Vintage Soviet camera Lomo Smena/Смена 8M complete with original black carrying case. This little camera was one of the best selling classic soviet Cameras of all time and had a 25 year production run from the start of the 70’s right into the mid 90’s. The answer about popularity this camera is its simplicity and its killer lens. It`s reliable and good shooter. The key here is the triplet T-43 lens which sound like a tank model but it beguiles an otherwise plasticky camera as it’s very sharp and a good choice . The lens mount allows the user to set both aperture and shutter speed. Smena is geared for easy shooting so all you need to do then is match the 5 weather pictograms on the shutter ring to your current weather condition. However you can set the Smena to what you want (traditional shutter speeds are on the underside of the shutter ring) The camera has PC sync for flash and is cable threaded. It also can take 35.5mm filters which can be found (or use step up rings).
