The answer is definitely LC-A+. It is the one gives initial inspiration to lomographers and creates inundant trend of lomography life style.
The full name of LC-A+ is Lomo Kompakt Automat and its original one LC-A was firstly introduced in St Petersburg, Russia in 1982 and the design was based on Consina CX-2. It was considered as compact camera with fixed lens, 35mm film, leaf shutter and zone focus.The specialty of LC-A+ is to take photos with radiant color and shadowy vignette corners. However, nowadays as the development of lomography, the increasingly number of various LC-A+ camera with special functions are produced for particular requirement. i will provide most prevalent LC-A+ cameras in following paragrahs with brief features and effect pictures.
