Actionsampler Flash tosses in an additional 4-step sequential flash. With one push of the shutter button, all four lenses fire in perfect synchronicity with the rapid-fire flash. Flash at night to reveal critical action at parties, concerts, and nocturnal events. Flash in the day to fill in those highlights. Uses standard 35mm film and standard processing.
The Actionsampler Flash is yet another very unique camera from Lomo that is super fun to use and produces fantastic images even in the darkest atmospheres. Similar to the popular Cybersampler, the Actionsampler produces its unique images by setting off 4 separate pictures.Expand review high-quality lenses in a clockwise motion, making 4 split images on one picture (quadrant style).
It improves upon the Cybersampler with the addition of a powerful flip up flash (4 separate flashes to be exact!) that go off perfectly in sync with each opening shutter allowing you to take shots and experiment in any less-than-bright situation. The flash is powered by 2 “AA” batteries (included) and the recycle time is only 7 to 10 seconds so you can get back to taking shots right away. As usual – experimentation and physical involvement are highly recommended (run with it, wave it around, stick it in people’s faces, and most importantly – get close!).
Here are a few tips …
1. Use it outdoor and indoor
2. Use 400 or 800 speed film – that shutter moves fast, and anything slower might blur your images (unless you like that).
3. WAIT for the flash to charge fully and the ready light to come on. It can take about 12 seconds or so. If you fire before the flash is recycled, then one element might not flash and you’ll get a black frame.
4. have fun!
