New LOMO Lubitel 166+ Camera

New LOMO Lubitel 166+ Camera

A new and improved version of the Lubitel 166+ camera has been launched by the Austria-based Lomography company. The new features include a 35mm format and endless panorama format, an improved viewfinder and much more.

Shooting with the Lubitel+ is different than anything you have shot before. The combination of its glass lenses, the flexible 120 or 35mm format, fully manual everything, fully automatic nothing, peering into a waist-level finder, slowing things down with focusing and dialing in the correct exposure settings, and a myriad of other analog factors make it a full-bodied experience that activates all of your senses and brings you into a special and very intimate place.

Lubitel+ pictures have their very own look and special analog character. They’re more “professional” than any 35mm camera, but less professional than a Hasselblad. Of course they are sharp, crispy, artistic, painted with light, and grand. But they’re also occasionally random, sometimes too vibrant, often vignetted at the edges, and totally flexible to your wishes and innovative tinkering. Rather than reflecting the objective reality in front of you, they reflect the subjective reality of the Lomographer behind the camera.

The new and improved LOMO Lubitel 166+ camera is available from the official Lomography online shop for $350.

  4. I’m shocked too at the price, I had one of these original cameras many years ago in the UK and it was very cheap.

  5. I agree, it feels a bit price.
