Leningrad Optical Mechanical Association, more commonly referred to as LOMO, was founded in 1914 in the city that was at the time called Petrograd (now St. Petersburg). The Russian camera maker produced the first Russian camera in 1930. LOMO is known more for its medical optics and scientific instruments than for cameras for consumer use, but it makes many high-quality film and digital cameras as well and has for many decades. LOMO cameras, LOMO lenses, and other accessories for LOMO cameras are available on eBay, including vintage LOMO cameras and genuine leather carrying cases, compact 35mm viewfinder cameras, twin-lens reflex cameras, fish-eye cameras, and others. Although not as big a name in cameras as some more readily recognized camera makers, LOMO puts out many high-quality products that are worth checking into.
