Lubikin 35mm Magic

For many Lubitel+ devotees, the camera’s 35mm ability is their most treasured characteristic. We owe this newly found glory to a little set of plastic pieces called the “Lubikin” Named after the treasured “Rolleikin” set for Rolleiflex TLR cameras, the Lubikin efficiently transforms your Lubitel into a multi-format snapshot machine. Here’s some tasty details and a brief video that shows how the whole shebang works.

Lubitel+ New Features

Just in case you haven’t had a chance to be formally introduced, here’s a little recap of what makes the Lubitel+ so deeply satisfying. We’ve built a prince’s ransom of improvements into the basic Lubitel design. As Lubitel devotees for countless years, we had a few “pet peeves” that we wanted to change. Here’s the bigger and the better:

  • Four Film Formats*
  • Square 120 (6×6): The all-time Lubitel classic. 12 shots on one roll
  • Rectangular 120 (6×4.5): 16 lovely landscape images on one roll
  • Endless Panorama 120: An unlimited amount of consecutive frames
  • 35mm Portrait Panoramic (58×24): panoramic portraits where the image exposes the entire film – including the sprocket holes!

Improved Viewfinder

The Lubitel+’s viewfinder glass is perfectly flat ground glass and covers 100% of the image. The original viewfinder used curved glass, was a bit tough to see in any angle other than head-on, and only covered 80% of the image.

Closer Focus & Zone Focus

The Lubitel+ lens focuses to 0.8m, while the classic Lubitel lens only focused to 1.4m. This means stronger and more intense portraits and close-up shots! The Lubitel+ also features a easy zone focus mode which snaps to the familiar LC-A+ distance settings of 0.8m, 1.5m, 3m, and infinity (allowing you to truly “be fast”).

Standard Hotshoe

Sync any standard hotshoe flash – including the Colorsplash flash or Diana Flash – perfectly with your camera.

Rewind Your 120 Rolls

With the Lubitel+, you can rewind your film before the end of the roll. This allows you to trade film rolls with a mate rewind to a past frame and shoot on it again. This is one of the only medium format cameras in the world that can do this!

On Camera Exposure Guides

Setting the manual exposure of the Lubitel just got a lot easier with the help of two handy exposure guides (one aperture-priority, one shutter-priority) printed right onto your camera.
