SuperSampler: A Cool Multi-Lens Camera

It is definitely a cool camera to own.

Undeniably, the SuperSampler is a very cool. At first, my black SuperSampler felt like a giant black rubber. Yet, it looks much cooler after using it for a while and so do my friends think. The coolest thing about the camera is that the film advances by the pull of a cord, instead of turning a wheel. However, one must be very careful to pull to avoid breaking the mechanism. Moreover, there are two speed of camera opening. All lens can be opened within 2s or 0.2s. This adds a degree of flexibility.

The good thing about a four-lens camera, over an eight one is that each frame is large and can capture more stuff.

Despite the fact that the shutter speed is high and the aperture is small, it can also work with low ISO film. I have tried it with Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 and yield the following result. However, a very sunny day is needed to avoid underexposing the film.

To play safe, it can be used with high ISO, e.g. 400 negatives

Unlike the Oktomat, it has almost no light leaks. Therefore, if people are looking for light leaks, this is not the camera for you.

The only thing about SuperSampler that holds me back is that it is hard to get the film rolling. It usually slips at the other end. I need to load it a few times to succeed.

The SuperSampler, the queen of multi-lensed cameras, is now in black. It takes four sequential panoramic shots on a single, action-packed 35mm photo. See all SuperSampler colors and designs in our Shop!
