Lomography are probably the most prolific current analogue camera makers in the world. Many of their products have cult status. But a few cameras just haven’t cut the mustard and disappear. One of these is this little known number. But this shatters the whole notion that the Lomography Simple Use invented the re-loadable disposable class.
