Make Your SuperSampler Fly!

11

Here's one tipster that is almost not one, but rather a boldness and nothing more. Read about how you can make your SuperSampler fly after the jump!

Well it’s as simple as grabbing your SuperSampler, head to a park or any area where there’s a soft floor, grass or something similar, this is just in case we’re clumsy.

So just get your SuperSampler, load the film and with the long exposure mode on, press the shutter and throw the little camera in the air. You can even apply some movements effects! But don’t fall asleep while you stare how it falls…get it before it touches the floor! In any case, if you’ve taken all the precautions listed above you have nothing to be afraid, if it falls on the soft surface, it won’t feel a thing!

If you throw it while pushing one of its ends, and you’ll get an awesome twister effect. The SuperSampler will be opening its lenses during two seconds, so there will be enough time to get curious spirals.

You’ll get unexpected and abstract results, but isn’t it super cool?

Have a look at the photos I’ve shot using this tipster:

The SuperSampler, the queen of multilensed cameras, is now in black. It takes four sequential panoramic shots on a single, action-packed 35mm photo. Grab yours in the Online Shop now!
