test roll: Smena 8M

*a couple of months ago i posted my “newest” cameras (here). i’ve gotten the test rolls weeks back but i haven’t blogged about em yet here. but i have posted the test shots on my tumblr.

Lomo Smena 8M: this is my first Lomo camera (“but you have that snap sights! plastic camera ben?” some would i assume ask. Lomo is a manufacturer people. one person actually came up to me and asked about my “lomo cam”…. i was holding my Olympus rangefinder –facepalm .) i wanted to get an LCA way back, but when i was about to fly out to hong kong where i planned to get it, i found my beloved mju sitting in a cupboard at home. so long story short, i spent my money on something else lol. back to the 8M, it is surprisingly GOOD! i mean forget that its body is made of cheap plastic, shutter release is just hard to press, no coupled rangefinder (yes you have to guesstimate your focus), the list goes on how ridiculously cheap and primitive this camera is but its all made up by the amazing optics this baby has. its just effin’ amazing. also, multi-exposures makes this camera alot more fun to play with.
