You always wanted a camera with a liquid-filled lense. You didn't? Even better. Here's something you didn't even know you wanted.

A gadget-free panoramic camera with a lense that you can fill with coffee. Or tea. Or just water.

Couldn't be simpler. You don't have to focus, or set the shutter speed, no battery.

Here you go https://shop.lomography.com/en/hydro-ch ... country=us

The coffee camera. Just £60. A price that doesn't give grounds for divorce.

A present for the man who's got everything. :| And the calendar says it's not 1st April?

Nice alliteration, though. ;)

The world’s first 35 mm format panoramic camera with a liquid-filled lens THere could be a good reason for it being the first!

It sounds like one of those ridiculous Dragons' Den ideas where the inventor gets sent away with a flea in the ear.

As far as I can tell 'Lomography' is a reaction to digital photography whereby technical faults, such as light leakage are considered to be all part of the creative art:

Lomography is a genre of photography, involving taking spontaneous photographs with minimal attention to technical details. Lomographic images often exploit unpredictable non-standard optical traits of cheap toy camera (such as light leaks and irregular lens alignment), and non-standard film processing techniques, for aesthetic effect. Similar-looking techniques with digital photography, often involving "lomo" image postprocessing filters, may also be considered lomographic. The lomography trend peaked in 2011.

While cheap plastic toy cameras using film were and are produced by multiple manufactuers, lomography is named after the Soviet-era cameras produced by the "Leningradskoye Optiko-Mekhanicheskoye Obyedinenie.

Personally I find it a rather refreshing counterpoint now that almost anyone can produce excellent pictures with a 'phone and almost no photographic skills whatsoever.
