    I am very confused now- could anyone tell me ?
    City slicker is plastic body all over - right
    Jetsetter is metal or plastic?
    Globetrotter is metal.
    What about the panel where the lens attaches and shutter button is. metal or plastic?
    and the lens itself - plastic or glass?

    i´d still like to know the weight of the cameras. on the pics the cam looks pretty big and so plastic body and metal body might make a big difference.

    @bloomchen I was wondering the same thing regarding the weight
    @andrus_n to answer a couple of your questions, I think it's safe to assume that the entire body of the cityslicker is plastic.
    the jetsetter is metal - same as globetrotter just with different leather band.
    also, the shutter lever appears to be metal on all of the cameras

    Where is the B setting on the camera? On the bottom? And what is the other option? A from automatic...?

    I read yesterday that someone thought the City slicker had a plastic body. Thanks for the confirmation.

    is it real leather???? :(

    @andrus_n : the lenses are plastic lenses... "Includes an expertly crafted set of plastic optics: a 90mm wide-angle lens and an ultra-wide 58mm lens."
    Also, I wonder if the body of the Jetsetter & Globetrotter are made of metal (like the metal edition of LaSardina for example, which is very heavy), or if it looks like metal but in plastic or aluminium material... This is an issue. And so the maximum aperture :(

    @diaralicious - yes it is real leather. In case of the Globetrotter it is a snake-style pattern.
    @bloomchen the City slicker comes in at approx 450g whilst the Globetrotter and Jetsetter at around 500g. This does not include batteries or film.
    @saidseni, the B setting can be found on the inside of the front panel.
    @andrus_n Jetsettter is metal. About the panel, it's both actually.

    Hope this helps.

    Any option for a remote shutter release?

    what kind of flash which can be fit for this cam. Anyone could help me to list down some of flashes? :)

    I really am sad that lomography keeps using leather in their products. I'd love to buy this in metal, but I don't want a cow to have suffered for my art form.

    @webo29 can you shoot different formats in a single roll? or you can't change formats when it is still loaded?

  18. webo29

    @walasiteodito you can find the answer to your question (and others you might have in the FAQ www.lomography.it/about/faq/camera+belair

    @nkhoa93 Any hot shoe flash. Take your pick from the Diana F+ Flash, Ringflash, Colorsplash.... You're spoilt for choice. Flashes can be found in this section: shop.lomography.com/accessories/camera-accessories

    @cmgawthorp93: I love everything about animals, but I don't think, that any cow will die or suffer for this camera. It's just like using the skin of less then 0.001 % of what will become a steak anyway ... unfortunately though, of course.
    I am much more concerned of the fact, that this camera does not have a rangefinder. A zone focus on a medium format camera ... well ...
