Recently I purchased a Lomo LC-A+. What is it you may ask? It is a copy of a Russian compact 35mm autoexposure camera.
What is big idea? It has a sharp 2.8 wide angle lens. It is very small which is great for candid and street photography. It has preset focusing points and autoexposure. The lens tends to vignette edges and colors are saturated.
I did not purchase the original because of extra features such as ISO settings up to 1600 and double exposure setting. I did not know what I was getting into when I opened the box. You will just have to order one and see what I mean.
So in the digital age, if you want to go old school with film again and want to make photography fun get one of these little cameras. It is quite an experience waiting on film to process and seeing what moments you capture.
