I've always been impressed how much the Lomography guys seem to be able to charge for their cameras, but when browsing their site the other day, even I was surprised by the asking price of the latest incarnation of the LC-A, the 'LOMO LC-A+ White Special Edition', a bargain at 379 GBP ($621 USD): http://uk.shop.lomography.com/cameras/lc-a-cameras/lomo-lc-a-white (if you get re-directed to the US site, you'll be offered it for a mere $399 USD - not sure what currency converter they're using, but it seems to be the same one as Adobe). It occurred to me that, for this money, I could buy pretty much any other 35mm Modern Film Camera ever made, with the exception of the real collectables, some Leica & Contax models, and one or two recent flagship SLRs. So, if I wanted to splash out the price of a Lomo (US or UK) on something less hyped, what should I go for? Extra credit if the gear automatically confers on me the ability to take edgy, unpredictable but always artistic images in a wash of lurid colours. Or just looks cool.
