  • Excerpt: what do i have to say? if you're into analogue photography, you will get tons of amazing pictues out of this little wonder. The colours are blasting and every picture has it's own random vignetting. Because of its automatic light meter it's really easy to use and perfect for snapshots. My...

  • Excerpt: No megapixels, no movie mode, no HD output or anything like that, just raw film, with the same iso setting for 36 shots and the incredibly exciting moment when the lab man gives you your processed films :) This camera is no match for any digital camera around in terms of specs, but the whole...

A wonderfully unique pocket camera

Ryan, B&H Photo
7 August 2008
  • Summary: I am an avid amateur photographer. Despite owning a DSLR and plenty of accessories, I often feel the need to go out with a camera be unencumbered by it. I could have bought any one of the myriad of pocket digital cameras on the market but strayed away in an attempt to recapture the playful spontaneity of always having a camera on you. The LC-A+ fits in my pocket just right. It prevents me from taking tons of pictures thanks to the limitations of a roll of film.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Compact, Fast Film Loading, Meters Well, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Limited focusing

Back to basics....

wolfgang7, B&H Photo
8 July 2008
  • Summary: Got into photography a few years ago, tried canon G9, several DSLRs....got into urban candids which got me shooting in B&W, or at least desaturated quite a bit. Eventually I found out about lomography and looked into getting a holga, came across this LOMO camera. I'm not into the whole multiple exposure + weird angle shoot from the hip thing with light streaks at night and all that stuff, but this camera serves as an incredible tool for getting the shot I want when I...

Lomo Lc-a+ 35MM Film Camera Review

Jerry, Unbeatable
3 May 2012
  • 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. I,ve now shot quite a bit of film, the results were (to be honest) excellent, the camera handles well, the viewfinder is clear and bright, the instruction sheet while trying in a vain attempt to be...
  • 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 nut using his brain.

  • 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. I bought my current LC-A in 2002 from www.lomography.com; it cost £95 (how much?!?!) This was a drastic price increase, probably to help pay for the facilities available when becoming a member of the website. ...
  • Pros: sharp lens, fabulous low - light capability, rear curtain flash sync

Loveable LOMO

mozip78, Ciao
19 September 2003
  • Excerpt: "...photos I assume taken by lomo devotees from around the planet. At the time I bought it, it was about 75-80 quid, which at the time I thought was a little pricey, but there's nothing around quite like it. I got a little box containing film, instructions, a book, and signed up to the 'club' (so you get letters and emails about new products and events). The camera itself is quite small (slightly smaller than those larger post-it notes), and has a ...

Make yourself and artist for £50

16 July 2003
  • 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. It is the ultimate old school Russian camera. Small black, communist and tankline it seems fairly indestructible, though it's not something I've tested extensively. It comes in a nice old fashioned ...

Made in U.S.S.R.

Schini, Ciao
21 November 2001
  • Excerpt: "...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. Its appearance didn’t attract me either, as its design seemed to have been drawn by a dozen Kazaks after a night of heavy vodka drinking. As if things couldn’t get worse, they also wrote the handbook… Luckily I found somebody ...
  • Pros: For all lighting conditions, great fun to use
  • Cons: rather expensive, Russian handbook
