• The fisheye view is the way that lomographers live and see life. Imagine everything above, below, and around you streaming through your eyes and compacting into a nice and compact little ball. Think about your best friend's nose being vacuum-sucked into your lens, all the while their eyes and forehead are s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d back. Visualize yourself bowled over by the devastating colors that only fine glass can deliver. The world's first honest-to-God Fisheye camera is here and waiting to swim into your life. Open your heart, stretch out your hands, and grease up your fins.
It seemed like a cool novelty gift from my wife. However after only three rolls of film, it stopped advancing. [...]
Great Price, Great Pictures
It's a very fun camera to use, even though the flash is SUPER BRIGHT (practically blinding!) haha
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my younger brother, who I am helping develop an interest in photography. I already own several Lomography cameras myself, and I thought the Action Sampler would be the perfect camera to get a preteen boy interested in film-based photography. I was right; he loves it and takes it everywhere, asking people to jump around or dance for him so he can take interesting shots, catching things in motion, etc. The camera is very easy to use for a photography novice and can produce great results with little effort. I was able to find it at Adorama for a price that was significantly cheaper than anywhere else, which was also a plus.
I bought this camera for creative shots as an additional to my other cameras and to have a different view away from the digital pro that I'm use to. I wanted something more artistic to separate the pro commercial photography I do from the artistic. The camera is beautiful, a nice design and it really funny... when it is working. I had to return this model twice. The first I bought worked for 2 shots, then it stopped taking multiple pictures and the flash wasn't working. So I returned the camera [...] I was able to shot the first roll completely, what a fun! but when I loaded the 2nd roll, I took about 3 shots and it stopped working, just as the first one (you hear only 1 click (it takes only one of the frames) and the flash never works). It made me feel really bad because I was really looking forward to use this camera a lot, but as you see, I wasn't able to. Now I don't know if I should buy a 3rd one, or spend my refund in a completely different camera. I'm really not convinced about this model.
I love this as it is so much fun, and the images unpredictable and experimental. Easy to use and makes me a very happy camper!
