First I did not know what to do with this yellow-black plastic cam, which I’ve got as a promotional gift when I subcribed to a photo-magazine.
This camera use a double fade out lens and a multiple exposure technique, and this makes it possible, to make one part of the pic dark, and to image an other motiv on the other part of the pic.
But as sheep’s heads on a dog’s body are not really my style, put it away and forgot it for a while. Then I had the idea, to make double exposures, when turning a camera upside down,and this camera seemed to be the right one. O.k., little black shutters are a bit shaky, and you have to hold them on her place, but it works.
Now my split-cam is used so often, that it lost the color of her SP! as you can see.
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.
