Lomography SuperSampler

I have an orange camera with four lenses. It looks like this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My friend calls it the air freshener because of the sound it makes and the gesture I make when I’m taking a photo. You pull the ripcord, press the button and make a swish at the scenery or object you want to take. Up-down, left-right, zig-zag, circles… as you wish. You can take still or moving objects but make sure you have bright sunlight because this camera has no flash. The 35mm film inside would advance over the four lenses, giving you four pictures in one exposure, no apps required.

The thing with the SuperSampler is you wouldn’t know what you’ve taken until your film is developed. There’s a viewfinder but it’s useless. With Lomo, you shoot from the hip. Lomography is about having fun and experimenting.

I got it when Lomography was just taking off in Malaysia. This was back when films were still in use and digital cameras were just entering the market.

I’ve since then moved on to other toys. The last roll in this camera was first taken in 2010. The film has probably expired but I kept chugging along slow and steady till my last photo this year. These are some of the results.

The SuperSampler is great for moving objects.

Turning your camera left-right, right-left would give you this.
