Painterly Clouds

Landscapes don't always have to focus on the terrain itself. Shoot for the stars and point the Lubitel 166+ skywards. Capture rich cloud formations, beautiful sunsets and capture the anything-is-possible feeling that the wide-open universe gives you. Experiment with the Lubitel's various manual apertures (f4.5, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, and f22) and shutter speeds (1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, and Bulb) to get just the right amount of light in your picture — whether it’s dusky skies at 5am or brilliant sunshine in the afternoon.

Sublime Flatlands

Follow the horizon with your camera and encompass the natural details that a seashore, a farm field or a straight plain has to offer. Shooting flatlands creates a gorgeous harmony of composition in your shot, meaning that you can include plenty of elements while retaining balance and simplicity in your frame. The Lubitel 166+ has an intuitive and versatile zone-focusing system that captures super sharp shots at 0.8 m, 1.5 m, 4 m and infinity with ease. It’s a medium-format camera that’s wide enough to capture all the details.
