Lomopedia: BelOMO Vilia

The Vilia is a 35mm camera produced between 1973 and 1986 by BelOMO, a former Soviet optical company based in Minsk, Belarus.

A simple and virtually fuss-free camera, the Vilia possesses an excellent high-contrast glass lens, a leaf-type shutter, plus multiple aperture and shutter speed settings that you can manually control. Aesthetically speaking, the Vilia’s design is somewhat similar to Smena Symbol. During its production, only around 2,000,000 units have been produced.

Technical Specifications:

  • Film format: 35mm
  • Lens: Triplet 69-3 40mm f/4 Lens
  • Focal range: 0.8m to infinity
  • Shutter speed: B, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250
  • Aperture: f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, f/16
  • Flash: Standard hot shoe

    I love this camera. If you look past the bulkiness, you'll have a blast with it. Manual settings, sharp lens, durable even under extreme cold conditions. Plus it's a steal considering the price. I'd recommend it easily!
