I’ve been wanting to have this camera for a long long time and last month, I finally did it: I bought a Lubitel+ !
I was so excited about this new camera, and I fell in love with it from the very beginning!
At the beginning, I was a bit worried because the camera is totally manual and as I’m still a beginner, I didn’t know if my photos would come out well or not.
But this had a positive consequence: I worked a lot on the settings and now I’m getting better and more confident.
After I saw my first roll, I can say that I was totally happy with the results!
Some of the photos (indoors) came out too dark, but generally, I loved them all.
I mainly loved the format. Square photos are so different, they have something more than 35mm, I wouldn’t be able to explain what, but I love it.
Plus, this roll was also my first home processed roll!
So the excitement was double! :D
Here are the photos from my first roll:
So I would say that the Lubitel is a great camera, easy to use and you’re guaranteed to have beautiful pictures with it, even if you’re not a pro.
Using black and white gives a nostalgic touch, I liked it a lot!
I can’t wait to see what’s on my second roll, Slide film this time! coming soon
