Oktomat - 8 Reasons for Having One

Undecided about what multi lens camera to buy? Think no more. Here are eight good reasons for buying the red hot oktomat

1. It´s the plastic essence of Lomography. Small, red, resistant, it fits every pocket, every purse, every glove compartment.

2. It’s the UFO amongst your friends. Everyone is gonna stare at it with their open mouth thinking… wtf?

3. It’s a summer made camera. Don’t know if its the color, or the moving magic, but this baby was made for summer days, sunny glimpses and shinning mementos.

4. It’s for beginners. No one fails with this camera, seriously, try to do it and you’ll lose.

5. It’s for pros also. Go back to the origins and don´t fucking think about it!

6. It’s for animals, kids… and all moving subjects really, perpetuating movements, jumps, flies, dives and all of such kind.

7. It’s for making movies. LSI, give us Oktokino back pleeeease!

8. It’s for collectors. Stays sharp in any given shelf – if you can let it be quiet.
