We all know what the classic LC-A looks like. Some of us even had it inked on their skin -- that’s proof of how iconic the camera is. This well-loved camera even has other models and versions that commemorate different events in the company’s history.
25th Anniversary Edition
A milestone in Lomography’s history, the LC-A’s 25th birthday is surely a must-not-miss event. This edition is all dolled up in a rich textured black leather and a golden anniversary emblem at the back. All cameras from this edition came with a Russian Minitar-1 lens and a special wooden box.
The “Pharaoh” Edition
Definitely a keeper in any collector’s stash. This copper-encrusted LC-A+ was a limited edition run of only 50 pieces. It’s an artwork all in itself.
The LC-A "Silver Lake" Edition
A downright classy and elegant piece, the LC-A Silver Lake edition celebrates craftsmanship and heritage with its sleek chrome body and genuine leather inserts. This is a limited edition LC-A camera and only 1,000 units were released in the market. It's quite the collection piece and it's worth noting that it has a Russian-made Minitar 1 lens if ever it gets taken out of the display cabinet for a day out in the field.
The LC-A+ White Japan Edition
This one's definitely a head turner -- the White Japan Edition is a special incarnation of the illustrious LC-A camera. Featuring an all-white body and a slew of nifty accessories and packaging, it is an ode to the beauty of "Karesansui" or a traditional Japanese stone garden. Anyone can tell that a great amount of artistry and passion has gone into the making of this one-of-a-kind camera.
LC-A+ Russia Day
Draped in striking red leather and adorned with fertility symbols and other unique markings, the LC-A Russia Day pays homage to the birth of the compact camera we all love. The LC-A camera is indeed rich in history and this is but a fitting tribute to its colorful past and bright future. The Russia Day edition comes with a Russian-made Minitar 1 lens and only 2,000 units were made.
“No Nukes” Edition
Protesting nuclear war is one thing the Lomographic Society stands by and this edition is proof. This LC-A+ was designed by the Lomography Embassy store in Korea. It has a special leather skin with a “No Nukes” logo stamping and only 500 units were released.
Elegantly gilded and carefully engraved, this special of most special editions comes with a unique number and certification sheet for authenticity. The package also comes with 2 rolls of Lomography 800 film, a Lomographiere hardcover book and a special wooden box. Only 130 units were made.
