Can be because the ORWO cassette was more and better elaborated than the cassette KODAK and without its inconveniences ?
. the color film ORWO, similar to the AGFA CT 18 was good quality.

I can't understand why they used a film different to 110 if they planned to export it. I mean 110 was very popular in west, but now they chose a size that is impossible almost everywhere...
BTW I started to buy flashcubes and flashbulbs long time ago, when they were easy & cheap to get. So that I would have enough for decades. Seems like a good decision, now they have disappeared from finnish fleamarkets!

presse the lock yoyu can see under "LOMO " name and slip the cover right to left.

Oh I guess I'm blind! It does say Lomo on the first image, I could not see it at first! Sorry!

okynek Posted - Dec 14 2007 : 07:32:42 AM
No,no,no, please do not take camera apart! I only wish to see where is film go and how it open up. Camera seems to be very thin. Does it use 16mm film?
mermoz37 Posted - Dec 14 2007 : 03:46:43 AM
you can read 3 pictures : so , only the third one is export serie model .(the case is different) .
may be i have to explain in the following text ?

what do you need to see inside ? : the cassetteand battery nest or dismantle to see mecanism ?
in the past i open and dismantle the proto , but you know the plactic cover is very bad and breakable...may be i try to found an old article i wrote about in french Niepce revue, and copy the pictures ...
whith pleasure
okynek Posted - Dec 13 2007 : 10:41:15 PM
Could be because it was designed for export from the beginning. Camera used Pentacon 16 cassettes what never produced in USSR. And Latin name is small but Russian is big and everywhere even on the bag. So everything where it should be by Partee guidelines
I wish I can see how it looks inside!!!
