From the Manufacturer With the compact Colorsplash in your hands, you're ready and armed to repaint your whole environment. Everything that you see around you is subject to manipulation and capture through its sharp little lens. Rotate the integrated flash Color Wheel and choose from a selection of colored flash lights to toss upon your subject. The elements of exposure time, flash color, subject color, exterior light, and the manic curiosity of your lomographic eye come together to yield an endless number of potential techniques and outcomes. Remember, "colorsplash" is a philosophy. This is merely your tool to get there.
Colorsplash is now the next step in the continuing development of the Lomographic battery of instruments. In the Colorsplash world you can manipulate the colours on your Lomographs: With a colored flash by day or at night, by playing on the colored artificial lighting at night, by varying the type of 35mm film you use . If you are holding the Colorsplash Camera and/or the Colorsplash Flash in your hand, then you're holding precisely the right tool to really get down to some serious experimentation with colors.
From the beginning, the Colorsplash needed to deliver beautiful form in addition to function - a handsome conversation piece that feels just as comfortable under the adoring eyes of design-vultures as it does in the sweaty hands of a hard-working hyperactive lomographer. Our resultant Colorsplash camera is the product of these intense brainstorming, design, and caffeine-charged sessions. Fully conceived and developed by the hardcore Lomographers of our Lomographic Society, it will do for you what it has done for us: whet your creative appetite, open your photographic world, and compel you to see your environment in a brand-new spectrum of 12 tiny color gels.
Alongside a glossy plastic body lies the color-bursting electric soul of Colorsplash - the mechanical Color Wheel flash. A flick of the wrist is all that's required to choose between one of three different color filters or a standard white flash. When you're ready for a switch, two of the interchangeable filters can be replaced with one of the 9 additional filters that you will receive with the Flash. Snap away, and take photo 1 in blue, photo 2 in red, photo 3 with no color, and so on.
Colorsplash has two exposure controls: Long Exposure and Instant Exposure. A flick of the handy little switch alternates between these two modes. During Long Exposure, the shutter will stay open for as long as you depress the release button. The Color Wheel flash is synched for the end of your exposure, meaning that when you release the button, the flash will fire a split-second before the shutter closes. This allows for the greatest of Colorsplash effects - sharp, colored, flashed foregrounds set against dreamy, natural, blurry backgrounds. Instant Exposure mode both releases the shutter and fires the flash when you press the button; producing nearly monochromatic crazy-contrast shots or fairly normal white-light flash shots.
A modular three-piece formal suit for the Colorsplash. Crafted in stretchy synthetic fabric, the "skin bag" keeps your camera's most essential parts free from dust and very stylishly dressed. During transport, the top "skin" protects the lens and the flash "skin" covers the entire flash assembly. When duty calls, merely rotate the top "skin" down and stow away the flash "skin" on the included wrist strap. You're ready to shoot.
Coated in high-gloss molded white plastic, the Colorsplash itself attracts almost as much attention as the gorgeous photos it spits out. One half science fiction-futuristic, and one half 1960's retro-mod, its shiny coating and radical shape are pure eye candy to the hungry stares of onlookers and style-freaks.
