Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Every picture tells a story when you take it with this funky photographic tool. The Oktomat rapidly fires through 8 tiny lenses in serial succession over a span of 2 seconds. The 8 frames are composed together, producing a mini photo vignette of each print. A lomographic camera that begs experimentation and creativity, the multi-frame format captures movement in interesting, pop-art ways. To get a sweeping close up of stationary subjects, move the camera toward the subject while clicking the shutter. Moving subjects call for good framing, which you master as you go. The flash-free camera requires sun lighting for best results and uses standard 35mm film (and standard processing). Includes wrist strap and full instructional brochure. Collapsible viewfinder. No focusing. Imported. 4-3/8x3x1-1/4".

From the Manufacturer

Swing your head around and imagine your two eyes multiplying into 8 winking-in-a-2.5-second-serial succession. You, my friend, have tasted only the very beginning of the Lomography Oktomat Compact 35mm Camera with 8 Serial Lenses pleasure. With one touch of the shutter button, this camera's 8 tiny lenses fire in turn, creating a multi-frame mini photo vignette. Upload your masterpiece to lomography.com and create a full-action MiniMovie! Uses standard 35mm film and standard processing.

Take a Look Around and Set the Scene
Inspiration and the proper mind set are the first orders of business. Isolate your subject from the swirling image-mess around you. Now don't be shy--Oktomat's brick shape and wee mechanics are charming enough to make even a surly chap smile. Go on with yourself as if Oktomatic photography is an uncontrollable reflex--something which your brain does not choose, but initiates with its own will.

Fire! and the Oktographic Story Board
SHOOT!! And 8 "clacks" later your subject is cleanly sliced into 8 little frames, boiled, and served. It's no Hollywood feature, but believe us, 8 frames can tell quite a tale. Envision yourself as a movie director on the world's tightest budget--armed with 8 scenes and 2.5 seconds to relate your micro-masterpiece. Among the many possibilities, you might grab an Oktographic snippet from: your best friend's romp in the park, a parade of pugs, the very moment that she said "yes," big Charlie's unfortunate bicycle lesson, passionate hedgehogs, or a boozy sea-cruise. Whatever the occasion, choose your scenes, motivate your cast, and coordinate your cinematography into a print-bound and Oscar-worthy Oktomatic vignette.

Okto-Kino and The Lomographic Brain Trust
Your fresh-from-the-lab shots require one addition to reach their full potential--a potent injection of Oktographic animation. Upload them to the OKTO-KINO application to Lomography web site, pop into your folding director's chair, grab some butter-slathered popcorn and peel your eyes as your Oktomatic images are instantly transformed into live-action 8-frame cinema. And, by all means, don't keep this little screening all to yourself--it's a solemn Lomographic duty to share your images with the other maniacs in our online community.

What's in the Box

Lomography Oktomat camera, hand strap, multi-lingual instructions, and full documentation.

HASH(0x9c46766c) out of 5 stars Freaky Fun April 4 2005
By C. Copp - Published on Amazon.com
This is a cool addition to your camera bag, it is a cooky cool way to create "Art"! 8 little shots, you'll need to pay for the largest size prints allowed by your budget though to get the full 8 piccie effect, on each frame. As with all Lomo effect cameras the colours are skewed, the pictures are not bitingly sharp (getting a high res 35mm film helps though), and the effects are very much hit and miss, but the hits are superbly bizarre. Once you see the effect you'll be hooked, it is really a basic wind, point and click, hear the classic "whirrrrrrrrrzzzzzzzzclick" sound and you are done! It works best with a moving subject, crowd scenes, pets, kids, etc.... I took some shots at a hippy market in Totnes, UK and the results were great! Really odd and strangely unwordly. I took some straight shots with a Nikon D70 too and although these were interesting, the Lomo brought out the spaced outedness of the scenes, the colours and movement are pure Lomo. I love it and so will you too, for this price it is worth the gamble! Pop one in your pocket and whenever you come across a scene with bright colours, movement, shifting patterns the Lomo 8 lens camera will come into it's own. Shoot low to avoid 8 pictures of the sky and the tops of people's heads. Keep the wrist strap away from the front too.

HASH(0x9c467a74) out of 5 stars Really fun and different June 10 2005
By Courtney - Published on Amazon.com
I've had this camera for about 3 months and I think it's very unique and is definitely worth trying out. The only thing that I can think of that is a disadvantage is that it doesn't have a flash- you must take all pictures in sunlight or they don't turn out. It's really fun to take pictures of things like birds or cars on the highway because you get a completely different image in each of the eight images. I would recommend it for anyone into art.

HASH(0x9b85b390) out of 5 stars Fun If You Have The Right Attitude Nov. 20 2010
By David L. Staples - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Our Oktomat lasted for three rolls - not too poor a record, really, considering that we had by then spent about as much on film and processing as on the camera. Near the beginning of the fourth roll, the shutter began firing when the film advance lever was operated, and after a few hilarious attempts to take pictures like that, the shutter stopped operating entirely. Now the Okto's an honored element of our display of retired cameras. But we weren't disappointed, as our expectations had been commensurate with the 33-dollar price. Attitude is everything, see. For the record, we also have a couple of Diana Fs (one still works) and two Blackbirds (both still work). You can have a lot of grins with cheap cameras.

The funny thing about the Okto is that, instead of being mad that the thing had gone bad so quickly, we mused about how interesting it would be for someone to take this idea and execute it in a more robust build. The image quality is better than you'd expect from one-eighth of a 35mm frame, and with glass lenses and some critical internal parts made of, say, metal, you could have a ton fun. Or you could just spend another 33 dollars.

HASH(0x9c467c54) out of 5 stars Lomo Love March 26 2009
By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
This is my second purchase from the "toy camera" line and I must say - it's tons of fun, especially if you follow the lomographer's mantra and shoot from the hip. The Oktomat is a tough little camera -it bangs around in my purse everyday just in case I happen upon something interesting to photograph (or something uninteresting that I can photograph in an interesting way). I love the occasional light leaks and the slight dreamy blur of all the photos. This camera is not for the perfectionist - it's for the experimental crowd. And I agree with some other reviewers - the best photos are of moving objects.

Notes: The eight consecutive clacks really sound more like a grind, don't let this worry you. And there is a small black piece on the top of the camera - the film advance leaver should stay to the back of this, you may have to pop it back into place once in a while. All part of the low tech fun!

HASH(0x9b8842dc) out of 5 stars If you use it well... April 13 2007
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
I must admit I was apprehensive to purchace the product after some of the reviews of the OKTOMAT, but I have learned that it is an extrememly sturdy product. If used correctly, the OKTOMAT will not break. It is an incredible product and the images it produces range from awesome to so-so. Experimentation is key. It is difficult to get a bad picture from the OKTOMAT. I do suggest signing up with the International Lomographic Society once your camera arrives. It is a great place to store and share your pictures. The OKTOMAT as a whole is a great product that can make anybody a photographer.
