    On my rounds through the thrift store today, I came across what I'm fairly certain is the pre-Lomography incarnation of this camera ("QUAD Camera"on the package). I figured it was worth the two dollars. Like a moron, I loaded it with a roll of 400 iso without really inspecting the lens array very carefully. Lomo heretic that I am, I'd like to actually meter for the damn thing and possibly get a proper exposure.

    It seems like a fun diversion, but given what I paid for it, I don't want to explore the "dreamy world of lomo lifestyle" by burning up a roll of film. The package says the shots span one second, so I'm assuming the shutter is roughly 1/4 second. Any guesses for the aperture?

    thanks

    Seems to be f/8 according to most, but there are many models, so maybe it changes.

    Also, Goolgling suggests it's maybe 1/125 second fixed shutter speed.

    Cheers

    each lens has a shutter speed of 1/125, the overall duration of each shot is about 1 second. so:

    Lens 1 > wait > lens 2 > wait > lens 3 > wait > lens 4 = 1second
