Week 27 – LOMO LC-A

The LOMO Kompact Automat (LC-A) was produced in St Petersburg from 1984 to 2005. It's a pocket sized 35mm viewfinder camera with zone focus and automatic exposure.

It's the camera at the heart of the Lomographic Society, and a Chinese copy is still available from them. My example is a genuine Russian model found on eBay.

I've run two rolls of film through it while on vacation these last two weeks, one color and one black and white.

Want one? You can still buy new versions from Lomography, or you can haunt eBay for a bargain like I did.
