WEEEEEE! Take the Lomos for a Ride! (Slightly Dangerous)


Hang on tight and get ready ’cause the kiddies are gonna scream when you take them to the amusement park. Snapping photos on roller coasters!

Fun, albeit dangerous, I took the Lomos not only to Kings Dominion, but also on the roller coasters! We had a grand old time together but I made sure to hold them tightly. After all, the Diana Mini is scared of heights and the Spinner 360 gets sickly dizzy.

A few words of caution though – you usually aren’t supposed to take cameras on roller coasters and the attendants will ask you to put the cameras away. That’s why I found the mini quite convenient – very easy to sneak on. Winding the film is somewhat challenging while looping and plummeting hundreds of feet, especially when Ms. Mini is being fussy.

And last, if you drop your cameras I’m pretty sure you won’t be getting them back, or if you do, they won’t be in one piece. Sad sad sad.

Check out Andrea’s ride on the BERSERK-er! Viking life started calm and turned into stormy seas!

    Great idea! If ever there was a time for a spinner (or a multi-lens camera), this is it!

    I love the spinner shots but I have to admit, I can't even go on a rollercoester by myself, let alone take a camera!!!

    I did this at the amusement park last time I went and they pushed down the restraints that hit your crotch and she hit my Holga in my pants. She looked at me funny and then asked me to take whatever was in my pants out.
