LOMO SMENA 6
PRODUCT ID: SF.100816

OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW
“The word “Smena” (Cmeha) is roughly translated into “Young Generation” in English. True to its name, the Smena line of cameras were designed to provide inexpensive, accessible, and excellent photography tools to the hard-working young Soviets of the time. Manfactured by the legendary LOMO production house of St. Petersburg…” Lomography Society International

Here we have the Smena 6, older and far less common model than the very popular 8M. We found out that the Smena 6 also had sub-variants and this specimen is type PK2465 as listed in Sovietcams.com.

Sample Pictures

I wonder what those Lomo designers were thinking. There is no rewind mechanism on this camera!
Solutions:
a. You can use the core of an empty film canister as the take-up spool and rewind the film in the dark at the end of the roll or get the uncle at the shop to rewind it for you, OR
b. Use an empty cassette as a take-up spool. You need to turn the cassette spool upside down in the cassette body. You can then wind from cassette to cassette.

Sounds like a hassle? But isn’t that part of the analogue charm?
