My favorite 35mm camera (after the LC-A), the beloved BeLomo Vilia, broke. The shutter jammed open. After some failed experiments using the lens cap as a shutter I realised I needed to do something about it. It was cheaper to buy a new one off ebay than get it fixed so that's what I did. The P&P cost more than the camera! I honestly don't think you can get a better bargain than this great camera with a fantastic lens, for £5! This was the first test roll with it, on a family day out. It even produced a couple of great light leaks. Happy days.
