The official website has a great introduction about the Belair X 6-12. It seemed like I'd regret it if I missed the first wave pre-order. "Limited Edition" is very seducing, and the question isn't about "buying or not" but more about "which one to buy"...
I thought it would only come to me by Christmas Eve, but it came to me on the last day of November! A day prior to that, I received an e-mail from Lomography informing me that the goods would arrive shortly.
As soon as I received the package from Lomography I went on with my unboxing ceremony (and since this is my Christmas present to myself I decided to ivite the Christmas Q-py to celebrate):
Covered with black cloth, the Belair X 6-12 City Slicker even looks mysterious when unboxed.
The Belair X 6-12 City Slicker first edition is limited to 800 pieces. My certificatenumber is 244.
The conversation between Q-py and the Belair X 6-12 City Slicker:
Q-py: You are so handsome, so cool, and so stylish…
City Slicker: Of course!
Q-py: Could you get a picture please?
City Slicker: No problem, look into the lens and… smile!
I have a camera strap from my birthday a few years back which I haven’t been using and guess what, it fits just right onto the Belair X 6-12 City Slicker!
The hot-shoe reminds me of an external flash, and the external flash reminds me of the Colorsplash Flash. Prior to expanding the camera body, the Belair X 6-12 appears so thin! After attaching the viewfinder, lens, external flash and expanding the camera body, it looks like a Transformer!
Don’t be over-excited when you receive your camera! This is because Belair X 6-12 has a lot of hidden treasures which require your step-by-step attention in accordance to the user manual while exploring it.
