    I have THIS camera...

    I've used it with black and white and colour 400 speed film and the results are great! It's cheap, fun and a great conversation piece.

    You can shoot 4 at the same time, 2 up at a time, or all 4 individually... For 4 individuals it can be timed at different speeds or 4 separate fires of the trigger. A great little camera!

    Lomo LC-A

    The Lomo factory in St Petersburg recently ceased production of the Lomo LC-A, so now the Lomographic Society has had to find its' bread and butter elsewhere. You can see the cameras they now sell and the prices :o at the following link.

    Hi Andy, thats the one. Its been a long time, must be around twenty years, as you say the price is unbelievable £173!! I know that in those days the then Soviet Union sold optical equipment at a loss, because they needed western currency to buy grain from the U.S.A. and Canada, and, even allowing for the twenty years, since we sold the camera for £29-99! It seems to me how true what someone I used to know said "Things are worth what you can get for them".

    OK, I don't get it. $60 for the cheap plastic thing. $90 and up for a LC-A. What's the deal? An Olympus MJU goes for about $40.

    A Holga is what, $30? A Yashica GTN about $30?

    I don't get it. All of that just to take bad pictures?
