So how about a deluxe feature loaded plastic fantastic to strike back ?But is Lo-Flying brilliance or a over priced pretender ?Continue reading The Roland Garros Edition Lo-Fi – The Lomography LomoApparat Review
To some, the LC-A 120 might just seem to be an overpriced lump of plastic designed to exploit more dollars for Hipsters.
