Lomo super sampler problems

Hi
I saw you answered a similar problem to mine about the Lomo Supersampler. My one also doe not appear to be working after being in its box for a while (no mechanical whirring noises!) I noticed you said you were based in the UK and were able to sort out jams like this -I was wondering how much you charge to fix this type of problem as if it isn't too much (and too much hassle for you!) I would like to get it sorted.

Many thanks,
Vicky

It doesn't sound like my lomo fish eye 2 is taking a photo at all...


Your camera is a cheap chuckaway "toy" camera, designed by LMO's own admission to only last for about six rolls of film.

Unfortunately, in the West it's seen as a fashion item, so a camera which costs about £6 in Hong Kong (where I bought mine) costs up to ten times more in the UK/Europe/USA.

This means that they can and do break very easily and are not designed to last. Repairs are not carried out as there are no spare parts, if the camera breaks under warranty you just return it to LOMO's official distributor for a warranty "repair" and they chuck it in the bin and send you another.

Note that if you are in the UK then you will additionally have rights under the Sale of Goods Act to claim against the UK retailer who supplied it for a refund or replacement. If they offer to repair it, refuse (for the reasons previously given) and just demand your money back or an exchange.

Sorry that this is not the answer you hoped for, but perhaps it provides you with alternative ways to overcome the problem. Please note that I am definitely not anti-LOMO, they have my full support for bringing back an interest in "real" photography, but they have no real control over the grossly inflated prices charged for their products outside of China.

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.

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.

I can't seem to click to take a photograph


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.

Flash on a supersampler


You can fire a flash independently of the camera while you're taking a photo, but no flashes can be "hooked up" to the camera itself.

Lomo supersampler.... how do i get the film out?


on the camera you have a round loop on one side and a rectangle loop on the other side. next to the rectangle there is a narrow black slide button. press that button then open the camera. on the bottom where the film on the outside of the case is a black button that hold the film in place. slide that outward then remove the film.
