Here’s a novel way to take a panoramic photograph. When you pull the rip-cord attached to the Spinner 360° from Lomography.com, the camera spins all the way around on its axis and captures a 360-degree panoramic photo complete with the super-cool over-saturated effects that you’ve come to love from lomography, even the sprocket holes are exposed for that retro look.
The camera’s design is pretty simple using a rubber band drive to power it. It uses standard 35mm film and can create a panoramic image that’s four times longer than a conventional landscape photo. The makers have even created a set of standard shooting techniques including the overhead spin, timescan, rollercoaster, and manual exposure. Have a look at some images created by the Spinner 360° after the jump.
