Oh lovely vintage LC-A, how I want you!
When I became interested in analog photography, I started reading everything I could find, as the Internet is a good tool for learning. Among that information, I found the site lomography.com.
I loved all the cameras, but it was impossible to get a camera at that time as a student without money. Some years later I purchased one, which came closest to the mother of this new movement, the Colorsplash. But I wanted to put my hands on that famous Lomo LC-A (1984). The only one looked without much plastic as the others cameras and with more options than the N and B to the exposure speed.
A friend told me that she received a beautiful LC-A Refurbished like birthday present. I waited a few months to borrow his camera for a few days to test. Finally, my friend lent it to me.
My first thought when I had it in my hands was, “How wonderful is this little iron thing!!!” I started reading about it, as I had never held a compact camera with aperture priority. The Russian lens with f2.8 was very generous to be so small. When I developed my first roll I was very surprised, I was very pleased with what I got, although I was very excited to use the MX option I had seen, but the original LC-A doesn’t have it. Well then I knew that there was a new LC-A + (2006).
Now I’m waiting for new stock in LSI Shop…How I want this camera!!!
