my lomo robot from hong kong

okay, so i finally gave in to temptation and bought this disderi three-lens robot camera on ebay from this seller. it came all the way from hong kong!

when will the lomo-diction end? as if the 4-lens actionsampler AND supersampler weren't enough! that reminds me, i have about 4 rolls of film that needs processing!

the camera itself cost $6, and with shipping, it all came to around $13. it came within a week! the customs form says that the camera cost "HK$90". i wonder how much it really was?

i was intrigued by the scalloped, 3-in-one action photos that you can have with it. i saw some lovely samples from here and here.

the instruction sheet was entirely in chinese. (click image below for gargantuan view) good thing the illustrations are self-explanatory. it's really not that hard to use, since i already own an actionsampler. the only english on this piece of paper was on the other side which read, "this camera is not a toy."

it's made in china, of course. why don't they sell this kind of camera at dollar stores around here? virtually everything sold there is made in china.

you've been bitten by the lomo bug!
the more you write about it though, the more i'm yearning for it myself, which is very very dangerous. ^-^

yes, odette...and there seems to be no antidote for it! haha. not that i mind, but i just have to be extra careful not to splurge on more lomo cameras and/or films!

the photos you put up on your blog have a very lomo feel to it. you have magical photoshop powers. :P
