Tipster Of The Week: Supersampler Half


It seems easier said than done these days, but actually being positive comes a long way...

It seems easier said than done these days, but actually being positive comes a long way…


My supersampler got broken, it’s shutter is not working properly anymore. Whenever I fire the shutter, It clicks 1 (wuurrr!), 2 (wuurrr!)… and it just stops right there and I have to shake it so it could go on to the remaining two succeeding shots. That’s why I call it now as ‘SUPERSAMPLER-HALF’. These may not be a modified camera but I think it’s my destiny. hahaha :) LOVE IT!! Lomo on!

It may be strange that she did not throw a fit or showed any signs of childish tantrums (and blamed anyone that she sees) upon learning what had happened to her camera, instead she easily took the damage very lightly and allowed herself to move on and reconciled with her dysfunctional plastic device thus making something new out of it despite the state of things.

Never failing to look at the brighter side of things and always aspiring for a better (or worse) photos … this is indeed an absolute LomoLove! Congratulations to bbg_mae07! that positivism earned her the title Tipster Of The Week!

    That's an interesting idea...a camera that you shake in order to take a photo. It sounds like and analog iPhone app!

    same thing happens with my oktomat, only i never know when it's going to stop shooting and i'm going to have to give it a shake... i'm still waiting to finish the roll that's in it to see the results. after seeing these shots i'm a little more hopeful!
