Lomo’s latest camera is expensive, impractical and uses 120 film
One of the great benefits of shooting with 120 film is that not only will they enlarge with much less graininess, but there’s also a much bigger depth of field. We’re not sure either of those considerations will necessarily apply to the
hipsters with more money than sense amateur photographers with an eye on Lomography’s latest casual snapper, the Lomo LC-A 120. Much like the company’s 30mm Lomo camera, the LC-A is a “toy” film camera that encourages casual snapping of landscapes and the like. If your jeans are skinny, your beard is crimped to an inch of its life and you’ve got $430 lying around, then you can get your hands on one of these in November.
Correction: This story previously stated that Lomo’s new camera takes 120mm film. It actually takes 120 film, a medium-format film.
Steve Dent put on an jumper from the 1970s to take the photos for this report.
