When the Robot Camera Looks at You...

... you can't say no. How to resist those robotic three little eyes asking to take a photo of you and multiplied by three?

I was reading a beautiful location in Thailand by antibiotyx when some really curious, divided in three photos caught my attention. I did a bit of research until I found what camera had taken those pictures and ever since I couldn’t say no to that nice robot face.

I found the robot camera (full name: Disderi Three Lens Robot Camera) on e-bay and the first thing to take into account is its price: 9 euro with free shipping!! Secondly, it’s really easy to use: I went to the post office with a roll of film in my bag, I loaded it and I launched myself into the street. I must say that, if normally people look at you when you’re using any Lomo camera, when they spot you holding a white box with a green robot face on it shooting trees and people, you become your neightborhood celebrity!

Third: the results are great!!! The robot camera takes sequential photos but it isn’t as noticeable as with the Supersampler, for example, and it doesn’t have a flash, so it’s perfect for outdoor shooting. Portraits come out beautifully and landscapes and buildings pictures have this “artistic” touch that I love. What else could we ask for in a summer trip with our friends?
