Lomo has launched a new Twin Lens Reflex camera, which is designed to shoot 35mm as well as medium-format 120 film.
Built as a ?loving re-creation? of the original Soviet era classic, the Lomo Lubitel 166+ costs £259.65.
There are four image formats: 6x6cm (12 frames on a 120 roll); 6×4.5cm (16 images); Endless panorama (16 square images on a 120 roll); and users can choose to shoot 35mm film images as ?panoramic portraits where the image exposes the entire film ? including sprocket holes?.
Lomo claims the lens focuses down to 0.8m.
Features include a standard hotshoe for flash and manual focusing.
The ?zone focus? mode can be set to 0.8m, 1.5m, 3m and infinity.
The camera?s viewfinder is claimed to cover 100% of the image area.
The camera back and viewfinder are interchangeable so that a different style of viewfinder or another focusing glass can be put in its place.
A Lomo spokesman said there are interchangeable backs for its new TLR ?in the pipeline?.
