Lomo'Instant Automat Glass Review

Lomo'Instant Automat Glass Review
 PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $189
Lomography offers a selection of different instant cameras to fit each of Instax’s print sizes, along with an almost overwhelming set of different colour and design options.



We’ve tested the Automat Glass Magellan, which comes in a pretty snazzy black and neon orange setup, but you can find the Automat model in a variety of other designs on Amazon.
It’s pretty clear that Lomography’s focus is on people who are pretty serious about photography, and while this has some great point-and-shoot options, to get the most out of it you’ll want to play around a bit more.

It comes with a 38mm wide-angle lens with an f/4.5 aperture, but thanks to the standard lens threading you’ll be able to attach other lenses - for example, the included close-up lens, designed for photos at a range of 10cm.

The Automat uses Instax Mini prints, and captures impressive detail in portrait and landscape shots, but struggles a bit more in close-ups. Low-light photos aren’t great either - even with brightness adjustments, typically the flash either washes the photo out or fails to light it properly.

There’s a selfie mirror on the front of the body, but unhelpfully it’s built into the shutter button - so the moment you try and take the photo you lose sight of yourself, somewhat defeating the purpose. It’s the wrong orientation for the camera too, which seems a daft oversight.

Where this Lomography camera excels is when you get into more complex shots. The bulb mode is one of the best around, allowing you to expose the film for up to 30 seconds, while this is also the only camera we’ve seen with multiple exposure (as opposed to double), letting you expose the film unlimited times before choosing to print.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.
