Multiply each shot’s fun and action-stopping excitement by a factor of eight with Lomography’s multi-lensed wonder the Oktomat!
Not often but sometimes, it’s a bit hard to tell a story in one frame. A lot can happen from the moment you click the shutter to the time it closes. A perfect way to tell some extraordinary analog tales then is to neatly divide a frame into eight parts, vividly illustrating moment after moment in glorious detail. This power of discourse lies in the Oktomat whose 8 lenses each see things different than the other and have their own characteristics and quirks. Don’t be fooled by its timid plastic casing. Underneath its exterior is the power of freezing 2.5 seconds worth of action!
Whether you’re action crazy or a pop art fanatic, the Oktomat has got it for you! The Photos page is chock full of 8-part tales you can marvel at. For now, here’s a small gallery of the most interesting ones to date. Enjoy!
