LC-Wide: My Perfect Lover

If you have an LC-A already, why would you still want the LC-Wide? Let me tell you the story of how the LC-Wide became my perfect lover.

My very first self-portrait taken using the LC-Wide.

The LC-A has always my best friend ever since he came into my life. We walked and passed by the busy streets of Hong Kong, climbed the windy Broga Hill, visited Hangzhou in winter, and spent a boring, routinary, daily life together. I would say, my LC-A is not just a camera to me, it completes me. I never will leave my LC-A alone when I’m going for a walk or travel. It never will be the same to go out without him. Sounds crazy? I think there will be someone out there who will totally agree with me.

Ever since LC-Wide was launched in May 2011, I’ve always wanted to grab one for myself. The tempting wide angle is something irresistible for a girl like me, who loves self-shooting. Oops! But my financial funds are meant to be for something more important in life in the meantime, so I stopped myself from getting it immediately. But this didn’t stop me from, trying out the camera. I borrowed from a friend of mine instead. Thanks to him, I was able to bring the LC-Wide around, and see the world in a wider perspective. And after testing a few rolls, I can’t help but get one for myself.

It has the similar cool, solid look as the LC-A, candid and light-weight, fitting perfectly even into girls’ small handbags, as well as guys’ pants pockets! I then brought the LC-Wide around for a few months. The first few rolls totally blew me off. I’m speechless. Sounds crazy again? Those who have the LC-Wide understands what I mean, I assume. Some said the price might be a bit expensive, but honestly, it’s worth every penny!

Looking cool like the classic LC-A, it even has 3 different formats! You can shoot as normal, as well as the newly added features, the square format and the half frame format! Being a user of the classic LC-A, there wasn’t any MX feature but now, I can MX with the LC-Wide!

I enjoyed shooting with different formats and functions with such a wide lens. Now, it really completed my life! But anyway, I will never leave my LC-A alone at home still, because it means even more than just the functions and features or taking good pictures.

So, the LC-A would still be my best buddy, and LC-Wide is my perfect lover. Both of them share the best moments in my life. Those, very close to the heart moments.

Well, Lomo-outing together, anyone?
