Lubitel +166Lomography 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.

You sure they got the decimal point in the right place the old Lubitel was about 15 with 5 rolls of film, cable release and a light meter.

I agree with the first comment. That's some price hike ! You can buy a good quality second - hand TLR for a lot less than that !

Pricing like that isn't going to do much to help revive interest in film!

Just had look at the lomo website and it seems they've increased all of their prices to daft levels. Shame as it was a good way to play with photography without breaking the bank.
