The famous vignette of the LOMO LC-A's images was in fact seen as a flaw in the beginnings of its production. The Russian engineers have tried to get rid of it for years, but thankfully, never succeeded. See, because of the handy little size of the LOMO LC-A, the distance between the lens and the film can only be very small.
The famous vignette of the LOMO LC-A’s images was in fact seen as a flaw in the beginnings of its production. The Russian engineers have tried to get rid of it for years, but thankfully, never succeeded. See, because of the handy little size of the LOMO LC-A, the distance between the lens and the film can only be very small. The Minitar 1 is also a very small objective, the angle of projection is bigger than it would be with a larger objective. Because of this large angle, the field of view that is projected onto the film is bigger than the actual film – the light naturally gets weaker on the edges and therefore produces the significant vignette on each image. Got it? Either way, the LOMO LC-A’s vignette is great and if our explanation for it leaves your dumbfounded then just take it as simple a Russian miracle to be thankful for!
