Lomography LC-A 120 overview

  • 1Description

The Lomography LC-A 120 Medium Format Film Camera allows you to combine your love for analog photography with the ease of automatic exposure and aperture via its built-in light sensor. The camera shoots twelve 2.2 x 2.2" square frames on 120 film, and provides features such as a four-step zone focusing system, multiple exposures, and long exposures with rear-curtain flash.

Separating this camera from most of Lomography's toy cameras is its multi-coated glass lens, the Minigon XL. The lens gets its name by combining the Minitar-1 from the LC-A with the popular "gon" suffix for wide angle lenses of the past. It is a 38mm f/4.5 (21mm equivalent), the widest medium format lens on a Lomography camera. Shoot everything from wide landscapes to group shots of your friends with this compact medium format camera. Additionally, the camera comes with a 220-page hardcover book for inspiration.

Automatic exposure with a built-in light sensor

    Lomography LC-A 120 reviews

    LC-A 120 Medium Format Film Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quirky fun Having owned an original 35mm LC-A for 20+ years now, I thought it would be fun to have a companion for 6x6 shooting. The LC-A 120 is just the thing. This is not a precision camera by any means. It feels plasticky because it's plastic-bodied. The lens is quirky: sharp in the middle with edge fall-off and vignetting galore. A bonus is the ability to double (or triple or quadruple) expose images. The only exposure control you have is to change the ISO setting, which is a bit of a strange workaround. Film loading can be challenging, as the spool insertion and removal relies on moving a spring-loaded bevel, and I'd say that's my biggest criticism of this camera. It's pricey for what you get, but a lot of fun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I'd heard mixed things about this camera, but I ordered one anyway. It's light weight, the meter is very good, the lens is very sharp when focused properly. It is my favorite camera and I like to take it everywhere. It is very good and I simply love it.So what should you know?1. Take you time when loading it, it's a bit finicky. The $ Bessa 667 and the Pentax 67 are as well, so it's not just this camera.2. Mine came with a light seal missing. So light entered the film chamber from the frame counter. Once I figured this out, it two two minutes to correct.3. The starting position for my camera is left of the recommended (I was losing 1/2 the 12th frame, not any more now)4. Winding should be done with care to prevent breaking it.It's a great camera, you just need to learn it - like Holgas, Dianas, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from pricey but worth it I spent a long time wondering whether to get this camera or not. It seemed very pricey (still think so) but I was really liking what i saw posted on the Lomography site by other photographers using it. Yes, it is finicky loading, and the shutter occasionally jams, as if you had wanted to do a multiple exposure--in which case, your only recourse is to press the shutter again and hope that your non-intended double exposure comes out okay. The zone system focusing works perfectly. I still have to learn the subtleties of this camera, I find the highlights are a tad too hot sometimes (the shadows always seem to be exposed perfectly), but since it's the camera who decides the aperture based on what you are focusing in on, I don't know that there's any way around it.
