Welcome My Dear Belair!

Now this is the story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down and I'd like to take a minute just sit right there I'll tell you how I became the lucky owner of Belair!

When Lomography announced a new camera, I decided immediately I should have been one of the first owners: with that retro look and the 30% discount, I just couldn’t resist it! In few minutes, I bought my Belair City Slicker.
“I can’t wait to start shooting with it!” – It was only after a couple of days that, after talking with kingdjin, I realized that I just pre-ordered my Belair and so I should have waited until December…aaah disappointment!

Luckily, I’ve waited less than expected, so when I heard the doorbell announcing “DHL, there’s a package for you”, I rushed to the door. Only after a while I realized I went on the street with my pajamas!

I was so happy, just like a kid unwrapping Christmas presents. My City Slicker is simply wonderful: black, elegant, classy…“l have to try it NOW!” – I kept on repeating myself. Yet, after reading carefully the instructions, I realized that the package contained no batteries, so I waited the following day to test it.

The day after, with the batteries in, I started using my sweet Belair, bothering my father and my little Yoda.

Look how happy I am with my Belair City Slicker!
