There are other models with chrome and snazzy-looking leatherette that reminds me of the Polaroid SX-70 design scheme.
Yes, it has a bellows. In 2013, we will be buying bellows cameras. Take that, you damn digital sheep.
I'm turning 56 on 12-12-12. What better way to celebrate than buy myself a Belair X 6-12. I don't need a full-frame D600. It can't do what this camera does. 6x12 -- even if it has that Lomography look, is something that is very appealing to me. Is the camera pricey? No, not really. In today's dollars, I am betting it is cheaper than the Kodak Tourist cameras that took 6x9 620 film back in the 1940s and 50s. So, I am pre-ordering one today. Of course, I can't actually review the camera now, because I don't have one. But I do want one. Damn those Lomography folks, making cameras that people want. They should buy Kodak, as they appear to have a better grasp of selling things than the dumbasses in Rochester.
Oh, and by the way, congratulations to Lomography for 20 years of fun.
