AND THE AWARD GOES TO … THE LOMOGRAPHY SPINNER

We knew it all right from the start but now it is official – our whirling Lomography Spinner 360° is a winner! It was selected by the independent jury of the European Consumers Choice Award who honored the Lomography Spinner 360° with their precious award. After testing it thoroughly, looking at its delicate features and considering its innovative qualities, consumers from all over Europe and the jury itself decided unanimously to admit the Lomography Spinner 360° into its noble circle of winners of 2011.

“THIS PRODUCT IS BEAUTIFUL, TIMELESS

Amongst the other design beauties, the Lomography Spinner 360° cuts a fine figure. The testers only found smooth words for their experience with the most freewheeling camera on this planet. Some said: «This product is beautiful, timeless. », others noted: «Who can create that? The answer: Lomo! ». No wonder that the Lomography Spinner 360° reached 9.7 points out of ten possible which shows that this spinning miracle stood the test in all three categories with flying colours. Our hearts are filled with proud that this innovation did not only conquer Lomographer’s hearts all over the world but also the independent minds of the European Consumers Choice Awards jury.

WANNA TAKE A SPIN

The Spinner 360° is a fully mechanic camera that captures infinite panoramic shots on 35 mm film with a spectacular spin. First class as well as wild style 360° photography has never been this accessible and thrilling. The Spinner 360° even exceeds the human perception and captures a full 360° vision which puts the Lomographer in the middle of a new lomocentric universe. Set in motion by pulling the trigger-cord with simple manpower, the rubber band drive lets the Spinner 360° revolve on its grip in perfect shutter speed. Featuring two aperture settings, this freewheeling fellow is the perfect companion for panoramic adventures indoors and outdoors. Fed with 400 ASA 35 mm film for best results, it captures everything in its sight on a frame multiple times longer than a conventional landscape picture. A panorama-go-round of the special kind for Lomographers that love to spin!
