    Anyone know a good source for screws to hold the body/lens cover on a Loma LC-A (not LC-A+)? I pulled mine out of the bag the other day and notice that the screw on the left front side of the lens cover had somehow worked loose. Couldn't find it in the bag, and so need a replacement. The screw is very small, but I'm not sure of the size. I guess another option would be a Lomo LC-A repair manual.

    Any ideas?

    Hiya Shutterpuppy, and welcome :smile:

    I don't know just how small that screw is that you're missing, but I got one for my SLR camera back from a local optometrist which cost me all of nothing. They just went out the back, had a look through their spare screw supplies and found one that matched in size. When I offered to pay, they said not to worry about it. Basically, any place which sells and/or repairs eye glasses should be able to supply you with a screw tiny enough to fit your needs.
