The NEW Lomo Lubitel 166+ Has Arrived!


A Lomography re-invention! The 21st Century Lubitel 166+.

Stop. Look down into the world of the Lubitel+.

We are thrilled to introduce you to the new Lubitel+… the biggest news in years for lovers of authentic analogue photography! Light and compact with stunning new features and improvements, our loving re-creation of the Soviet-era, LOMO Lubitel, Twin Lens Reflex takes analogue photography back to the fundamentals.

The Lubitel+ takes you by the hand and makes a better photographer out of you…

Lubitel+ New and Improved Features

We’ve retained all the well-loved classic features, (like the signature coated glass lens) and added in a swarm of improvements and innovations to set to rights those original Lubitel personality ‘quirks’. Here are the highlights:

Inbuilt 35mm film conversion mechanism – The Lubikin set

*Includes a 35mm mask, film pick-up spool, 35mm film holder and 35mm counter pressure plate.

*Enables sprocket-hole look.

Closer & Broader Focusing

*The Lubitel+ lens focuses to 0.8m, while the classic Lubitel lens only focused to 1.4m. Meaning stronger, more intense portraits & close-up shots!

Improved Milky Viewfinder

*The Lubitel+’s viewfinder glass is perfectly flat glass and covers 100% of the image. The original viewfinder used curved glass, was a bit tough to see in any angle other than head-on, and only covered 80% of the image.

*Split image and microprism.

Standard Hotshoe

*Syncs any standard hotshoe flash – incl. Colorsplash flash & Diana Flash.

Stop Focus mechanism

*New easy zone focus mode with distance settings – 0.8m, 1.5m, 3m & infinity

Rewind your 120 rolls

*With the Lubitel+, you can rewind your film BEFORE the end of the roll. This allows you to rewind to a past frame, shoot on it again, and then even trade film rolls with a mate for double or triple exposures! A rare feature!

Plus other new features: exchangeable back and viewfinder… read more

    I knew it! Looks great! I don't have the money for it though. Will the lubikin system work with other lubitels?

    The lubiken system will NOT work with other Lubitels. Not even close, because the new one has a rewind lever, an unlocking spool advance, and a place for a film guide.
