Evolution of the Lomo LC-A to the LC-M, LC-A+, LC-Wide and now the LC-A 120

The lomo LC-A was introduced to the Soviet Union in 1984 as a camera for the people.

It seems funny now but when I got my LC-A in 1998 there was not much to choose from if you wanted a half decent camera that could fit in your jean pocket.
