There is more to the LC-Wide than meets the eye (in the viewfinder)


I’ve only shot a couple of rolls so far and there is definitely more this compact beast can see than the viewfinder will show you. It’s wide, it’s sharp, it’s fast, it’s small and it shoots analogue masterpieces with no fuss.

Yes, the guys at Lomography have been working on this bad boy for some time. It takes a while to fit a 17mm lens with near perfect rectilinear lines into a compact box that fits in your back pocket.

Shooting with it is simply amazing! With only two focus settings and a fully automated shutter you’ll find it hard to miss a moment or end up with a bad shot.

The LC-W is packed with features such as half frame, full frame and square frame as well the m/x switch for multiple exposures. Personally I just love the simplicity of full frame 35mm and occasionally playing around with the m/x switch.

Low-light, slow film = no problem

    I'm in love with it. No doubt. Unfortunately had someone bump into me in Paris and I dropped it... on my second day having it. It still works fine and yes, it's amazing how versatile it is. Haven't tried night shots yet...
