The frankly outrageous prices of Lomo stuff make me weep. £289 for a Lubitel 166+? I paid £30 for a 166U brand new in the mid 1990s and thought that a reasonable price for the fun it gave me. The money they want now is serious MF territory - you can find a working Bronica ETRSi for that much which is light years ahead in image quality and handling. I also worry how many will think that the "Lomo" look is all film is capable of and give up on the whole idea if they don't like the very peculiar results.
There's something I hadn't thought of. I do like the fact that Lomography promotes film use, but yes, if people think those generally crappy pictures are what film does, they may be as harmful as they are helpful. Certainly food for thought.
Moma don't take my Kodachrome away!
Oops, Kodak just did!
