Question about Lomo Supersampler 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

2 Answers

I can't seem to click to take a photograph

This is my first time using my super sampler.
i have no problem loading the film and then take my first shot by pulling the string thingy.
so, the problem occurs by the time i try to take the second ones. the string thingy works but the click that has a name "now" on it doesnt seem to click like it did the first time. when i push its a bit hard or didnt quite as flexible as the first one.
please help how to get this super sampler running.
is it the film inside was jamming or maybe after the first shot i suppose to be doing other step to it or what?
i really have no clue with it.
thx a lot. please respond ASAP.

Pulling the string doesn't take the picture, it advances the film. Press the button on top of the camera, you'll hear the shutters go, and then pull the string. Just make sure the film is taut when you load it, and that you're not yanking on the advance string too hard.

I have an old Nikon Lite Touch Zoom 100 AF camera and I am having trouble loading the film. Can you use Kodak Advantix APS film in this camera or should I be using manual loading film instead?


This camera uses 35mm film, not APS film. 35mm is a larger format, giving MUCH better results, at the expense of having to manually pull the leader across to the take-up spool each time you load a roll.

How to rewind roll film in Lomo Action Sampler 35mm Point and Shoot Camera?it stucked


To rewind the film on your camera you push down on the rewind handle on the top left of the camera (as viewed from behind) and turn the rewind handle clockwise until no more resistance is felt.

Once the film has been rewound, slide down the catch on the left edge of the camera body and open the door on the back of the camera.

Courtesy of alfredklomp.com you can download part one of the manual here and part two here.

If after all this, the camera is broken then it cannot usually be repaired: it's designed and built as cheaply as possible as a toy camera and is only designed to last for a few rolls of film. Spare parts are not available, but some broken parts can be adapted or fabricated from whatever is to hand to do the job.

Based upon the question you asked, my reply should have solved your problem so please take a moment to rate my answer. If the problem has not been solved then add a comment instead and I'll be happy to provide further assistance.

My action sampler doesnt work properly.. i have loaded the film and shoot correctly, i guess :d but the result is not in four panels, but just like an usual film cameras (in 1 panel only).. what's wrong?...


The problem is your lab, assuming you got prints, the lab printed them like normal, But look at your negatives, you will see the 4 panel images.

Best to print an Actionsampler photo from the internet or lomography website, just print a rough one on regular paper, 4x6inch, and take it to the lab to show them how the prints should be. They should re-print from your negatives for free because they made an error the first time. It may have been an automatic adjustment by the machine they use.

The shutter button does not appear to click down and the lense does not open so no picture is taken. Usually it makes a sound and you know the picture has taken. HELP MEEE????


I had a similar problem with another brand of this type of camera. I would click the shutter and hear it open but it would not go through the series of four lens exposures unless I manually turned the film advance wheel . I think it may be because the motor isn't strong enough to draw the film across and trigger the shots. cheap plastic, ya know. I never got the film developed but im interested to see if it got anything at all.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero


Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.

Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.

My super sampler wont click after i take my firs shot??


Pull the string to advance the film. As long as your film sprocket holes are lined up with the sprockets in the camera, your shutters will fire the next time you press the shutter button.
