WHERE IS THE SPEED? Probably some of us are satisfied with the LC-A+ (hell yeah, its another form of satisfaction) but I get quite irritated with over exposed or under exposed result swhen taking pictures with this honorable player. When you use flash, it always burns your subject’s skin tone or any still life objects. This is quite problematic for having appropriate exposure. But after some trial and error, I think we can trick the shutter speed of the LC-A+ (hohoho)!
I will go with a comparison between my shots using the Lomo LC-A+ with studio lighting, strobe lights, and lomo flash.
These shots were taken using Fuji Pro Plus 100, expired in 2008:
These shots were taken using Lucky SHD 100, fresh:
These shots were taken using Kodak Supra 400, expired 2005:
How do we trick the speed on Lomo LC-A+, especially for the flash and strobe lovers?
The trick is to play with the ASA/ISO lever of the LC-A+. Apparently, every ASA/ISO is connected with certain shutter speeds and the LC-A+’s aperture: the higher the ASA/ISO, the faster the speed, and the lower it is, slower the speed gets. Finally, to do bulb, you just need to cover the light sensor (litlle round glass above ASA/ISO lever gear).
Oh yeah, one more thing: if you are using slide film, just remember the contrast and saturation level will increase, especially when you put fill in flash. Hope my sharing could be helpfull
As usual, just have fun, you never know what you get!
