Have you always regretted that you need to leave your Actionsampler at home every night?
As of now, light paintings, passing cars at night, and long exposures are not a problem anymore.
You only need:
1 Action Sampler (of course!)
a very small Phillips screwdriver (in most precision mechanics kits)
a small pair of pliers
15 – 30 minutes of your valuable time
You now have the Actionsampler before you. With the back open, you can see 3 screws in front of you (2 left, 1 right) and another hidden beneath the rewinding crank. Remove all the screws and keep them somewhere safe.
You can now disconnect the black inner part of the outer part. (Do not forget to remove the Film reel) This may well be a little fiddly job, but you can do that with a little patience.
After a while, there should be 2 separate parts in front of you (watch out for the lenses).
Now loosen screws 1 – 5. (As seen in the picture)
Pay attention to the small springs.
Now you can separate the part with the lenses from the rest of the camera. As mentioned, paying attention to the springs. They should stay where they are. When you’re done, you have 2 items in front of you again. It should look like in the photo.
*Take away this smaller part and remove the spring.
Then remove the plastic disk and return the springs.
You have now done the most difficult part. It is time to assemble. So just repeat steps 1 – 4 in reverse order.
If your Action Sampler reassembled, put a little bit of sticky black tape over the lenses and open this tape if you want to take a picture.
Make sure that your camera is secure and unmoving when you do long exposures. Your Actionsampler is so light that you can stick him even with double-sided tape to a fence or a road sign.
Now wait until dark and use your new Actionsampler!
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
This beautiful camera features such ability to let users choose and switch between 35mm or 120 formats! Shoot more, save more! Get 15% discount on Lomography Films when you purchase film with the Lubitel camera!
On my birthday, I climbed the holiest mountain of Bali on a genuine pilgrimage. Walking towards Pura Besakih is also a tale about Balinese Hinduism, which is a singularity in Indonesia. So tighten your sarong around your hips and stick with me on this spiritual passage through the gates of heaven.
