LC-A Big Book Chapter 84: Easy and Spot On Program Exposure

The small light meter on the top right of the camera measures the outside light, then the corresponding shutter speed and aperture combination is selected; for indoor and outdoor shots, day, night, anytime.

With its automatic exposure setting, the LOMO LC-A+ selects the aperture and exposure time automatically. The small light meter on the top right of the camera measures the outside light, then the corresponding shutter speed and aperture combination is selected; for indoor and outdoor shots, day, night, anytime. In very bright conditions, the LOMO LC-A+ can fire off a shot at the speed of 1/500 of a second whereas in low light scenes, it leaves the lens open, exposing the film for up to 2 minutes or longer. In this instance, you must be aware that the LOMO LC-A+ is, like any other camera, sensitive to shakes and movements while exposing. If you manage to stay absolutely still, holding the camera in your hand could result in super-sharp images; perhaps easier to create are the quintessential Lomographs with soft, blurry images and lightstreaks. However, if you want to create a crystal clear long exposure, we recommend that you put the camera on a steady object like a table, chair, wail or a tripod to be on the safe side. Don’t forget to switch to the appropriate ISO setting on your camera for perfect exposures to match your film speed.
