The LC-A and LC-A+ are automatic. They depend on how the light enters over the exposure meter. Where’s that? See that little knob of ISO setting you twist before you decide on under-or-overexposing? That little hole you see is the exposure or light meter. It is automatic, depending on the available light your LC-A gets on the environment.
Now here’s the trick.
Place it on ISO 25. (or 100 ISO if LC-A+). It has now the smallest hole.
Place your finger to cover that little hole you see in front. Best yet, grab a black tape and stick it over the exposure meter in the front.
Place your LC-A in a tripod (if you don’t have one, place it in a flat surface).
Press the shutter button; hold it steady as long as you like.
Now, you have that bulb mode in your LC-A: perfect for night shots and so on!

Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
