Excerpt: Unfortunately, the second day I had this camera I dropped it on a concrete sidewalk, being paranoid I immediately took a roll of film and all was ok, net result, a bit of paint rubbed off. It can be very finicky loading film, Fuji Color is not easy, Kodak goes thru with ease.
Pros: really and generally works well and is alot of fun, although not worth the money.
Cons: setting the ASA is very stupid and clumsy, a tiny wheel, and an even tinier window to see what you are doing, almost impossible to see what you,ve just set, especially if you are wearing bifocals, this really needs some fixing, cannot believe they went into production with this good, someone is n...
Excerpt: I bought my first LC-A in 1988 from Jessops; it cost £32. Unluckily, it was stolen (along with 2 Nikons) within a year. I thought the camera looked quite funky (it is a loose copy of the Cosina CX2), this was the main reason for purchasing it.
Excerpt: I discovered the LC-A after seeing a spread in a magazine on this much loved little camera. What attracted me was the colours in the photos and the rather cavalier method of taking pictures - people's elbows, blurred ceilings, awkward shots of the sky, everything seemed to look beautiful.
Excerpt: A few months ago I was strolling through Bristol when I came across a shop selling a collection of kitsch goodies and two camera's that were slightly out of place. One of them was a LOMO. I saw the examples of the photographs and spent a very worthwhile £50.
Pros: A change from the norm of digital perfect instant photos
Excerpt: As I am rather old-fashioned when it comes to photographing, one of my favourite cameras is the Russian-made LOMO LC-A. It is very special in many ways, you will see why… Mine was shipped directly from Russia in an extraordinary ugly plastic box, as a gift from my dear uncle about ten years ago.
Pros: For all lighting conditions, great fun to use
Excerpt: If you are looking for a camera that can stand our from the crowd but you can't afford a Leica. A lomo is your choice. It is made in Russian. It is a very basic camera with no zoom, autofocus or flash functions. The appearence is simple and it is black.
Pros: easy to use and it's funky .
Cons: the quality of the pictures can't be guarantee .
