The long-term light curves of the AM Her type binary BY Cam and the nova-like variable PG 2133+115 are presented. The BVR observations were carried out at a 0.5 m telescope equipped with a high sensitive TV tube superisocon (Abramenko et al. 1978), the UBV photoelectric data were obtained at 0.6 and 1.25 m telescopes and the photographic estimates were made from the negatives obtained at the 0.4 m astrograph in Crimea.
Both stars show high and low brightness states. They show similar behaviour in some respects: the amplitude between high and low states was about two magnitudes in B, but the duration of a low state was approximately two months for BY Cam and 1… 2 years for PG 2133+115.
