Qrro Likes The Lubitel 166+

Cesar aka Qrro, from Lima, Peru tells us why he's so in love with the Lubitel 166+. Is it your favourite too?

My favourite camera? Tricky question! I always carry my Lomo LC-A+ RL and I love it, but I’d die for my Lubitel 166+. I think it depends on what format I want to shoot, I have other cameras, SLR, multilens, etc but its kinda hard to pick just one.. But if i have to, I guess i will choose the Lubitel 166+ !

I like it cause medium format is absolutely amazing, the details you can get, the possibility of enlarging your shots to really big formats plus the feeling of shooting with such a beautiful camera as the Lubitel 166+ is priceless.

I would recommend this camera to perfectionists; people who will definitely take the time to compose the picture and set the camera. People who have experience with other cameras and have tried a number of films – so they would know what they want on their pics. It’s a great camera but taking some time to get to know it is key.
