When I first bought my Supersampler I stuck to the advice of the manual and used ISO 800 film, but I started to wonder if there was another way.
One day I decided to shoot some slide film for cross-processing. The local camera shop had some Kodak E100VS film on sale, way below the recommended ISO of 800 for the Supersampler. This is where “pushing” comes in. “Pushing” involves developing the film longer than usual to compensate for low light. Each “push” of one “stop” moves the film up one ISO. I took my Supersampler shots on 100ISO film to a pro lab and had them push the film two “stops”, from 100 to 200 to 400 ISO. These are the spectacular results:
Try it out with your favourite low ISO film and let me know what happens!
The SuperSampler, the queen of multilensed cameras, is now in black. It takes four sequential panoramic shots on a single, action-packed 35mm photo. See all SuperSampler colours and designs in our Shop!
