2006: The Made-in-China LOMO LC-A+, presenting new features and enhancements to the original LOMO LC-A, is released in September 2006.
The LOMO LC-A+ bears all characteristic qualities of its ancestor plus new features and improvements inspired directly by the wishes and suggestions of the global Lomographic community. The most remarkable new functions of the camera are a multiple exposure switch, enhanced ASA settings and a cable-release-enabled button for long time exposures. One of the simplest but most imaginative innovations of the LOMO LC-A+ is that small slots are added on either side of the lens. Via these ‘front grooves’ plenty of clever accessories can be fitted, which extend the optics and possibilities of the camera.
This copy of a copy of a copy is now almost entirely produced in China. Although a small quantity of the legendary Minitar 1 lens, is still manufactured at LOMO PLC in St Petersburg. The camera is produced by the Lomographic Society and Colibri Manufacturers. The LOMO LC-A+ was first released in September 2006. Since June 2007 there is also a LOMO LC-A+ with a Made-in-China Minitar 1 lens available. Needless to say the cleverly introduced Chinese copy of the Minitar 1 delivers 98% the same results as its original.
