Who knew that those three little letters could be so inspiring and iconic? For me, the *LC-A+* (from the Russian Lomo Kompact Automat) is successful because of the three features highlighted in its name.
Let’s start with Automat. The camera is built with an innovative auto-exposure meter (usually only available on very expensive professional cameras) which allows you to take beautiful photos in virtually any lighting condition—even in low-light and at night! This means there’s less settings for you to fuss with and more moments captured in film!
Next is that it’s compact. It may be small and pocketable but it’s a solid and robust camera outfitted with a superb Minitar lens that could rival its clunkier and more complex SLR counterparts. With its f/2.8 aperture and zone-focusing, creating exquisite images is made simple.
Combine these two together and you’re bound to be a master of the Lomo look that’s got film photographers the world over hooked. It’s also got a multiple exposure switch so you can shoot interesting doubles, as well as many other compatible accessories that make photography fun to (lomo)learn and easy to (lomo)love!
