have you heard? LC-A is starting a family. after last year’s white Japan edition, Lomography is at it again with this Limited Edition Lomo LC-A+ Russia Day Camera and it certainly grabbed our attention immediately with its contrasting red Italian goat leather against the semi-matte black body. the Russia Day Lomo LC-A+ features the lens that practically kick started the Lomographic movement – the original Russian Minitar 1 Lens. if the red leather doesn’t give it away as a special edition, then the subtle ‘LOMO’ word with a slight Russian twist should.
apart from its striking aesthetic, including a loving craft Russia Day emblem at the back of the camera, the Russia Day camera shares the same specifications as any LC-A+. of course, aesthetic is not everything. this limited edition camera also comes packaged with a special LC-A+ camera strap with Russia Day emblem design, a LOMO LC-A+ book, LC-A+ ‘toolkit’ instruction manual, cable release and batteries – all these goodies, including the camera, are packed neatly inside a special velvet box.
the Limited Edition Lomo LC-A+ Russia Day Camera cost $382.22 a pop and has a limited production run of just 2,000 units worldwide.
