Lubitel 166B.

Remember I mentioned about getting myself a medium format camera? I think this is it for now. I am after a Lubitel 166B, which takes 60mm square photos. Having 2 lenses means that the focusing lense and the one that you look through are separate. These are usually vintage deadstock or preowned as they were made in the USSR in the 1950s - 1960s and made in USSR.

The photographs from this camera has sharper edges compared to the holga and the control of the exposure is better. I love the waist level viewfinder, it completes the vintage look. The best part of it is the fact that as it is not a collector's item, they come much cheaper.

Check out this site to see more pictures taken with the camera.
