LC-A Refurbished: Can't Get My Hands Off You!

6

LCA is the camera i bring out everyday. The day without LCA in my bag i will feel weird, it is already part of my life. When i first join lomography, i bought a fisheye and a colorsplash. But as time goes by, i realized more and more people are using lomo LCA, and I asked, "What so great about this camera?", and i found out the reason very soon as i browse through other lomographer's lomohome. I found that the picture that taken by LCA are saturated in color and it is very contrast, and that is what I'm looking for.

From the moments onwards, i desperately want a LCA as my snap shot camera. I log in to lomography shop to buy the LCA and i found that the money i have is not enough for me to get a LCA+. Therefore i decided to buy LCA-refurbished instead.

I was so excited when i got the LCA because it is equipped with the sexiest USSR made Minitar 32mm Lens. I feel extremely comfortable when i hold it in my hand because it is very compact in size and it has more function. LCA has the extra function to set the desire aperture and i really love it!

I’ve tried LCA with many different types of 35mm slide film or negative film and the result that i obtained are superb! The first roll of film that i feed my LCA is the Kodak Elitechrome as the testing roll, i was so happy to see the result of my first roll and i’ve set some picture as the lomohome key image. After one week, i got the LOMOHOME OF THE DAY award. I totally cannot believe it, and I believe the LCA brings me luck as well. This makes me love my LCA-Refurbished more.

In my opinion LCA is suitable to shoot in any types of condition even in indoor, the color will turn out nicely and proper expose if you hold the shutter until you hear the second click. The picture taken by LCA will always surprise me. Some of the picture even get award from lomography.com through the competitions. One of the reasons that i love LCA is because of the 4 distance setting. It is easy and fast when come to snap shot and it enables me to focus the object that i want to capture. With the F/2.8 Minitar lens, I’m able to capture a nice image with shallow depth of view when i set the distance to 0.8m and use F/2.8.

I think every lomographer must have a LCA in their bag. If you don’t have enough money to go for LCA+, LCA-Refurbished will definitely be your best choice!

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.

    Hands-on Experience with the Lomo'Instant

    What I got is the Lomo'Instant Black Edition. Its texture and finish is quite simple, and could work as creative space for someone who's into DIY and decorations. In terms of form, it is very handy and acceptable in size. I also love the camera strap that makes it easy to carry.
