Caution in Winter - Your Spinner can Freeze!

2013-02-20 3

Be careful in the winter, because it may be that your Spinner 360° freezes. And that means it can not rotate properly. Read on if you want to know what you can do about it.

If it’s too cold outside, as for example in the winter, it may be that your Spinner 360° does not rotate completely. This happens when the rubber band is too cold, then it has no more right swing and then it can not accommodate all the 360 ° pictures more.

Here are a few tips to help you this will not happen:

  • Heat the rubber band and do it only on the Spinner, if you want to capture the image.
  • Let your Spinner heat up in a pocket or cuddle with it under your jacket.
  • If it does not properly rotate and you are traveling with a car, keep the rubber ring around ventilation and put on warm.
  • Avoid to take pictures in cold temperatures (I think this point you can quickly forget!).

If you do not mind that, then shoot with a lot of fun :)

    yes, me too! maybe a DIY rubber band which would be softer could solve the problem...
