Don’t underestimate what this pocket-sized plastic camera can do. Disderi 3 Lens Robot Camera may be diminutive but it is loaded with functional creativity and can produce amazing curved 3-grid effects.

I bought a Disderi 3 Lens Robot Camera on Ebay.ph for 850 pesos (18$) and instantly fell in love with it, being an aficionado of multiple lens cameras. The package includes the camera, box, strap and user manual (written in Chinese) with cute illustrations. This camera is available in four colors – pink/white, black/orange, black/yellow, and green/white.

Shooting with this plastic toy camera is so much fun. It’s cheap yet very functional, and small enough to fit in my pocket. I can bring it anywhere I go. Another cool and unique feature of this camera is that it can split an image into 3 step frames, instead of the common 4 or 8 frame sequences. You don’t have to worry about the technicalities. There are no settings to adjust and no battery is needed. Just grab it, point and shoot, without even using the viewfinder. I particularly like the vertical shots that it creates because they look like opened books. How cool is that!?

The choice of films isn’t a big deal too. Though it’s recommended to use 35mm films with 200 ISO or higher, you can actually load films with lower ISO in it. I’ve used a few rolls of expired Konica VX 100 before and I was really impressed with the quality of shots.

So if you’re an enthusiast of multiple shoot cameras, you should definitely add the Disderi 3 Lens Robot Camera in your collection! It won’t disappoint you.

    i have the black one! you're right, at first i was unsure of the capability of this camera to take cool pictures. I mean it has no shutter speed settings, no aperture size, nothing at all.

    but when the pictures came out... wow
