We’ve built a prince’s ransom of improvements into the basic Lubitel design. As Lubitel devotees for countless years, we had a few “pet peeves” that we wanted to change. Here’s the bigger and the better

35mm Format

As detailed in the Film Formats section, you can easily convert your Lubitel+ into a 35mm machine with the included “Lubikin” set – allowing you to snap vertical panoramic images with exposed sprocket holes. Oh yes!

Endless Panorama Format

Just like with the Diana F+, you can shoot an endless stream of images with no space between frames – thereby crafting a uniquely analog panoramic image which can stress the entire length of your film!

Improved Viewfinder

The Lubitel+’s viewfinder glass is perfectly flat ground glass and covers 100% of the image. The original viewfinder used curved glass, was a bit tough to see in any angle other than head-on, and only covered 80% of the image.

Closer Focus

The Lubitel+ lens focuses to 0.8m, while the classic Lubitel lens only focused to 1.4m. This means stronger and more intense portraits and close-up shots!

Zone Focus (just like the LC-A+!)

The Lubitel+ features a easy zone focus mode which snaps to the familiar LC-A+ distance settings of 0.8m, 1.5m, 3m, and infinity (allowing you to truly “be fast”).

On-Camera Exposure Guides

Setting the manual exposure of the Lubitel just got a lot easier with the help of two handy exposure guides (one aperture-priority, one shutter-priority) printed right onto your camera.

Standard Hotshoe

Sync any standard hotshoe flash – including the Colorsplash flash or Diana Flash – perfectly with your camera.

Rewind your 120 rolls

With the Lubitel+, you can rewind your film before the end of the roll. This allows you to trade film rolls with a mate rewind to a past frame and shoot on it again. This is one of the only medium format cameras in the world that can do this!
