Landscape Love With Your Lubitel 166+

The Great Twin-Lensed Escape: Take some breathtaking landscapes and make those scenic places from your trips come alive!

The Great Twin-Lensed Escape

Winter is over and it is time to get away from the limits of indoor photography! Escape with your Lubitel 166+ for some fresh air and breathtaking landscapes. Nature scenes and urban cityscapes come alive with this twin-lensed reflex camera. Plus the joys of medium format make for a magical landscape shoot perfectly framed in a square.

Lubitel 166+ for Amazing Landscapes

What makes the Lubitel 166+ a good choice for landscapes? Our version of the classic Lubitel camera offers you helpful options to capture that perfect shot!

  • Improved Viewfinder – Preview 100% of your image easily with the flat ground glass. A good improvement from the original Lubitel’s curved glass, which only covered 80% of the image.
  • Zone focus – No need to fuss with distance settings! This feature allows you to pick from 0.8m, 1.5m, 3m, and infinity with great ease.
  • Rewind your rolls – Get creative with multiple exposures! Frame by frame you can rewind so that you could shoot over your first shot. Better yet, collaborate with a friend and swap film rolls!

The Best Film Picks

With the Lubitel 166+, rest assured that your landscapes are picture-perfect, but choosing the right film is essential, too! And should you be feeling adventurous, don’t forget. You can load with 35mm film in the Lubitel 166+ for extra fun, it was made for it!

Black & White – Go for the old timey feel with the classic black and white emulsion.

Colour Negatives – Excellent colour, natural saturation. For a retro look, go for lower ISO.

Slide film – Extra doses of colour, and a kick of saturation and contrast gives an overall offbeat appeal to your landscapes!

Meet Lubitel 166+ Amigo Ryan Schude

Ryan Schude is well known for his photography style of elaborate set ups and planned shots. Working with the Lubitel he says is a total departure from this and he enjoys the, “return to something from the past.” Schude says of the Lubitel 166+, “the imperfections become part of the charm at times and certain happy accidents emerge to create images I would have never made otherwise."
