Lubitel love is simply powered by gears, cranks, springs, and a little bit of your affection.
The Lubitel+ requires a slow hand and an easy touch. Somebody who will spend some time. Not go and shoot in a heated rush. Each shot requires an aperture setting, a shutter setting, and a focus setting. Embrace all the little dials and knobs, and throttle down a bit. Take advantage of that big, shining focus screen and compose your shot. Move your subject into the perfect position and have them cock their head just right. Plan out each little bit and savor every single moment. In a world that’s (for the most part) relentlessly digital and hopelessly point and shoot, it’s a wonderful experience to swipe against the grain with a small clockwork analog machine that needs no batteries, LCD screens, or “focus lock confirmations.” Lubitel love is simply powered by gears, cranks, springs, and a little bit of your affection.
