When it comes to modern camera innovations–unless you’re a professional photographer–you’re probably most concerned with the upgrades to the latest smartphone set because that best camera is the one you always have with you and all that jazz. But there’s a feature set between the world of DSLR and modern smartphones that, despite being gimmicky, combines the style of film, the joy of instant gratification, and the tangibility of a physical product. We are, of course, talking about the world of modern instant cameras and, for our money, Lomography remains on top. From the beginning, Lomography has combined modern hardware with old school tech to produce classics like the Lomo’InstantFisheye 2 Camera, and the Lomo Instant Wide Victoria Peak Camera. Film is still dead according to most people, but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing another Instax-film format camera in the Lomography Instant Automat Camera and Lenses Bora Bora Edition. With a fully automatic shutter and two shooting modes, operation is super straightforward. Pair that with remote control shutter release, built-in flash, and multiple lenses/attachments (wide-angle, close-up, fisheye, Splitzer attachment, color flash filters), and you have the recipe for a crowd-pleaser that will deliver for decades of events.


When it comes to watches that combine quality, design, durability and affordability, there’s no better value proposition than VAER’s C5 Field Watch. As they put it–and we agree–the rugged-yet-refined collection offers a guaranteed waterproof warranty, scratchproof sapphire crystal, USA-built Ameriquartz movement, C1 SuperLuminova, and your choice of two interchangeable straps. We hesitate throwing around the “best ever” moniker when it comes to anything, but it fits in the case of this watch. Even better, pricing starts at only $209 for quartz or $449 for automatic movements, with free US shipping and returns. What are you waiting for? Get your VAER Watch today.
