Super sampler

I can express what a disappointment this camera is. I wanted it and I was thrilled when I got on in a camera mystery bag at christmas.

David has to show me how to work it, and I played with it, but I didn't bond at all. I was not comfortable using it and I revereted to me iPhone to do the same thing. So it sat with hald a film used in it. On my trip part 2, I took it with me to use the rest of the film and maybe sell the damned thing. Its fun if you are 6. Or can shoot children but I am not 6 and I can't shoot random children this modern society frowns upon such things.
So I struggled.

If you are an active person or photographs children or have dogs or cats who are active then this maybe bfor you.

SO imagine me releif when I send in the film.

And my disappointment when the fild came back. It was an ISO 400 film, it was used outsiode excep three shots which I am not counting in my assessment. The Agfa Vista plus film was a good batch, I have used it in the Cmena cameras with success. Sooooo

Why did I get results like this???

Sticky shutter. One shutter, the last one stays open too long. Piece of crap.

Poor qualty and as this is my second defective camera from Lomography.com, I am wondering if my loyalty should lie elsewhere. If I had bought it from the Lomo store here in Sydney then I may have been able to return it but Lomo in HK syas I have to return in within 14days. Hmmm
Mind you if you meed their 14day guideline, they are helpful and happy to pay for a courier to replace the camera with a new one. But couriers are a pain in the arse. You sit here all day and they come at 1600 but if you leave for the post office at 10, they come at 1003hrs.. AARGGHH hate couriers. hate hate hate. I am very lucky in that the PO acts as y business address and the ladies there know me and sign for me. YAY! Benefit of a small town.

I am wondering of the other cameras I have from them are defective and I will be stuck with them. I am sad and crawl back to my 1954-1975 soviet russian built cameras.
