Since you are a film camera fanatic, why LC-A+ is your favorite among all?
LC-A+ is really easy to use and convenient to carry around. Small in size and LC-A+ to me it’s really a very unique camera. Besides that , LC-A+ have this MX (multiple exposure) which is really fun to use and expand our creativity! Besides, I really love adapting the wide angle lens on my LC-A+ because it can capture s scene in wider and different angle!

Describe the LC-A+ in 5 words.
Never get bored with LC-A+.

Which of your own Lomographic shot taken by LC-A+ is your favorite and why?
I really like this picture taken by LC-A+ because I think it is really romantic as well as love and affection element inside the picture.
