The Lomographic Society International is thrilled to introduce the Lubitel+, a loving recreation of this Soviet-era classic. Based on a design that dates back over 60 years, it's truly a mid-century masterpiece updated with stunning new features, including the ability to shoot BOTH medium format and 35mm film.
Light enough to be your daily companion, powerful enough to yield mind-blowingly sharp & detailed images, and flexible enough to offer limitless creative possibilities, this handsome fella is simply the biggest news for die-hard analogue photographers in a LONG time.
Lubitel+ is for Lovers:
It's something about that plastic body. Something about peering down through that waist-level finder. Sizing up your subject with the top lens and capturing it through crispy glass lens with the bottom. It's simply irresistible to peoplewho love and adore life.
People who are open-minded, enthusiastic, free with their ideas, philanthropic, endlessly curious, always travelling, constantly documenting, and completely awestruck by the enduring power of analog photographs. In other words people like you!
Shooting with the Lubitel+ is different than anything you have shot before. The combination of its glass lenses, the flexible 120 or 35mm format, fully manual everything, fully automatic nothing, peering into a waist-level finder, slowing things down with focusing and dialing in the correct exposure settings, and a myriad of other analog factors make it a full-bodied experience that activates all of your senses and brings you into a special and very intimate place.
Lubitel+ pictures have their very own look and special analog character. They're more "professional" than any 35mm camera, but less professional than a Hasselblad. Of course they are sharp, crispy, artistic, painted with light, and grand.
But they're also occasionally random, sometimes too vibrant, often vignetted at the edges, and totally flexible to your wishes and innovative tinkering. Rather than reflecting the objective reality in front of you, they reflect the subjective reality of the Lomographer behind the camera. They will make you look twice.
Grab a seat, take our hand, and let us introduce you to this passionate twin-lens lothario.

This is the only exception when it comes to my contempt for twin lens reflex cameras. It has introduced me to medium format and already creates fine photos of superior quality. It's also compact and quite inexpensive compared to the likes of Hasselblad and others that cost thousands of dollars!!!
In our final installment we will quickly look at the various film options available to analog photographers. Obviously through the history of photography there have been a plethor...Read More
