The legendary Lomo Compact Automat is a pocketsize, robust, precise and fully automatic snapshot camera. Using Prof. Radionov's incredible "Minitar 1" wide-angle lens, the Lomo is forever at your side for contrast, color-drenched images.
The unique Lomo Compact is a small, black, aromatic, robust, precise and fully automatic snapshot camera made in Russia. It has lens: for razor-sharp images, highly light sensitive, 32mm wide-angle. This beady little eye sees everything and makes colours radiate.
The secret to the Lomo is its superb light meter and its exposure method - it exposes film for however long is necessary. This results in amazing night photographs, with glowing neon, streaking lights, ghostly people, and a real sense of motion. Daytime shots are equally interesting, filled with color and accentuated by the Lomo's slight distortion and tendency to darken photos towards the edges.
Most importantly, the Lomo Compact Camera is wonderfully simple to use - the only adjustments you have to make are to set the film speed and to set the focus lever (marked with four distances from 0.8 meters to infinity).
The Lomo is more than just a cool camera - it's part of a worldwide community and a refreshingly new artistic movement that encourages even nonartists to be creative.
