Whoa! Fresh, Fresher, Freshershest news from the folks over at the Lomographic Society International.
They’ve just announced the Lomography Spinner 360° , a crazy 35mm cam that spins on its axis to produce – you guessed it – 360° panoramic shots. How awesome is that? Check out how nuttily fun it looks:
To shoot, hold the handle steady and pull the ripcord. This spins the camera on its vertical axis, allowing it to capture a continuous 360° image of your environment. The results? Look and click to embiggen:
This being an LSI product, it comes bundled with extras in a premium package that will set you back – gasp – € 125.00! Pricey for a toy camera, but not wholly unexpected. Still, I imagine droves of toy camera enthusiasts going for it, myself included (If I can convince my wife to let me). No telling how much this’ll cost locally, but you can buy one online now here.
