Caution in Winter - Your Spinner can Freeze!

3

Be careful in the winter, because it may be that your Spinner 360° freezes. And that means it can not rotate properly. Read on if you want to know what you can do about it.

If it’s too cold outside, as for example in the winter, it may be that your Spinner 360° does not rotate completely. This happens when the rubber band is too cold, then it has no more right swing and then it can not accommodate all the 360 ° pictures more.

Here are a few tips to help you this will not happen:

  • Heat the rubber band and do it only on the Spinner, if you want to capture the image.
  • Let your Spinner heat up in a pocket or cuddle with it under your jacket.
  • If it does not properly rotate and you are traveling with a car, keep the rubber ring around ventilation and put on warm.
  • Avoid to take pictures in cold temperatures (I think this point you can quickly forget!).

If you do not mind that, then shoot with a lot of fun :)

    Sadly had to experience this during skiing :-( Could only take spins during the first few runs

    yes, me too! maybe a DIY rubber band which would be softer could solve the problem...

    Shooting with film can be considered a labor of love. From carefully loading the film and adjusting for lighting conditions to the darkroom process, it’s a laborious process but certainly a fulfilling experience. What more if you created your own cameras?

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

    Agfa Precisa CT 35mm: The Blues!

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
