Squeezing every drop outta a Spinner and a 35mm roll …
What you need …
A Spinner 360 camera
A roll of black electrical tape
A film picker (just in case)
Open up the back of the Spinner and tape up parts of that slot (where light comes in from the front). Leave only a part of it open and you are ready for the first exposure. Once you are done with that roll, rewind and then move the tape(s) to cover the earlier exposed area and this time … expose another part of the film. This might sounds confusing but you can refer to the attached photos … and I’m sure you’ll understand what I meant. There ain’t no fixed rule about how you should tape up the slot. Just let your imagination go wild and have fun! :D

Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
