The Beautiful Lubitel 166+

When people get to see the photos of themselves taken by <a href="http://shop.lomography.com/cameras/russian-cameras/lomo-lubitel-166" target="=blank">LOMO Lubitel 166+</a>, they are all surprised by the quality of the pictures. Lubitel 166+ is really so good at taking snapshots that everyone speaks in praise of it.

I really love Lubitel 166+ . Not only the camera itself is a beauty, the photos taken by it are also astonishingly good.

A lot of people did not realize that it is a camera. Elder people thought it was a radio. Young people, most of them have only used a digital camera, never ever saw a Lubitel 166+ before, and therefore could not even guess what it is. Fewer and fewer people are using analogue camera. There are even fewer cameras that can shoot at waist level. People are usually not aware that they were the object of photos taken by my Lubitel 166+. They did not even know that I was focusing, considering the compositions, and the sound of the shutter is so low that I can barely hear it myself. They were not aware of all the above until they saw the photos themselves. They are all surprised by the quality of the pictures. Lubitel 166+ is really so good at taking snapshots that everyone speaks in praise of it.

Lubitel 166+ has many functions, allows you to shoot using both medium format 120 films and 35mm films and capable of taking vertically shot pictures with sprocket holes. Lubitel 166+ is good at shooting both close-ups shots and distance objects, and I am still trying out its other functionality.

I really love Lubitel 166+ and am so glad that I have it. The “bokeh” (out-of-focus blur) of Lubitel 166+ is so charming. Once I have carelessly not close the lid well, but the photos were surprisingly good with the traces of lightleak. Another reason why I love Lubitel 166+ so much is its light weight, it will not be a burden to carry because its plastic camera body much reduces its weight. It is easier to carry and to hold steadily while shooting.

I need not to say more as I am now taking my Lubitel 166+with me, ready to take some photos. I show my love to Lubitel 166+ by using it to take more and more pictures.
