It’s inexpensive, made of plastic, and it takes awesome pictures!
This Lomo camera is wonderful to use. It’s small enough to put in your bag and it’s light because it’s made of plastic. If you’re a new to Lomography, this is one of the camera’s I’d recommend that you start with. This is also for those who prefer using 35mm film (which is more available in the market) rather than the 120 medium format ones. It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and the vignettes it produces are awesome.
One of the few cons this camera is that you can’t use a Colorsplash flash on it. That particular flash interferes with the wind knob so you have to find an alternative flash—like the 15B which was tall enough not to hit it.
Another thing you have to remember when using this camera is to focus and aim higher at your subject. What you see in the viewfinder may not be the same shot that you’d get on film. Also, if you ever want to use the bulb mode of this camera, I’d suggest you mount it on a tripod and use a cable release for it.
