New Light Seals In The Lomo

The last time I used my old Zenith Lomo I noticed the light seals were in a poor way. Found a supplier on an auction site that offered a laser cut kit, when it arrived I wasn’t too sure, the material was very similar to the leatherette that cameras are covered in, not the thin foam I was expecting. So after applying the new light seals I loaded up with a roll of Fuji Reala 100 that had expired in 2001, just in case the seals didn’t keep out the light. I headed to town and snapped away.

Well I needn’t have worried, the new seals are fine. Apart from the expected colour shift I was really surprised how well the film behaved, good job as I have 18 more rolls of Reala 100 in the fridge.
