SuperSampler: Anywhere You Like

Everyone knows how wonderful the multi-lens cameras are for the summer, and the results are always perfect when you provide the camera with an intense source of light. In the Summer it’s very easy, we must take into account the Winter sunlight, the first rays of Spring or the last remnants of Summer as in the mid October.

This light plastic camera has four panoramic lenses and two shutter speeds: four photos in two seconds or four shots in 0.02 seconds. The only drawback is that it hasn’t got a flash, so it’s only used outdoors. Sometimes,once in a blue moon, you can take pictures indoors but always using a high ASA like 800, and the result will appear grainy.  A trick to ease some of the grain is use black and white film.

The SuperSampler was my first Lomographic camera, that’s why I have so much affection for it. My main obsession is the use of different color filters for each of its objectives. I want to improve my technique day by day, and so far these are the results I can offer. If you place color filters on the outside, just stick them on with handy duct tape. The downside: it’s possible that the colors are not fixed in a frame, and get results like these:

On the other hand, if you use each type of gel on the inside, you have to cut it to size and make sure the heat doesn’t create bubbles. Don’t forget to use at least 400ASA. If you skip the step of removing the bubbles you get the following results:

It is definitely a great user friendly camera with many possibilities. Just choose the speed, pull the ring and start having fun with this camera!

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!
