Lomo Uniquely rare "MOMENT" (1954)
Fotocamera istantanea - Buono (usato e funzionante con segni d’uso visibili)

The rarest chamber produced an official circulation of 9.000 units. For five years of collecting photographic equipment, this camera comes across to me only a three time.

Functionality: Functionality: lens and viewfinder lenses are clean, viewfinder visibility is good - no distortion, focusing and aperture operation are smooth and pleasant. The blades of the diaphragm are dry, without excessive lubrication. The shutter does not work correctly: the blades do not close completely after the release, lubrication and adjustment are required. There is no lock for the exposure distance scale, a handle for opening the front panel, an optical viewfinder. The frame viewfinder is fully functional. The appearance is good, in some places it is necessary to glue the skin to the body. Horizontal and vertical movements relative to the coordinate axes work perfectly. The camera was tested without chemicals and reagents because of their absence and rarity, only mechanics and optics, and their condition is excellent

The second and third photo is a photo-copy from the catalog, it is presented as a reference for identifying the model and is not part of the lot.

Moment camera is the first Soviet camera of the Polaroid type. Produced in the series of 1952-1954, this camera can hardly be found in full set. The camera was produced with the main aim to implement the idea of Polaroid 95 within the USSR and to give Soviet people the chance to appreciate that technical paragon of the time. “Moment” is a wonderful camera designed according to brilliant know-how of precise optical equipment. However, the reliability of its construction and excellent performance characteristics were not enough for the camera to overcome all troubles on the way to the customer and to enjoy vast popularity with the public. The reason is simple: miserable quality of Soviet photographic “Polaroid” film, its skyrocketing prices and general shortage didn’t allow the post-war society grasp the advantages of the camera. When it became clear that common people can’t let themselves pay a lump sum for some unproved film, Soviet leaders decided to direct the whole series of “Moment” cameras to photographic studios. Yet, even there the notorious low quality of the film and numerous problems during its processing made photographers switch to traditional cameras, like FKD. The major part of “Moment” cameras were returned to the factories, others were destroyed by the time or people. The camera left behind its time .
