Lomography as usual … got people all excited about a ‘mystery’ product and finally here it is … the Lomo LC-Wide. Seem that the classic LC-A+ has ‘mutated’ into something a lot different … boasting a newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens … allows shooting in full frame, square as well as half frame formats.

I was wondering what the two red parts are for and after a while … it seems that they are just part of the design. Not some buttons that you can press. Is that right or am I wrong? 😀

Focusing range is from 0.4m to infinity. Honestly … that got me interested in this camera is the 17mm wide lens. I don’t really care much for shooting square format (in 35mm) or half frames. It comes with 2 rolls of film … which is nothing really exciting but look at the the cans that the film comes in … looks cool!

Listed at US$382.60 … *cough* … do I want one? I don’t know. I’m broke now after some recent shopping. 🙁 I can see Jimmy/Cindy from ThirtySix coming in to comment ‘We’ve reserved one for you!’. I am afraid … very afraid.

  7. I think the wide lens is awesome. I always dislike the hassle of putting on the wide angle lens on my lca+. My prayer has been answered. But I’m broke too. Lol
