Finally! Something Perpekt!

23

I think plenty of Lomographers want to own a Perpekt.

Before, I was hesitant to have one. 1st, it is expensive. 2nd, it consumes more than two frames in one shot, which means goodbye one roll in just few shots. 3rd, scanning or stitching the photos is a pain in the ass. And 4th, it’s expensive!!

Thanks to the piggies that I got from Rumbles, I had a reason to buy that expensive thing

And of course some piggies from the Lomojeopardy!

Fortunately, there were voucher code giveaways recently and I took the opportunity to use one to get additional 10percent off :) I bought the Perpekt with couple more cameras for friends

But the cameras are still at @b0rn2b1ush's office in HongKong. I had to have the items shipped there to avoid the exxagerated rate of tax here in the Philippines.

So while waiting for more than a month for my Perpekt to be in my hands, I have to satisfy myself looking at my shots from the Horizon Kompakt that I borrowed from @halfawakehaiku :
