With Christmas right around the corner, now is the time when we’re all sat racking our brains for that perfect gift idea. The year I was gifted my first Polaroid camera, it was one of the best Christmas’ ever. I loved it. Moments were not only instantly tangible, but there was something quite ethereal  about the quality of the photos as they developed right in front of me, that made those memories even more special. That’s the thing about these cameras – they’re intentional. A thoughtful and often romantic present, that let you capture memories in an old and authentic way; one that this new. digital age has somewhat buried. You cannot pick your favourite selfie from a reel of twenty in the way your smart phone lets you, or spend hours with them on Photoshop. These are keepsakes.

The Lomo’Instant Montenegro Camera from Lomography could not be more nostalgic. And it is perhaps their most creative camera yet. The Montenegro comes with a Splitzer and three, multitalented lense attachements including Fisheye, Portrait and Close-Up. To help customise, you also have brightly coloured gel filters to play around with, which really let you get a bit artistic and take your photos to a whole new level. The camera is equipped with infinitely long exposure time, perfect for low light or night-time shooting and getting those coveted, light-streaked photos. And, for the more experienced among us, Lomography currently have the largest aperture setting in the instant photography world at f/8, meaning brighter shots. The brand is doing a fantastic job keeping analogue photography alive and the Montenegro model is the ultimate, vintage style camera to gift this Christmas. Fancy one for yourself?! Clickstay, the ultimate holiday company, have teamed up with Lomography to give away one to you for free…
