All Weather Actionsampler

With the All-Weather Actionsampler, you can even go under water to make your beloved sample-shots.

What do you want to do in summer? Right. Go swimming. And what cameras are best for sunny days? The samplers (supersampler, actionsampler, oktomat). But there is a problem and that is the refreshing part of swimming: the water. What do you do with your camera when you go to the water? Normally you would leave it outside. But not this camera. It has an additional housing (like LCA- krab or fisheye- submarine). So you can go swimming and diving and nothing will happen to your All-Weather Actionsampler!

Like the original Actionsampler, the AWAS has its four lenses two by two. BUT it has lots of different settings. You can make four single shots (so you could even travel around and capture four big cities on one frame!!!!). You can make (like pop9) one shot at the same time through all four lenses. There is the option to make two shots with it (first two lenses on top, second both on bottom of the camera) and, of course, the usual four shots in a row, but with three different time- settings (3, 2 or one second).

The All-Weather Actionsampler has a flash- automatic (you can stop it though) and needs two batteries. With some coloured plastic (filters) you can add coloured light to your shots easily. And because of the flash, you can use it indoors, too (not in series- mode if it is too dark). Just try and enjoy it!
