We've been feeding everyone with their regular dose of drool-worthy analogue gear through the Lomopedia Resource Series, and we know many of these cameras are awesome enough to cause GAS -- Gear Acquisition Syndrome! See if you're lucky enough to have some of them already, or if your camera shelf and wallet can accommodate any or all of these cameras!
Don't feel like shooting with a hefty and heavy film SLR camera these days? Then, it's got to be a compact camera (or two) that you need to take with you. If you're not sure which handy dandy analogue companion to slip in your pockets and purses, we have a handful of suggestions that could help you make up your mind.
As great as the Lubitel 166+ is, there is one major disadvantage: the minimum focusing distance. While 80cm is close enough at most occasions, sometimes I would like to get closer. The easy solution to this is using close up filters, but most people who use use them end up guessing the correct focusing distance. From now on, you no longer have to guesstimate, but you can actually focus your image using your viewing lens! Read on and find out how.
In this post, I made a quick comparison between the Lomo LC-Wide and the LC-A, in the same conditions. Same place, day, time, and the same two films (a pair of fresh HP5+ belonging to the same production batch), both developed together in the same tank, and both digitalized with the same scanner (a professional Frontier mini-lab)
Wish me luck so I can get more slide film that I haven't tried to D.I.Y. redscale!
