Lomography Pop 9 - Staff Review

5

The Pop 9 is a 35mm camera which produces nine repeating images in one print.

Imagine your subject, multiplied nine times in a photograph – that’s what you get with the Pop 9 camera.

The Pop 9 comes in two shiny colors – black, and gold. There are nine individual lenses (24mm, F/11) lined up in 3×3, a viewfinder, and a built-in flash. It has a shutter speed firing up at 1/100 second, and a focal range from 0.8m to infinity, ensuring that your images are sharp. It’s also equipped with a protective lens cover, and a nylon hand strap.

With the Pop 9, your subjects will form a weave of pattern in a 3×3 grid layout, and the photos will look excellent lined up randomly. It’s a very simple and convenient camera – it uses any 35mm film. Try some slides and have it cross-processed – it’ll make your patterns super-saturated and extra-colorful. A nod to Andy Warhol and the Pop Art movement? Yes!

eazy360 has this to say about the Pop 9 -

Lomowall lovers and pattern pundits will relish the nona-squares of the POP9. The lenses create refreshing pop art from the prosaic and commonplace, multiplying their qualities many times over, like a cat with nine lives! With this camera, I enjoy capturing nature’s patterns and juxtaposing images by double exposing an LC-A or Fisheye roll. When shooting second exposures with the POP9, make sure to shoot upside down since it loads the other way around, if you want both double-exposed images to be the right side up. Keep on poppin’!

    The double exposure with the other camera produces a crazy effect, I can't wait to try this out!

    I can imagine doing cool things with the double exposures, but otherwise this camera seems pretty useless (just get nine prints of the same photo for less than the price of this camera...)

    Love, love, love mine! Shoot a roll, process, scan and load into Photoshop for crazy transmogrified Warhol portraits. Shoot close-ups of abstract shapes (cars are great, building materials, anything) and have instant cool wallpaper patterns.
