Engagement Photoshoot with the Lubitel 166+

On the occasion of our pre-wedding photo shoot, we took our Lubitel 166+ for a walk. It was amazing to be able to use it during such an incredible occasion. Read on to know more about the photo shoot and this amazing camera.

It was a beautiful sunny day and a perfect location in the Santa Pola Salt Flats in Alicante. It included great atmosphere and the Lubitel 166+… what else? It was such a relaxing moment that I felt the need to take some pics in order to have more memories of such a fantastic day.
Here I share with you some of the photos I took that day.

I loaded it with a Kodak Portra 160 NC with which I got very defined results thanks to its fine and sharp grain along with colours that pleasantly surprised me. Take into account that this is a 160 ISO film, so with this camera you will have to set either a higher or lower ISO.

As you all know, and for those who don’t know it yet, the Lubitel 166+ can shoot with both 120 mm and 35 mm films, thanks to the Lubikin that comes with it. That must be set before loading the film. It also comes with a massively improved viewfinder, zone focusing and a standard hot-shoe. This is a camera that doesn’t leave anyone indifferent.

Here you have some of its features in case you want to know more about the Lubitel 166+":

  • Aperture: from f/4.5 to f/22
  • Colour: black
  • Flash connection: hot-shoe
  • Focusing: Ground Glass Focusing
  • Focal length: 0.8m – Inf.
  • Frame counter: Auto Frame Counter
  • Tripod Mount: Yes
  • Viewfinder: Twin-lens reflex viewfinder
  • Cable Release Connection: Yes

Now I have to wait for the digital results.
