Twenty eight years ago today our beloved Lomo LC-A was born. So it goes without saying that there’s plenty of celebrating going on at Lomography HQ in Vienna at the moment. Amidst these celebrations we’ve managed to sneak 28 cameras out of the warehouse. Read on to find out what we’re doing with them.
It was tough distracting the LomoSecurity Guards. It took plenty of chocolate cake to make them take their eyes off the LC-A vault which they guard day and night 365 days a year.

So here’s the deal. We’re giving away these 28 recently smuggled Lomo LC-A Russia Day cameras at a massive 38% off – Just use the voucher code LCABIRTHDAY at check out. If you want one, hurry up and order because LomoSecurity will soon notice we’ve replaced the precious Lomo LC-A+ Russia Day cameras with inflatable substitutes.
