These look so cool. In fact, I can’t decide which of the 25th anniversary Lomo LC-A cameras to go for. Read more
With so many variations on the same thing, it’s nice to see something new from Lomography. Although the new LC-Wide is actually a new take on the first-ever Lomo, the LC-A.
It’s a more versatile model than that cult classic, now with a specially-developed ultra-wide-angle 17 mm Minigon glass lens and the option to take snaps in full, square or half-format, the last of those offering 72 shots on a roll of 36-shot film if you want test out your skills. Yes film, like all the Lomo range. Of course, the ultra-wide-angle lens means you can also opt for some panoramic shots too for the bigger picture.
If you want the full technical breakdown, check out the website for that. Indeed, it’s only available to buy online and in limited numbers right now. £349 is the price.

We have featured the Lomo LC-A+, not least when it celebrated 25 years last year. Well, it’s 26 this year and the camera that started the whole Lomography thing off is back as the Lomo LC-A+ White.
It’s quite a package too. This Soviet-era 35mm camera still has that Russian Minitar 1 f/2.8 32mm lens, but this time comes with a white camera body with white leather detailing that’s ‘inspired by a Japanese garden’. There’s also a multiple exposure switch for easy, real-time double-exposure, expanded film ISO settings from 100 to 1600, a cable release thread for shake-free night-time and indoor shooting and a hot shoe for external flash.
Oh yes, there’s also a cool matching white case and the option to upgrade to allsorts of extras, some of which are pictured over the page. Only 1,000 worldwide, it’s priced at £379.
