This is the camera that started the lomography movement. Well a reproduction of the original actually. This design though is what kickstarted the craze of taking bad pictures on purpose. Surprisingly though this is actually a very competent (if a little limited) camera! It's small but well built, easy to use, and has a very good lens. Aside from focus errors and the inability to control photography settings this camera is capable of capturing fantastic images if you try. Mine is purchased new and so is worth a lot less now then when I bought it.

My Copy's Performance
Well for a Lomo it's working well. Film advance and rewind work perfectly fine and the multi-exposure feature is both neat and works well. The viewfinder is largely pointless and offers no aid past a couple of LEDs to show that it's working and a warning for a longer exposure. You can't control the shutter speed or aperture so I assume they're working fine as photos are coming out. Focus is by estimation and a bit of a challenge. All in all it works as good as you can expect but that bar wasn't very high to begin with.
