    Compact rangefinder, red shutter button..... Hmmmmm. I now vote that it's a new version of this:

    Lomo clones another clone? Us rangefinder fans have our fingers crossed!

    LC-A 3+ MF!
    Close up, normal & wide angle lens selector & multi frames capable!

  13. bcartwright
    bcartwright ·

    I doubt that it'll be branded LC-A. My guess? Classic camera body tweaked for a modern crowd with a new hip name. A la, the Sprocket Rocket or Spinner. You only wheel out the original name if you are rereleasing a camera that collectively fills the toy cam community with warm fuzzies and nostalgia. Names like Fujipet, Hawkeye or even Wai Wai.

    FF = Full frame HF = Half Frame S? I don't know.. Square format maybe :D

    On the photos of parts Four+Five you could definitely see a modified LC-A+. So the new camera is a LC-A + +?! :O

  17. kribbzor

    Why not a microscope lens camera.
    One normal, one zoom and one macro? 3 in 1, close and far.

  18. superlighter

    oh yes! a new LCA+ with Half Frame option + a close up and wide angle tunnel lenses that slide in front of the Minitar 1...maybe!

    A camera with Full frame & half frame capabilities, lens that can take closed up shots like macro settings and zoom settings.... completed with automatic exposures...

    New LC-A with a wider angle lens and a full frame and half frame switch!?!

  36. stipley
    stipley ·

    Half/square/full frames (maybe the s is sprockets) - Either way, my old LC-A is so damaged he needs to retire. We have had 11 great years together.... and just in time I see (maybe)

  37. kamalfaiz91
    kamalfaiz91 ·

    oke. LCA+ with half frame. i said it is LCA+ coz that is the LCA's base plate. :)

    Looks like a super LC-A with extra frame size features and zoomy lens. LC-Z (lomo compact zoom)? LC-X (lomo compact xtra-awesome)? LC-A2?

    A new back for the Lubitel 166+?????????????

  44. fornoise
    fornoise ·

    It's definitely a new LC-a. It's already been said that it is a camera and not an accessory. The half frame/full frame idea seems realistic, but I think there's more functions, dealing with zoom. I'd love to buy this, but I'm sure it's going to cost a fortune. I want to find out how to get one with a discount/free.

  45. le_ors

    LC-A with a new format, this is getting greater everyday!

    i have this crazy idea that maybe it's a camera? :)

    any type, i'm excited. i can't concentrate in school because i feel the need to just spend the money that i don't have on new cameras that i love.

    thank you for my addiction, Lomography.

  50. gvelasco

    That's clearly the bottom of an LC-A+. A half-frame mod actually isn't that difficult. The problem is that a 32mm lens becomes "normal" when you're shooting half-frame. The half-frame mask would be covering the parts of the picture that vignette. Very interesting, but I'll have to see what other features it has before I get too excited.

  51. natalieerachel
    natalieerachel ·

    Hrmm if FF/S means full frame and square...does that mean that the new LC-A+ will have only square? How strange...I'm excited to see!

  82. alditooh
    alditooh ·

    it's definitely brand new LC-A! with half frame, wide lens feature, and macro lens,
    as you can see from the body, film counter window, and the characteristic of the picture on the clue,
    it can't be other cameras, as for now, just guess the name of the product,
    maybe the lucky ones would get it for free if it's correct! :))

    i'm guessing : LC-A 3in1 :)

  83. simonjamesonweston
