If you have a slow hand and an easy touch then the Lubitel 166+ is the camera for you. There’s something about its plastic body and peering down through the waist-level finder which makes it simply irresistible.
The Love Touch
Embrace all of the Lubitel’s little dials and knobs and throttle down a bit. Spend some time. Take it slow; there’s really no rush. Move your subject into the perfect position and have them cock their head just right. Plan out each little bit and savor every single moment. With results like these, you won’t regret it.

Whatever you do, just shoot from the hip with this gorgeous waist level camera.
Shooting with the Lubitel 166+ will unlock a whole new analogue experience for you. Now that it’s back in stock, it’s the perfect time for you to fall in love with the camera that will make everyone look twice.
