    Lomography Spinner 360?

    Has anyone bought this camera yet? I takes a photo all around 360 degrees, so I guess it qualifies as a panoramic cam too, haha.

    I did not even know that this camera existed. When was it introduced?

    I'll get one once i can locate the manufacturer of this thingy (i'll start looking in China), so i only have to pay a fair price for it.

    I'll give a shout when i do, so you too can get one for a fair price.
    And if you find out who makes these before i do, please do the same!

    Visited the website after looking up the word "lomograph". The thing looks like a Tibetan prayer drum meets Avatar. It's either a toy, a gimmick, or a real camera. What?
    Can't be sure what the perceived or actual benefits are, but in gadget-happy Japan (or wherever) it probably shares fourth place in "must have" popularity with an iPhone.
    PS: Q.G. I reckon it's Made in Chinee. What are the odds!?

    Unfortunately, I think it's a lomography brand camera.
    @AgX, it was introduced to the website fairly recently.

    Lomography is a shop. Not a maker.

    So there is somenone that makes this stuff i'd like to find.
    I'm sure i can get them to put my name on a batch too. And i'm also sure that a small batch of, say, one hundred of them would cost about the same as that shop is selling them for a piece.

    They do have their own branded film and other products. I agree though, I hope someone can find out who makes them.

    Yes, i know.

    You could buy Seagul TLR cameras in Germany too, until one shop decided to do something about it. After that, you could buy "B.I.G." TLR cameras that looked (and performed) just like Seagull TLRs, except for the name on it.
    They went up in price quite a bit too. .

    "Lomo" once was a brand of cheap, and also not very good photoproducts.
    This "Lomography" is a trader, cashing in on the consumeristic hype that the Lomography movement turned into.
    If you want to make a fortune, watch for the next big hype, and then register the name it goes under as a trademark.

    Typically I don't care much for the toy/lomo side of photography. However, the spinner does look like a lot of fun. $145 is a bit steep though.

    Prices on the web site is outrageous.... Portra 400 VC is 10 bucks a roll? (it doesn't appear to be pack of 3 like all others...)
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
