Item details


Lubitel or as soviets, russians call it Любитель was not intended for the professional market. That's why they named it the Lubitel, which literally means amateur, or hobbyist in russian.

So, this is a really minimalistic TLR, it's not heavy. It's basically a bakelite plastic body, with some metal parts, and lens glass.
Plus the carrying case, which is made of something, that resembles leather, but it maybe has nothing to do with leather at all.

We tried this one out in Slovenia, and found it to be perfectly working.

These are exciting cameras, and being that old, it is amazing that it still works.

This uses no batteries, and there is no metering. Either you have to shoot with a light meter, or meter light with a digital camera, or use a smartphone app. Or just judge light with your eyes, you master.

Has original hungarian Ofotért lens cleaning cloth, with its own little brown carrying case attached to the camera case. (Ofotért was the hungarian optical firm before/after the fall of socialism in hungary)

Will send you our handy hand written manual, and a 120 rollfilm with this, so you can try it out of the box.

Thanks for looking!

P.S.: We ship to North Korea also. 반갑습니다 !!
