On Black-and-White Conversion (Pt. II), LOMO Smena 35

'Five frames with the LOMO Smena 35 (Triplet T-43 40mm F4 lens), Part II '

Another batch of images shot on an outing with the Smena 35, a very interesting Russian LOMO 35mm viewfinder film camera. Easily available at the lowest of prices, and manufactures with its all-plastic body, the LOMO, nevertheless, came with a very interesting lens. The Triplet T-43 40mm F4 is a highly regarded '3 lens anastigmat' built-in coated glass kit lens with aperture setting from F4 to F16 and a shutter speed range from 1/15 to 1/250 second and B.

The shutter is cocked separate from the film wind and can be operated independently and repeatedly over a single film frame, making multiple exposures, both intentionally or unintentionally, interestingly possible. I have yet to go into this mode with my review unit, and will probably plan for it in the near future.

These images were shot on a roll of expired Kodak ColorPlus 200, scanned and post-processed initially on the defunct Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3). The conversion and final enhancement of the black-and-white images were done on Microsoft Photos.
