A great accessory for your Lubitel+ is the Holgon Strobe Flash. Use it in combination with the Lomo cable release, because that gets it fixed when using it. You might need a free hand…!

Load your Lubitel with any film (35mm, 120 or 220 (as redscale, too)), add the flash (be sure to have fresh batteries and set it on MF – (multiflash mode). Darken your room, set your Lubitel on B (bulb mode) and f5.6 (or f8) and start shooting, so you avoid overexposing your shots.

You have two possibilities to shoot.

Regular Longtime.

Make a regular longtime – exposure, let your object move or move your camera. Flash fires automatically when you release two times per second. You’ll have one square shot with your object in different angles and layers, like a regular multiple exposure with lots of flash – fire.

Advance the Film

Make a longtime exposure, but advance your film while the flash shoots and you’re exposing. Do it as long as you want to (the longest endless portrait is 220 or 35mm). You’ll have overlapping shots.
It is big fun for group- portraits. Arrange the group around you in a circle and turn around while shooting.

    good thing about the flash is, that you can use it as single AND strobe flash. and you can change the angle of the flashlight...
    it is working with other cameras, too and you can fire it manual

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
