Here we go – another vintage ‘review’ and ‘how to use’ sort of post, this time I’ve got with me my favorite ‘toy’ camera, the classic Lomo LC-A. Unlike the new made in China Lomo LC-A+ (which is also pretty good), this one is a vintage original, made in Russia (notice the lettering – think I paid extra for that!) and even though (in my opinion) this vintage one is a better and more valuable camera than the new Chinese version, I got this on eBay for around half the price of a brand new LC-A+. Pretty good deal, if you ask me.
The LC-A is made by LOMO (Leningrad Optical Mechanical Amalgamation), and was introduced in 1984. It’s a fixed lens camera, with a 35mm f2.8 fixed focal length lens, an electronically controlled shutter, and features fully automatic exposure. It was discontinued in 2005, and has since been manufactured in China and branded the Lomo LC-A+
