I was bored and looked around at some camera stuff when I suddenly came across this (in my eyes) ugly „thing“. Ok, try the next link...STOP!...Is that right? What I saw written there prevented me from going on clicking. Now this one got my full attention and after searching some facts and pictures on flickr (additionally I found pandre on a pic) I decided to get me one of these.
This full automatic point & shooter takes 35mm material from ISO 64 – ISO 1600 and exposes your film through a 2.8/35mm auto focus Carl Zeiss T* Tessar lens, unbelievable, one of the best lenses in this little camera. The electronic shutter works from 1/630 to 1 second. A motor drive advances your film after every shot right to the next frame. The built in flash works quite well, there is a self timer as well as a tripod mount. But the chief attraction is the „New Angle Scope“, a second viewfinder on top of your camera which is almost similar to a waist level finder. Shooting from the hip with a viewfinder, that is for a Lomographer somehow strange…
This camera is really fun, but it doesn`t patronize you from blurry pictures. The shutter button releases sometimes too easy. Hey, but what do you expect from a used camera which just came over for a few bucks?

Before smartphones and digital cameras, Diego Uchitel used a Polaroid to test his lighting. For many of his subjects, these dress rehearsal shots turned out as marvelous as the published pictures.
