrates a tripod mount.

Analog History in a Sardine Can

The Lomography La Sardina camera hails back to the Kandor Candid camera, designed by the Irwin Corporation in the 1930s. The Kandor was part of a family of novelty cameras that channeled the sleek, classic design of the humble sardine can.

Using 127 format film—a popular choice in the 1950s—these cameras were sold at drugstores and dime stores. Today, the Lomo La Sardina 35mm film camera is an innovative distant relation to the analog relic.

Lomography’s La Sardina Acapulco 35mm film camera bundled with the Fritz the Blitz flash retails for $119.
