The Accidental Auto-Shutter Button


Accidental mistakes are always – I repeat – always loved here in Lomography!

Once there was this case over my Fisheye 2. I was happily excited loading a 35mm film over the back part, covered it and looking for some people to shoot with. The moment I pressed its shutter of it stucked! It doesn’t pop back anymore!

So what I did is that I advanced the film on to the next frame but every time I advance it, since the shutter button is tucked inside, the shutter clicks automatically and I accidentally take pictures. I wasn’t able to find this out since I was forwarding the advance film and hearing clicks of the Fisheye 2 a dozen of times. What I got is some mysterious fisheye-panorama in a crazy way!

Check out the photos! This has been an accident! Good thing the shutter button popped back out and all was back to normal again.
