SuperSampler + Match-Box = Collage


Transform your supersampler into a beautiful collage machine with the help of a match-box, scissors and patience.

To get your a little bit interested, here are the results. They look like smb just ripped the paper images into pieces and put them together, the double-exposure in the middle make you able to show the movement, that’s why the photo looks full of life. Enjoy the collages, which are finally done without any glue and sticky crap! lol

First of all, if it’s not done yet, rip off the plastic stuff which is separating the lenses inside your supersampler.
Use scissors, fingers, your brothers teeth..just anything you can come up with.
The result should be like this.

Than, take a box of matches, light up just a couple of them, put on some Bon Jovi music, feel like some 80s rebel\cowboy, do the dance.
Anyways, here are the matches.

The third step is to rip of the tiny picies of match box with your muscular hands or scissors.
The example.

Put em into your SuperSampler!


The SuperSampler, the queen of multilensed cameras, is now in bright blue. It takes four sequential panoramic shots on a single, action-packed 35mm photo. See all SuperSampler colours and designs in our Shop!
