LC-A and KRAB (The Red Sea underwater experience)

6

Don't miss the great opportunity for joyful underwater Lomo shooting. My extra Lomo rule from now on - always have the KRAB for the LC-A when going swimming!

At the end of October my wife and I went to a well known resort amongst crazy Russian tourists in Egypt – Hurgada. Well, why couldn’t I try something fresh and new for my Lomo experience especially as the light conditions in Egypt coupled with the warm and clear waters of Red Sea provided a good opportunity for underwater shooting? So I went to St. Petersburg’s Lomo embassy and returned with paper box and a brick of ten 400 iso film. That was a red sexy KRAB underwater housing for my LOMO LC-A.

During 1 week in Hurgada I shot 4 films. I strongly recommend to use high iso speed film (e.g. 400 or even 800) for better results. Red Sea is rich of corals, different fishes and sea-urchins. But I’m not a serious diver actually. I just swim with a simple mask and oxygen pipe but quite pleased and satisfied with the results. And also don’t forget to clean and smear the rubber seals of KRAB!

    Great review! Has anyone shot with the LC-A and Krab in an indoor pool? I want to do a shoot with a friend but I'm worried about the lighting being an issue....
