Light Camera, easy, to experiment with the sequential ones and take it everywhere. It is known as Robot 3.
This camera popped up in my life searching by eBay. An it’s the only one I have, for the time being, which is sequential.
Its neat design is remarkable and you can recognize it by the little face its lenses create. It is a robot. You can find them in a million colors, so you will have to chose one :D The best about it is the price. Really cheap.
As all the sequential cameras it takes photos with a minimal time gap between. The difference is this one has 3 lenses. Two little lenses and an elongated one. And that’s all.
You have to pick the camera with you hands, load it with a roll as you would do with any other 35mm camera you have and, let’s shoot!!!
It has a retractable viewfinder for having a reference with the frame. But better … don’t think, just shoot!!
It is a daylight camera as it comes with no flash and it would capture the movement as the actionsampler would do, for instance.
What I like about the Robot3 is the way in which the photos come out. They are not square shaped, nor rectangular.
Pros: It weighs nothing, it is comfortable, it will not be a burden for carrying it in you bag or around your wrist, the 10 lomo rules match it perfectly, it is funny, pretty, user-friendly… it is perfect for people wanting to experiment with the sequential ones. Even I would say it is perfect for inserting masks, cutting-off separator tabs, including filters… This is a camera you can “destroy” as it is very cheap :D
The only con I can find in it is you can only use it during daytime. It has no flash.
You can stand without doing a thing a let thing around moving.
It can be you who moves the camera.
Load it with a slide film and see how the colors get transformed.
Get close to your target and capture their faces of “Like a Virgin”, of surprise, their funny faces!
Take it to the beach, in the car… wherever you wish.
And even you can try to do doubles!! ;)
¿Do you dare with the Robot? :D
