Blocky-but-lightweight, the Oktomat is a fun, fuss-free 35mm camera that takes a series of eight frames in one photo.
Looking at this chunk of vibrantly-colored plastic, you can tell that the Oktomat is going to give you quirky results. On top of the camera is a black collapsible viewfinder, which you can do without, honestly! Nestled in front are eight googly lenses. A push of the shutter button fires the lenses in 2.5 seconds.
The result? A print is neatly sliced into eight scenes that make up a story! You can make a “mini movie” out of your photos by uploading it to the Lomography website.
With its fixed aperture and speed (approx. f/8, 1/100) you don’t have to fuss about focusing and other technical details. This camera takes brilliant pictures, and works exceptionally well when it’s bright outside. Because it doesn’t have flash, it’s recommended that you use a fast film when the lighting conditions aren’t so favorable.
It takes any kind of 35mm film – negative, slides, or black & white – and can be conveniently processed in your trusted film lab or supermarket.
The Oktomat makes a handy, fun, and convenient camera to use, ideal for shooting outdoor activities and casual snapshots.
