Smena 19 is a Soviet camera produced by the LOMO association from 1985 to 1989. This camera was a restyled modification of the "Change Symbol" camera and differed only in a changed appearance. "Change 19" had no structural differences from the "Change Symbol".

Like all previous cameras in this series, Smena 19 was equipped with a fairly simple triplet T-43-1 4/40 lens. Minimum aperture f16.

The camera was also equipped with a central shutter with shutter speeds of 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250 and B. Unlike the older Smena 8m, this camera does not have a shutter timer.

The camera is equipped with a hot shoe for additional accessories and a convenient film rewind handle. Unlike the very first Changes, there was also a very convenient cocking lever.

The new case looks very interesting, and the lattice texture does not slip in the hand. Due to the fact that the viewfinder is close enough to the lens, the parallax is minimal. The shutter-release button has been significantly redesigned in appearance.

The Soviet LOMO camera Smena 19 is interesting both for its technical characteristics and for the quality of the resulting images that can be obtained using this camera. Smena-19 is also interesting because it is one of the latest models of cameras produced in the USSR.

At that time, the world was already full of cheap cameras with terrible lenses and equally terrible bodies, which ultimately produced terrible photos. Against the backdrop of all this, the Smena 19 camera was an excellent device for its little money.

With a little skill, this LOMO camera could take just great pictures.
