I've had my supersampler for almost a year and it's one of the best purchases i've made. It took shooting a few rolls to get the hang of how the camera works, but now I rarely get a "bad" picture from it. Two important things to keep in mind when shooting with this camera: 1) the more light in your environment, the better. This camera is really meant for outdoor usage, specifically on a sunny day...that's when you'll get the best colors from your film, and 2) Motion. This camera is great at capturing motion if you take advantage of it. You can shoot your subject as it's moving or move you camera while shooting. This will produce much more interesting photos than holding the camera still while shooting a static subject.
Along with having a good deal of light while shooting and creating movement in your shots, there are some other things to know about the supersampler. the camera fires off its four lenses at two different speeds, one in about 2 seconds and the other….much much faster. I usually shoot at the slower speed, because often I like to capture my subject moving, and I feel I get the best shots from that setting. Another thing to be aware of is the rip cord used to advance the film. be super gentle with it when possible. I know I would get super excited about capturing a shot with limited time, and I would yank that cord really fast so I could get the next shot even faster. This lead to wear and tear on that cord, and I have since retired that supersampler and bought a new one…because the cord no longer sucked back into the camera like it was supposed to. its a mistake I learned the hard way, but I’mI much more aware it now.
i think this camera is a great addition to any lomo collection. It is by far my favorite camera and I am always pleased with the results :)

Some days, things seem to align for your street shot. The subjects form photo-ready queues that mimic architectural details around. Other times, an arrangement is made. Stretch this way, pose here, move a little forward for a group picture in strategic shapes and patterns.

Ah, well ... let's just show you how it's done! Check out the photos after the jump.
Daniela admits that she's still a newbie when it comes to photography but the positive feedback she's receiving from the community motivates her to push harder and shoot more. Let's get to know more about this dedicated lomographer from Stuttgart, Germany, fraumuellerdenktnach!
We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
