Upgrade for the Lubitel - The Lubitel camera is given a new lease of life with new features that improve the seventies classic.
Lomography have released an upgrade for the Lubitel. First designed in the seventies the new camera called the Lubitel +166, looks like the old camera with a few modern upgrades.
You can easily convert the new Lubitel into a 35mm camera with the Lubikin set and you can also make a stream of images with no space between frames- which means you can create a panoramic image.
The viewfinder glass is perfectly flat ground glass which covers the entire image an improvement on the original which only covered 80% of the picture. The new lens also gives you a closer focus of 0.8m. This means your portraits and close-ups will be a lot stronger.
Exposure guides, a standard hotshoe and the ability to rewind your film before you reach the end of the roll are all great functions that are featured on the new camera.
The body is still made out of plastic and the camera still has a waist-level viewfinder.
The Lubitel 166+, cable release and five rolls of film costs £252.36 and can be purchased from the Lomography shop.
