The Lomo LC Wide is unique. There is no other compact ultra wide camera with 17mm or near to it. There was the 15mm Zeiss Hologon camera in the 70s, a full size camera, it was F 8 and it costs thousands. The Lomo has a F 4.5 lens which has relativly mild distortion and very low vignetting for such a wide lens. It's a nice and easy to handle camera. It's very compact, its long exposure capability distances most of the others. Seen its lens it isn't even that expensive.
The 3 formats are more kind of a gadget. The 18x24 format has its own film advance, so you can squeeze about 75 photos on a 36 exp. film and it has its own viewing mask. The 24x24 format is just a film mask inside the camera, spacing is 36mm, so I don't see the use of it. The camera is real fun if you are into wide angles, like I am. There are many enthusiastic reviews on the web which I find quite annoying, there is a lot of copy and paste from the clever Lomography marketing material.
The shutter and other basic functions are working properly.
