This camera found a new home through my Etsy shop:
I think I understand the attraction and frustration of using a Lomo. It’s like driving an old Fiat or a Peugot. When it works, it’s über-cool, but you have to put up with a lot to have those cool times.
The first roll I ran through the LC-A, I just pressed the shutter button like any other camera — push and release. I didn’t realize that, A) the shutter opening isn’t instantaneous and, B) the autoexposure circuit is really primitive and you have to hold the shutter button until the shutter closes.
Digikey has a sweet web-based schematic program for knocking out quick-and-dirty diagrams.
The short version (oops, too late) is, I wasted a roll learning how the Lomo works.
On to the photos…
