reviwes at lomo mag

Basically this camera not so differ from other cameras of Lomo-Smena family. From other Smena’s it’s distinguished by renewed body (black color plastic with small square texture, yellow color of signs, and The Leningrad-St. Petersburg’s Admiralty symbol – sailing ship in round). It also has cocking shutter lever combined with film transport mechanism. Shutter release button is situated on the right side without cable release thread. I’d also add a roulette type film rewind mechanism and built in take up film spool. The lens is the famous T (Triplet)-43 4/40. Shutter speeds 1/15-1/250 and Bulb. Aperture 1/4-1/16. All these things are what bring together this camera with its predecessor – Lomo Smena Symbol. The main distinction is a body design and years of production (1985-1989). As a useful feature I’d mention symbol distant metering.
