My Favorite Camera.

If you were to ask me what my favorite camera was, I’d tell you my Lomo LC-A. This one above. Period.

I own a handful of cameras, all of which serve a purpose and that I thoroughly enjoy using, but this Lomo is my favorite. Sure, I run into sporadic film advancing issue and it feels like it could break at any moment, but still. This thing fits in my back pocket, so it goes with me most places.

More times than not, I have Provia 400 film in it. If not that, some kind of Portra.

This camera technically falls into the “toy camera” category, but that shouldn’t deter you from taking this thing serious. It takes great pictures. At the very least, it has a glass lens. The “zone focus” might be a bit intimidating at first, but you will get the hang of it pretty quick.

That’s it. It’s awesome.

  1. I’d really like to pick one of these up, I’ve been scanning ebay and it seems to be a bit of a crap shoot. Half of the lc-a’s listed seem to be knock offs that are being made today. They’ve got an image of a little dude on the viewfinder cover… Anyways, any advice on a reliable source to find one of these? Or something comparable that’ll fit in my back pocket? I guess I’m just a little scarred of buying a used one from the bay for 100+ and having it not function properly.
