4x Action Cam

2011-03-10 5

When I began to discover the world of Lomography, I found several fairly inexpensive analog cameras that, along with shipping, it cost at 15 €.

Among them was the Robot 1, Robot 2, Robot 3, Robot 4 … and now I present …

The 4X action cam.

It has a lens cover that makes it easy to protect the 4 lens like you see in the pictures above.

It is always sold with a case and brief instructions in English.

Show the movement slowly, giving you enough time to play with her. The bad (or good, depending on how the work) is that the 1 st lens gathers plenty of light and the 4th lens needs a lot of light and usually the last sequence is very dark.

Here is an example:

Removing the jargon…

It’s a cheap camera, light gathering photos and divides the frame into 4 the way we like. The quality is not very good, but it is always a good idea before you buy a good camera. ;)

    Nice cam and fotos. Actually, when you shoot hi-speed film, the first frame may be overlghted, but the last frame will be just right. So, I don't see this as a bad thing ... kikikiii... <:))

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
