Shooting Summer Squares with the LC-A 120 Camera


Good days are up ahead, so take advantage of the summer sun heating up all the glorious colors out there. If you're a medium-format fan, you're probably very excited about shooting portraits and scenic scenes. While medium-format photos are truly classic, traditional 120 cameras can be quite challenging to take with you on vacation: hey need extra space and require careful handling if you're moving from one spot to another. If you're looking for something that is practical, easy-to-use, and travel-friendly — the Lomo LC-A 120 will surely sweep you off your feet this summer.

As the name suggests, the Lomo LC-A 120 is a Lomo LC-A+ reimagined as a medium-format camera. If you're new to the Lomo LC-A+, it's the camera that sparked the Lomography movement. It's loved for its compact size and signature “Lomo look”: punchy colors, deep contrast and saturation, and dramatic vignetting.

The Lomo LC-A 120’s zone-focusing feature means you don’t have to fiddle with focus settings, and the multiple and long exposure modes, cable release, and tripod thread make it easy to shoot in all kinds of different light settings. Top it all off with a wide-angle premium-glass lens and automatic exposure, and there you have it — a compact 120 camera that you can take along with you anywhere.
