Well, my LC-A Arrived! Turns out its a 1985 model and, in typical LC-A fashion, the day I got it, I had to operate.
I got in from work on Thursday and there was one of those bloody “Sorry We Missed You” cards from Royal Mail. So the next morning, bright and early I trotted off to the delivery office and finally got my LC-A. But it wouldn’t engage the shutter whenever I wound on the film, it would just wind on and on until the film ended. After completely wasting a roll of film I decided it was broken. I called the legendary Dr Lomo (a.k.a Roger Lean) who semi diagnosed the problem/wanted £40 to fix it. I decided a £2 eye glass repair screwdriver and some photos off the internet would be a better option. Low and behold, after taking the base off, I found that something a jumped out of place, put it back and I have a working Lomo LC-A again! Yay!!!
Here are some shots from my test roll. I must say, I’m mightly impressed!
