I like this camera. A lot. Using old Fuji Pro 160





And crop from above:



It's actually quite a bit sharper than what is shown, there's that wonderful Flicker resizing algorithm again!

I have 2 of these through luck alone. 1st version and the 2nd one with multi levels. I shoot both regularly as ultra wide angle photos are best viewed as LARGE prints.

Veriwide 100, Kodak TMAX 400, Z7 scan



This is in the Santa Monica mountains; it used to be a combination of trees, bushes and chaparral. The recent fires destroyed everything.

Amazing camera. Very pricy! What did this camera cost back in the day? And when did it go out of production?

I've wanted the original Veriwide for a very long time. Still contemplating. I could sell some stuff I'm not using and get one. Just haven't found the right deal.

Yep that's the one I have. It is such a beautifully made camera and so silky smooth to use. I much prefer it to my Fuji 690. My last roll - image above - was shot on Ilford 3200 as I was curious to see how to expand the shooting envelope as the max aperture is f8.
With ISO 3200 you in essence have an f2.8 lens at iso 400 exposure-wise.
A min aperture of f32 makes things very useable with ISO 3200.
I was surprised at the lack of grain in the image - perhaps from overexposure then dev the film at box rating, which is how I shot it.

Yes in my experiences with MF slow lenses, high speed film is the answer for handholding. I am also doing the same thing with 120 Delta 3200 with my Plaubel Makina IIIR, and the 73mm F6.8 Plaubel Orthar. I really like this one but I want WIDER. This camera will complete my Plaubel systems.

Not as wide as the 47mm Super Angulon, I am a huge fan of that lens. I have a copy already in a shutter, that I use on my Sinar 4x5 Norma, with roll back. The Veriwide is a very small package for what it is.

If I can find a good one at a good price I'll grab it.

But, any LCA-120 shooters in this thread?

I'd be interested to see some results and opinions on the camera and lens!

I do wish so many of them were not mouldy and rusted up!

Interestingly his example looks beat up/well used. That I’d think would effect performance. It seems that many of these cameras were ridden hard and put away wet!

Roberts Camera had one for $800 last month that i was eyeing. Patches of heavy rust front, back, and inside. They said it worked and I believe them! No finder and someone bought it! If the outside looks like that, what about the insides?


Oh Well. Will keep looking. I want one working with no rust or mould.

I’ve got the lca120. Pretty different beast than the veriwide. There is a thread here somewhere with pics.

The LC-A 120 seems to have film transport issues. It seems that it feeds some film correctly, while others have wind on issues resulting in fewer frames per roll. The one I used (brand new) had focus issues, basically it would only have subjects in focus at the infinity mark.
It's a cool camera, I just feel that being priced where it is , well, I cannot justify it because "I" don't feel the value.
This is interesting as I do feel the value in the Brooks Plaubel Veriwide, which is much much more expensive. Because it works so smoothly and beautifully, as well as giving stunning results.

Perhaps I would have felt differently if the Lomo I used worked correctly. Because there really is nothing like it available.

What I wish is, if only some Japanese manufacturer came up with something like LC-A 120 back in the '80s. Make it the way they made the scale focus point & shoots on which the original LC-A was based on. Make it just like the Cosina CX-2...

But who would buy such a camera back then? They would still demand more of the "quality", which could drive the the price beyond the professional Fuji GS645W range. The LC-A 120's idea is to liberally shoot the rather large and square negative. Maybe that's really a modern thing.

The second one I tried seemed to be able to focus correctly. As for the film transport, it seems that the more use mine gets the better it becomes. Lately I am getting the full 12 images on a roll of 120 and it has become rare to have overlapping images.


Since it is highly unlikely that anyone will decide to build a better one I just enjoy what I have and take the good with the not so good.


It is certainly a very fun camera to use.

Is it affected by the brand of film used?
