One Night Stand with the Supersampler

The Supersampler's multi-lens feature was one of the few things that had me enamored with Lomography. I'd admit I wasn't able to get enough mileage from it to give an in depth review, but here's my take!

The Supersampler is deceptively simple. You’d think that all you’d need to do is to wind, point, and click, but there’s more to that than meets the eye. Like its 4-eyed sibling the Actionsampler, its specialty is action. It’s where the camera thrives and shines.

If you’re going to go with still-shots however, it’s best to visualize things in columns, as that is what the Supersampler sees. I’d advise to stick to single subjects too, as having a bunch of people/objects will cram the shot and make in a crowded mess.

My gripe with this camera is what makes it unique as well – the ripcord. It’s the reason that I only got to shoot one roll of film with it. I’ll admit I may have been too aggressive in ripping it, and doing it while on a roller-coaster might have been a lapse of judgment on my part. I really wish though, that in the future we can get a version with a regular film advance, as the Supersampler still remains one of my favorite cameras.

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