Split - Cam - It Looks Like a Joke but Will Make You Laugh With Joy

This camera is pure plastic- and that's what I like. You combine totally different things on one shot and still come out ok.

I was shocked! I asked a friend to bring me the SplitCam from Lomo-Shop in Vienna and holding it in my hands, my friend began to laugh. She asked, what I was going to do with that light piece of plastic? I wondered the same.

But if the SplitCam can not, then no camera shall call itself a toy camera! It is made completely of plastic, looks cheap and is a posiouns yellow colour.
But don’t judge a camera (book) by its cover.

I insert a film and the fun started. You can shoot and shoot and shoot without believing what you do. There is an mx- function (multiple exposure) to use the heart of SplitCam – so you can cover parts of the lens with black plastic and make double- exposures! This allows you to combine totally different things. Combine an upper and a lower part, hold your SplitCam upside down but do not use the black plastic to cover the lens to make double exposures…

I don’t know the technical facts, but I use SplitCam outdoors preferred in sunlight and this cam is lots of fun for less money (I think it is the cheapest cam in lomo- shop) and so a good present for friends. Easy to use, light, yellow :D Try it and you like it.

A SplitCam tip:
Look for funny things you can combine. Give melons to a friend, combine cheese and feet, writings and persons,….

    the splitcam is great to chuck in your backpack for a bright sunny day - perfect for an extended walk somewhere new and (maybe) interesting...

    well, the shots are yummy, not camera decorates the photographer, but a photographer decorates the camera

    Just bought one of these! a couple of my friends are saying that it looks too cheap to be a good camera, but I definitely have faith in it.
