I don't know what I expected, when I set out to try it, but I'm a tad disappointed at the poor focus. It really appears to be a Lomography camera, even before it was pirated into the Lomo LC-A. With that in mind, the camera is good for capturing scenes from 3 to ten meters or so. The automatic exposure gives even results, even given very different light situations.
|The lens is very prone to flare. I don't know how to protect it apart from trying to using my hand as protection.|
The camera is as small as an Olympus XA, but is otherwise not comparable to it. If you end up choosing between the two - choose the XA (or XA2)! It has focus (where and when you want it), a great lens, great exposure, backlight compensation...
Should you want to buy the Praktica/Cosina it's available in my Etsy camera shop!
