I picked this up as a cost effective entry into panoramic photography. Initially I went in with some skepticism as the lomo brand doesn't exactly scream precise production, reliable products, or even user safety. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the horizon is head and shoulder above the more familiar holga in quality and functionality. The f-stop and shutter speed dial clicks easily and appears to be accurate. Loading the camera is a bit of a task, but once you get things down, its merely tedious but reliable. The only mechanical/usability issue I had had to do with the film winding. Due to the long "throw" on the film advance lever its important to do it smoothly and ensure that you complete the long motion to ensure that the film is properly advanced. Whipping the lever around with your thumb isn't terribly reliable, its better to spend the extra moment to slow down and smoothly advance the film. Otherwise you'll get uneven frame spacing and things can get momentarily stuck. In general the lens isn't the sharpest thing in the universe but its nice and I didn't have any flare issues. The only picture quality issue came from fingers intruding into the frame. Keep the fingers clamped down on the camera and keep our hands flat. Otherwise if you're looking to do some wider shots, this is a great low cost way to doing it. You can set a proper exposure for most shots (be sure you have a light meter, this obviously does not come with one) and its simple enough to get the hang of quickly. Lomo fanatics may find it a little too "evolved" for the point and pray fun of using a toy camera and if you're looking for a well engineered camera... bahahahahaha... get ready to fork out the bucks buddy. So it occupies a middle ground for those who want to be able to ensure they get a proper exposure so they don't waste endless miles of film but accept the limitations of a special effects toy camera. Recommended but be sure you know what you're getting
