Item details

The word "Smena" (Cmena) is roughly translated into "Young Generation" in English. True to its name, the Smena line of cameras were designed to provide inexpensive, accessible, and excellent photography tools to the hard-working young Soviets of the time.

The Smena 8m camera was as very successfully type long time in production since 1970 as minimum up to 1993. It was produced by LOMO in today's St. Petersburg (in the past Leningrad) in Russia. They are part of Russian camera history. And very surprisingly they are capable to take quite acceptable pictures.

A classic mid-80s icon dug deep from LOMO factory, its 3-element glass Triplet lens is something to brag about with its eye-popping color saturation and contrast. The Smena 8m's unique fully-manual settings gives you total control of your shots.

Smena 8m is very simply camera. It has typical metal-plastic soviet design. On camera except numbers are symbols like bright sun - sun - cloudy - rain - heavy rain, etc. Give Smena a bit of attention and practice, and it will produce incredible images that cannot be duplicated by any other camera.
