Shooting with the Lubitel+ is different than anything you’ve experienced before! Try for yourself at our Lubitel Lovers workshop.

Join us for an introduction to the Lubitel 166+ and its history, along with tips, tricks, and techniques that will turn you into a Lubitel Lover for life.

We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
