Take a Look Around and Set the Scene
Inspiration and the proper mind set are the first orders of business. Isolate your subject from the swirling image-mess around you. Now don't be shy--Oktomat's brick shape and wee mechanics are charming enough to make even a surly chap smile. Go on with yourself as if Oktomatic photography is an uncontrollable reflex--something which your brain does not choose, but initiates with its own will.
Fire! and the Oktographic Story Board SHOOT!! And 8 "clacks" later your subject is cleanly sliced into 8 little frames, boiled, and served. It's no Hollywood feature, but believe us, 8 frames can tell quite a tale. Envision yourself as a movie director on the world's tightest budget--armed with 8 scenes and 2.5 seconds to relate your micro-masterpiece. Among the many possibilities, you might grab an Oktographic snippet from: your best friend's romp in the park, a parade of pugs, the very moment that she said "yes," big Charlie's unfortunate bicycle lesson, passionate hedgehogs, or a boozy sea-cruise. Whatever the occasion, choose your scenes, motivate your cast, and coordinate your cinematography into a print-bound and Oscar-worthy Oktomatic vignette.
Okto-Kino and The Lomographic Brain Trust
Your fresh-from-the-lab shots require one addition to reach their full potential--a potent injection of Oktographic animation. Upload them to the OKTO-KINO application to Lomography web site, pop into your folding director's chair, grab some butter-slathered popcorn and peel your eyes as your Oktomatic images are instantly transformed into live-action 8-frame cinema. And, by all means, don't keep this little screening all to yourself--it's a solemn Lomographic duty to share your images with the other maniacs in our online community.

The funny thing about the Okto is that, instead of being mad that the thing had gone bad so quickly, we mused about how interesting it would be for someone to take this idea and execute it in a more robust build. The image quality is better than you'd expect from one-eighth of a 35mm frame, and with glass lenses and some critical internal parts made of, say, metal, you could have a ton fun. Or you could just spend another 33 dollars.
Notes: The eight consecutive clacks really sound more like a grind, don't let this worry you. And there is a small black piece on the top of the camera - the film advance leaver should stay to the back of this, you may have to pop it back into place once in a while. All part of the low tech fun!

A fab set of 8 mini-shots for each frame. Good for action shots if you use 800 ISO speed film. Uses 35mm film.Published 14 months ago by Mike's Fire

Shot a few rolls of film with this, it was fun. The 4th or 5th roll I shot didn't turn out so well. Don't know if I broke it (if so, it breaks really easily), but I haven't tried... Read morePublished on December 5, 2013 by TripSupport
