Not a bad little camera. I touched these up a bit in Aperture. I set the Camera ISO to 200, using Portra 160. These were all shot in the Automatic setting.
Mint in the box. Can’t wait to play around with this one. Thanks Bill and Laurie!
Wow. This lens really impresses me.
Here’s a few shots comparing the Cosina CX-1 (early 80’s) to the LOMO LC-A+. They are pretty much the same camera. The CX-1 has a Cosinon 33mm f3.5 lens (4 elements in 3 groups = Tessar), while the LC-A+ a Minitaur 1, 32mm f2.8 lens. Both use coated lenses. The CX-2 later upgraded to a f2.8 lens and autowinder capability. The LOMO has a threaded shutter release button, manual film disengage (for double exposures). The big difference in the design is the rotating lens cover on the Cosina. I actually had to read the manual to figure it out. The Cosina has a nicer feel (covering). Both cameras are solid. One of these days I’ll do a head-to-head comparison of photos.
Oooh. I’m gonna like this lens.
Not bad for a 35-year old camera with 13-year old film! Some touch up work in Aperture.
Ever wish you could go back in time and enter your favorite shop and purchase some new items from the past? I did and it just floors me that such a place exists. An old camera store in Michigan is a time capsule. The shop’s owner was a pack rat and kept his old inventory. He got old and the shop was in limbo for 4 or 5 years. He passed on and left all the gear to his neighbors. I walked in and about fell over. This is a mint in the box never used Olympus Trip for $30. I bought a Cosina CX-1 ZF shooter and a Minolta Hi-Matic G for $20 each. Also a Land of the Giants model kit (re-issue from 1995) and some old film.
