Review: Get Wet With the LC-A+ Krab!

Living in Texas, there's only one surefire way to beat the heat: go swimming. I'm always heading to the lake with my friends, so I could not wait to finally get my hands on the LC-A+ Krab and start snapping away!

The first adventure with my Krab was to my lakehouse on Lake Buchanan. The LC-A+ fits in the case easily and perfectly, and don’t worry about any chance of water getting in. The case has a very strong seal that you have to manually twist to close, and it even requires you to push down on a lever before you twist it in order to prevent the case from accidentally opening. There is a plastic hole in the back of the case that lines up nicely with the viewfinder, but if you don’t want to use that then you can use the included Krab viewfinder that sits on top of the case. Also, if you drop the Krab while in the water, it doesn’t sink! The air inside the case allows it to float on the water surface.

As shown in the pictures above, X-PRO film looks great. I haven’t experienced any drop in picture quality with the Krab. My one real complaint is that you can’t change the focal distance of the LC-A+ without opening the case. Therefore, when you’re putting your camera in the case, set it to the distance that you think you will be using most because once you’re in the water you don’t want to have to risk opening the case to change the focal distance.

I recommend the LC-A+ Krab underwater housing to any lomography and swimming enthusiast. It takes great pictures and most importantly keeps your gear dry. Where will you take your Krab? Feel free to ask me any questions, and LOMO ON!

    Love the Krab! Got it as birthday gift recently. The fact that it floats makes it really handy! I agree with you in regards on changing focal distance. Other than that the Krab makes a day to the pool awesome. :)
