Dear members:

Please continue to only post images that are taken with the Lomo Lubitel 2 and are suitable for a global audience!

And do remember to TAG your photographs with "Lubitel 2 or they will be deleted from the pool que.

If you have a Lubitel 166 (or models other than a Lubitel 2), please do not post in this group. Instead, you are welcome to post on the LOMO Lubitel group.

Thank you!

Group Description

This is a group for the LOMO Lubitel 2. This is the unsung sister camera of the Lubitel +166 made famous in recent times by The Lomographic Society - however the Lubitel 2 has its own charm and beauty, and remains undiscovered by many!

The Lubitel 2 label covers the following Lubitel cameras (renamed for exportation) -

Kalimar TLR100
Спутник (Sputnik)

The word "Lubitel" ("amateur" in English) was a twin-lens reflex medium format film camera issued by "Leningrad Optics & Mechanics Union" (LOMO). All of the Lubitel cameras were based on the "Voigtländer Brillant" - a German pre-war TLR camera.

After several previous models, the "Lubitel – 2" was issued from 1955 to 1979. The Lubitel has a f4,5 - 75mm Triplet-22 lens (abbr. T – 22) consisting of 3 glasses. The lens can focus from 1,3m.

The Lubitel has a plastic body, and weighs just 570g. Because of this and some simple mechanics, the Lubitel originally sold quite cheaply making it very popular among young photographers who wanted to learn photography while still creating high-quality images.

Group Rules

Welcome to the Lubitel 2 Group!

The only rules are as follows:

1) The pictures must be taken with a Lomo Lubitel 2 and tagged as such! Images without the "Lubitel 2" tag may not be approved for the stream!

2) MILD photoshopping is allowed (color-correction, curves etc.) but please keep photos mostly in their original state.

3) No pornographic or offensive photographs, including nudes, even those considered ARTISTIC nudes. Consider this a PG group.

4) Be respectful of everyone in the group.

Thats all!
