So, you have seen the awesome capabilities of the LC-W but just can’t afford one yet ,and anyway, you already have a fantastic LC-A+ that you love to bits. Then the LC-A+ Wide Angle Lens is exactly what you need in your arsenal.
The LC-A+ has to be one of the best Lomography cameras ever made. It’s compact and light, easy to use, and produces fantastic images thanks to its Minitar 1 lens. Well Imagine taking that 32mm lens and converting it into 20mm, what do you get? A stunning 120˚ view, and even more seductive vignettes.
I took the two images below from the same spot. You can see just what a difference the wide angle makes.
The LC-A+ Wide-Angle Lens is also super easy to attach and remove making it very practical, after all not every shot needs to be wide. It also gives you a chance to get really close to your subject. The minimum focal distance on the LC-A+ is 0.8m but with the wide angle lens attached it becomes 0.35m and to help you learn just how close that is you get a handy tape measure attached to the lens cap!
The LC-A+ Wide Angle lens is the best accessory to the LC-A+ without question in my opinion. The only down side is that with it attached, my LC-A+ wont fit in my Hipshot bag. Lucky for me though both the lens and its hotshoe viewfinder fit perfectly into the Hipshot’s accessory pouch, it just means that I have to take it off before putting it away.
