It started when a friend of mine Baizurah post an album about her new obsession over Lomo. I didn't know anything about Lomo but her new pink Diana Mini "en rose" was super cute. I wanted one too.
So I started researching about lomo and lomography... and even joined the LOMO Sabah. Luckily one of my distant relative was the admin, and I asked Morris what would be the best toy camera for a beginner like me.
This is what he wrote to me :
bagus oh si Morris...
- LC-A tu made by original 'LOMO' - LOMO (Russian: ЛОМО́) or Leningrad Optical Mechanical Amalgamation (Ленинградское Oптико-Mеханическое Oбъединение) of Russia.
Kebanyakan toy/lomography cameras skrang commercialized under Lomography (bukan LOMO). tapi since dia Lomography, orang still panggil 'lomo'. actually real LOMO tu yang macam di atas sa tulis tu.
about Holga 135BC, sa rasa dia under Lomography product suda. China/Taiwan gitu. lens dia plastic. settings pun kurang. unlike LC-A, body dia compact, Minitar lens (russian glass lens), settings pun ko buli control.
kalau LC-A+ pula, dia made by Lomography. kira commercialized juga la. so lagi mahal. dorang buat market bah. mau cari untung. hehe.
kalau ko mau spend extra, LC-A la the best untuk mau dapat effect2. vignetting (black corner) dia kuat. "
For about a month searching for a good 2nd hand LC-A at ebay... finally I got myself an LC-A, all the the way from Russia...super excited!!
