      Comments about SuperSampler Fixed Focus 4-Lens Panorama Camera Kit (Black):

      We are professional photographers, with professional equipment, but we also do a lot of personal photography. We're really into shooting with film cameras, and we were so excited to try out the SuperSampler. The packaging was great & we loved the photo guide that was included. THe camera feels substantial (I was afraid it would feel cheap), and it's already gone on a trip to the coast with us. Loading film was easy & all of the pieces seem to be working just perfectly. We're waiting to develop the first roll, but we're so excited. A great, FUN camera.

      Comments about SuperSampler Fixed Focus 4-Lens Panorama Camera Kit (Black):

      This camera is fun to use, light, and simple to control, however you are kinda limited to use it only outside and in the day time. The absence of a flash, and with its shutter speed, indoors and night is not a possibility. The pull chord film advance is the only feature I don't like in this camera, it seems fragile and I'd prefer the conventional wheel method. [...]

      I love film, but this camera is my hit.
      Ot has a great effect, is durable, easy to use and with great results.
      It doesn't have flash so you will have better results with an ISO 400 film.

      not a true panorama camera

        Comments about SuperSampler Fixed Focus 4-Lens Panorama Camera Kit (Black):

        I bought this camera, thinking it would be a cheap panorama camera. It actually makes images that are 1/4 of a 35mm frame, not wider than the frame.[...] The good part: the pull cord and operation are straight forward and easy to use.

          I use this just for fun, artsy photos. It takes great, vibrant pictures outdoors. The opportunities to take interesting photographs is endless! Even just rotating the camera on one object for all four shots makes great photos. I only wish that it had a flash so that it could be used indoors. I tried taking photos in a well-lit room and they still didn't turn out. Overall it is a fun camera, though!

            I use this lomo as an extension of my body. It really is compact and easy to use & carry. The best thing about that camera is, it looks like something else so you can take shots without being noticed. Since there is no flash attached, you should at least use a 400ASA film.

            Fantastic idea, poor construction

            Comments about SuperSampler Fixed Focus 4-Lens Panorama Camera Kit (Black):

            I was initially attracted to this camera for its unique design and the promise of some artistically charged photographs. Overall it is a fun, playful camera. It's fun to use and the results are good, too.

            Construction wise, the camera could be better. To advance the film you have to pull on a cord attached to a rubber disc (which is part of the reason actually taking photos with this camera is so much fun). However, this cord is very sensitive. After running only two rolls of film through the supersampler, I pulled too hard on the cord and broke the spring inside the camera. If you purchase this camera, be careful!

            Thankfully, the manufacturer was very reasonable (and the camera is covered under warranty) and I was able to receive a replacement camera. Even so, I am highly disappointed with this technical problem!

            The technical issue of the camera is really quite a shame since it really is fun to experiment with.

              Comments about SuperSampler Fixed Focus 4-Lens Panorama Camera Kit (Black):

              The product is very easy to use and requires nothing but film. The pull cord can be a bit unmanageable and is breakable. However, if you treat the cord gently, the camera will give you no problems. Taking beautiful and interesting photographs is effortless. I'd recommend this product to all.
