Lubitel 166+ Lovin

4

Come and see why the Lubitel 166+ has charmed so many analogue hearts!

Lubitel Lovers swear by the knockout sharpness that this classic twin-lensed reflex camera can deliver. Thanks to its glass lens, you can also expect punchy colors, great contrast and saturation! On top of that, the feeling of peering down the waist-level viewfinder is beyond describable!

The new Lubitel 166+ hosts the classic features – the multicoated glass lens, the manual controls, and the cable release/tripod thread – but offers new features for more exciting, creative options. This baby can go 120 or 35mm, use any standard hotshoe flash (try the Colorsplash Flash or the Diana+ Flash!), and go panoramic if you wish. Visit the microsite for the complete specs, view the Photos submitted by our countless Lubitel lovers, or treat yourself to a great relic from the past!

Be sure to read one of our online reviews of this gemmick!
