i got a brand new lubitel! yessss!
so, you remember how i wrote about wanting a lubitel, but getting myself a holga instead? (week 14: holga, holga! ) yeah, yeah. i had a lot of good reasons, but still i couldn’t resist the latest offer from lomography and purchased myself a lubtitel 166+. damn! i mean yay! ;)
as you can see i’m still torn between “damn, so much money” and “yay, lubitel”. i’m aware that the lubitel is still a pretty cheap medium format camera (compared to a hasselblad for example) but nevertheless it costs as much as all my other analogue cameras combined.
however, the camera might be worth it. last week i shot the first roll of film in my new camera and i absolutely love the results. these are only some quick test shots, at the danube river, after work, but they turned out really great:
so sharp! see? :)
i’m not really used to the viewfinder yet, but I will manage after some more practice. aside from that i’m really happy about all the settings the lubitel offers. finally a camera that allows me to set the aperture and the shutter speed any way i want and doesn’t tell me what to do.
i can’t wait to shoot the next roll. and many more :)
