Lubitel Is For Lovers

5

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.

Games of Love

Of course it doesn’t all have to be serious and methodical. That’s not very Lomographic. The Lubitel 166+ will lend itself for some heavy experimentation too. So shoot 120 or 35mm; take two, three or a dozen shots on the same frame. You can even shoot a huge overlapping, multi-exposed panoramic image. Whatever you do, just shoot from the hip with this gorgeous waist level camera.

The Look Of Love

Cast in plastic, the Lubitel 166+ is your lightweight, everyday companion. Feed it a steady diet of color, black & white, slide and redscale film and it will satisfy your unyielding desires to capture everything around you.

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.

    Would love to have a lubitel 166+, next to my lubitel 166B, but it's so expensive :(

    The Instant Project

    It was a cold and cloudy winter day in 2012 when I came up with the idea of compiling photographs of people's faces. I decided that the most personal way to do it is through instant shots. They are one of a kind and you immediately have something in your hands.

    There are many possible reasons for taking pictures.

And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print.
