Contrary to most other cameras and high-tech autofocus models, the LC-A+ allows you to adjust your distance setting in a split second, instead of waiting forever for the autofocus of a digital model to get your desired sharpness.
The zone focusing ability is the most important feature of a snapshot camera and is the mother of true Lomographic hipshooting. Contrary to most other cameras and high-tech autofocus models, the LC-A+ allows you to adjust your distance setting in a split second, instead of waiting forever for the autofocus of a digital model to get your desired sharpness. Just switch the distance lever to one of the four focus points (0.8m, 1.5m, 3m or infinity) and shoot – you don’t even have to look at the meter! It’s so easy; the top setting for close-ups; have the camera about one arm’s length away from your subject; one down for subjects 1.5m away; next one down for subjects 3m away; and the bottom setting for infinity i.e everything further than three meters away. Up, down, up, down, up, down. Once you’ve mastered this, you’re ready for the ultra-fast Lomographic missions and secret shots from the hip.

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
