From the Manufacturer
Go beyond the confines of standard panoramic landscapes and capture everything around you in one 360-degree photo with the Lomography Spinner 360° 35mm camera.
A standard panoramic picture yields a 120-degree perspective--the familiar view that we love, stretching wide to cover details running from left to right. Taking inspiration from a futuristic concept in the '80s, the Spinner 360° operates by holding it in one hand, and pulling the cord with the other and releasing it. In one split second, the camera spins around in 360 degrees in its own axis, capturing every detail around you!
The result is a extra-super-wide angled breathtaking image, 4x longer than the standard landscape picture that you know. As with all Lomographic products in our lineup, this camera allows you to experiment with various techniques for multitudes of shooting fun!
- Horizonal View Angles: 360°
- Vertical View Angles: 66°
- Shots per roll: approximately 8 (on a standard 36 exposure roll)
- Shutter Speed: Relative shutter speed equivalent 1/125s ~ 1/250s , slow speed manually
- Aperture: f/8, f/16
- Standard tripod mount
- Built-in bubble level
- Lens: 25mm; Fixed Focus: 1m ~ inf.

The Lomography company needs to provide a conspicuous link to the list of scanners that will work, and clear instructions on how to load the scanner and produce the jpeg files. I nearly lost my mind, questioning whether it was even possible to do with the scanner I bought. Their Customer Service could have been more helpful. The customer service at Epson had no idea of what I was talking about when I mentioned Lomography's DigitaLiza film mask.
Once you get it going it really is a lot of fun, and the pictures will be great to share with friends and family included in them. The camera is easy to use. The colors in the photos are a little funky, but that's part of the fun, plus you can intensify them or touch them up digitally once they're scanned.
Be ready to buy a film scanner and to devote a lot of effort to the scanning process if you can't find a lab that will do it in your town.
First things first, yes, you will eat up rolls of 35mm quickly with this camera. One 360 degree photo burns through about 4 standard frames of 35mm. Second, get yourself a Digitaliza 35mm mask. Trust me, your standard masks that came with the scanner aren't going to capture the sprocket holes that this camera exposes. Speaking of scanners, make sure it's a backlit type. Standard flatbed won't usually scan film anyway. I'm personally using a Canoscan 9000F and it does the job. However, and this can be pretty important. Make sure to upgrade your scanner software. The OEM probably won't know how to deal with sprocket holes in the scan. Mine didn't. I had to upgrade VueScan and I've heard SilverFast also does the trick.
Yes, it might seem like a lot to go through, in addition to now having to work with film but if you're really interested in something different, it'll definitely be worth the extra effort.
BTW, learn to use the Polar Coordinates effect with your scans.
Fun and quirky.
Simple to operate.
No electronics. No batteries.
Any photo place can process the film (Target = .95 per roll) ... but (read the related Con)
Photo quality does not compare to a DSLR. But it is what it is.
Any local photo place can process the film, but very few can scan it to disk... or if they can, they cannot scan the sprocket holes. Consider scanning yourself, and purchasing the Lomography DigitaLIZA 35mm Scanning Mask Kit. (One reviewer suggests masking tape, but I don't want to gum up the glass).
Film gets expensive.
If you don't process the film yourself, be sure to tell whomever does, "do not cut the film."

I was excited to receive this puppy after playing with an older model. To my surprise, this is a newer model and does not jolt my wrist around when shooting!Published on February 25, 2014 by Erin Nelson
