Lomo Supersampler

Haha... Probably you already know, my new toy is a Lomo supersampler. That's how it looks :D Well, photographs are deceiving. It looks cool, doesn't it? In reality, it looks plastic & cheap. See that black square at the top? That is the 'viewfinder', which fell off before I started to use the camera. That buckle at the bottom? It is the film advance string. 100% mechanical, not a single piece of electronics is there. I ordered it from Hong Kong, the total cost (inclusive of shipping) is ~SGD$92.00. Kind of $$$$.

The supersampler was designed not by the camera manufacturers, but the Lomographers themselves. They came out with the design, put it into production in a factory in Shenzhen, China.

A lot more Lomo cameras can be found at the Lomo Asia site:
