    Very nice! but not affordable for the common man!
    Bosses of the Lomo imagine something for everyone!
    Lomo is an elite club to be? :-P

    sorry, but I think it's quite ugly, though it has a certain class... but I'm not a fan of leather and gold. I'ld prefer a cardboard or wooden one, a camera for the masses just as it was intended!

  18. takezzo
    takezzo ·

    oh, i thought it was a pop1 camera... :P

  19. emilios

    Yeah i would feel a bit awkward having a 24 carat gold camera hanging around my neck.

    Whoever pays that much for an LC-A literally needs to get their head checked. The price on the Lomo site is far too high even for the regular model, but this is just ridiculous.

  21. zulupt

    Isnt this the winning camera from the LC-a+ camera costumization???
    Iḿ pretty shure that I saw one just like this... In my home!

  22. paper_doll
    paper_doll ·

    i knew it :)
    and yeah, zulupt is right... it could be a coincidence, but he designed the gold lca for the costumization competition.

  23. ndroo

    Enough reason for a Lomographer to get robbed. :D Nah. I'll pass. I'd be dead if you have a gold Diana though. :P

  24. somapic
    somapic ·

    zulupt - what a coincident! Your design really looks similar but be assured that our lomo LC-A+ gold design was already finished before we even started the customisation competition!Originally it should have been released november 2009 already! For the customisatino competition we will still need some time to choose a winner - it´s a complicated process as so many good ideas were submitted! You´ll find an update about it in the magazine soon!

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWW! CMON ! I just bought an LCA+ two weeks ago :(

    @ Somapic: What a coincidence indeed, it felt like a kick in the teeth... :(
    Yesterday I couldnt sleep because I was too anxious, it really leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.........

    Ah ah ah ! A bling bling cheap cam !

    @ zulupt: somapic will contact you about this, since you were so close to an actual product we were working on. the whole product has been in the making already a long time, so it was a real coincidence. some of the designs submitted are also similiar to prototypes and samples of cameras we have, of course we also tried around with different colors and materials here, since the lca+ is our flagship camera.
    @ all : thanks for all the feedback

  34. ethermoon

    Cool, but what does it mean Original Russian Lens? Is it like LCA+RL? :-)

  35. mgf

    insaaaaaaaaaaane!

  36. paper_doll

    @snoop: we can all see that this camera is very very similar to the one zulupt designed for the customization comp! coincidence or not, lsi should have been more careful. if your camera was already in the making, then you could at least have warned him. i don't know zulupt but i feel bad for him and i can see why he would be frustrated...

  37. u-t-e
    u-t-e ·

    I'm with paper_doll about that issue (and zulupt should get one of the 130 cameras...unless they're all sold out by now).
    And concerning the gold and the price: I find it decadent and was hoping for a different product. Bummer...

  38. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    This is a good investment. I can only dream of how much will increase the value of a thing like this once they sold out, only 130 pieces...I'll buy 4 or 5 of this but first of all I've to kill my parents to keep my heritage :)

  39. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    Well, looks really prestigious, but I don't think I'll be comfortable with such a cam in my hands .... and for the price, I'd rather prefer buy a LC-A+ RL + Instant Back and a whole stock of instax film!!! :))))))

  40. bongofury

    where I have seen this ....???
    remember at ZULUPT´s home .
    LSI should give one to Zulu...

  41. little_porcelain
    little_porcelain ·

    It's a beautifull camera but ... it is Zulu's Custom Camera :( It is really unfair people!
    LSI, you have to do something ... :(

  42. ouroborosx
    ouroborosx ·

    hmmm... interesting debate... but i think it's fair to assume that the hard-working designers at lomography have experimented with every color and material for the lca in the past 15 years, so simply saying "i thought of it in gold" means you just thought of a color, and every color has been thought of for every camera... you may have thought of it before you saw one, but definitely not before someone else thought of it... i can vouch for the designers when i tell you that i saw this prototype a year ago in Vienna... no joke, a year.

  43. takezzo
    takezzo ·

    golden rule #11: don't think, just buy it!! :P

  44. lomosexual_manboy
    lomosexual_manboy ·

    Yeah I agree with ouroborosx that anyone could just pick a color and go with it. That doesn't mean you deserve a prize...especially a 600 dollar one. It was a good idea, and a lucky guess/coincidence.

  45. satomi
    satomi ·

    Ohhhhhhh, it's so fancy....I WANT ONE!!!=D

  46. paper_doll
    paper_doll ·

    @lomosexual_manboy: it's not just the same colour. you obviously haven't seen the camera.

  47. adamscott
    adamscott ·

    there is a gold one in the first few pages of the big Lomo LCA book... an early prototype i think

  48. lomosexual_manboy
    lomosexual_manboy ·

    I did look at the camera, it's gold with snake skin. So it's a similar idea what's the big deal. Like adamscott said there was even another in the LCA book. I'm not trying to take anything away from zulupt, but when everyone is saying to give away a 600 dollar camera for a coincidence...I mean, come on really? Hook up some piggies maybe...like on the old guess the camera/film blogs.

  49. nerdcist
    nerdcist ·

    sorry for zulupt but I guess LSI had designed this camera long before LCA customization began because usually it takes time from designing something to producing, from producing to launching/selling.
    about the price I think that it is reasonable considering the gold and it is a collectible item. you should check the price people pay for Leica accessories, not to mention the camera itself. or the lens

  50. cinzinc
    cinzinc ·

    i totally agree with everyone...
    ermm...that wasn't helpful to anyone i think =p

  51. babo
    babo ·

    Man... this one looks just like one of zulupt`s submitions!!

  52. crumpy
    crumpy ·

    wow. I love you Lomography, I really do... but that is petty damn ugly!

    at least that means I'm not sitting here wishing I had a spare £460 laying around! :)

  53. crumpy
    crumpy ·

    actually, part of me still wants it! lol

  54. rater
    rater ·

    Wow, seriously... the production of the camera takes way longer than a couple of months (when the rumble for the design of the LC-A started)... this is obviously a coincidence... and as someone pointed out, there is a golden LC-A already in the LC-A big book...

  55. zulupt

    It is natural for people to have their opinion and their own interpretation of this issue as people have the right to express their point of view.
    I’m not questioning the fact that my design and this camera is a coincidence, I truly believe in it.
    From what I have read in the comments, nobody is pointing his finger to the design team or LSI, there is no need to mix things up. I don’t want to earn something that I don’t deserve and I’m not trying to take some kind of advantage.
    Paper doll pictured it perfectly, it is all about disappointment and I am the only one to blame, I was the one who created high expectations on the previous day.
    As far as I’m concerned, LSI doesn’t owe me anything and I don’t owe anything to LSI.
    I respect all points of view but I also think that some are going the wrong way.
    Hope this comment is clear enough.

  56. cubilas
    cubilas ·

    @ nerdcist: how can you in any way compare this with a leica?

    to me the LC-A was designed as a cheap, crappy, easy to use camera for everyone, this doesn't really fit into that philosophy, but I understand this version could have a certain collectable value or something
    though it's still a crappy camera (which is why the lc-a is so great of course) with an expensive cover

    and maybe this isn't really the place to discuss the price (though I think most of the stuff is overpriced), but consider what you get back from LSI when you buy their camera's: this whole community, competitions, lomohomes,... (thanks by the way!)

    and last but not least I agree with what zulupt said :-)
