The finished results are rather dreamy in effect due to the cheap plastic lens, a real 1960's feel is achievable and gives my photos a lovely warm feeling of nostalgia which it's harder to get from more modern lenses.
It's fairly small and compact with a large range of accessories available should you wish to develop your skills (which you probably will).
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a small camera for all skill sets. Enjoy.

BE AWARE: - This camera uses 120 film - I purchase mine at a local camera store - you most likely won't be able to find film at your local CVS, Walgreens, etc. We're talking film purchase at specialty camera stores or online.
I'd like to find a camera case - shoulder strap - that accepts the flash/hot shoe as well - at present, I use a large shoulder strap purse.
The "used" set I bought came as new. In the box, blister packed, tied in. I saw no discernible signs of use, and it arrived in a box from Lomography. The set itself is massive and impressive. You get the kitchen sink. You would be hard-pressed to not find what you needed in this kit. It also comes with a few beautifully printed books that really give a feel for the lomo lifestyle.
The materials are solid for what they are, plastic. They are a few steps below Bakelite, but certainly above your average cheapie plastic. Good stuff but certainly not rugged war-photography goods. But you knew that.
As for the images: the lenses are sharper than I expected. Quite good in fact. But!! If you are using this for mission critical shots, beware. Out of the 5 rolls I've shot, I have maybe been rewarded with 5 usable shots. Exposure is hard to nail, even if set correctly and I have had a number of overly dense or overly thin negative frames that have made enlarging difficult if not impossible.
However, the shots the you do get have a certain something about them. In fact they are beautiful. Often people call the images dreamy when referring to plastic cameras, but it's more than that. There is a timeless quality to the images. And I am more than happy with the ones I do get.
As a side note, this camera makes double exposures super easy, in fact so easy it becomes default if you aren't careful. Well I've never experimented with double exposure much, and this camera has taught me that I don't particularly like them. Haha. Just something to keep in mind.
So my honest assessment: at the full new price it's a bit much, fun but the price of entry is a little high in my opinion. However at the discounted used price, it is well worth it. Give it a shot.
