Lomography - Part 3

I received a couple of questions since my last posting with regards to the image quality of the images taken with the Spinner 360°.

I have to make it absolutely clear that the Spinner 360° was designed as a fun camera and is in no ways suitable for producing high resolution images with great pixel detail. Scanning the film at 6400dpi is not going to yield better results than scanning at 300dpi. Being a 35mm film camera, it's ability to produce low grain images using high ISO is also very limited. Current digital camera technology in my opinion already way outperforms film. However film will likely still be able to hold its own as an artistic medium for a long time to come.

The sprocket holes you see are not added in post production but represents how much coverage this camera has on a roll of 35mm film. It is a cool feature of the Spinner 360°

For this shot, take note that I did not use the -3 ND filter. Again, I'm using the Spinner 360° with the Spinner 360° Motorizer.

Shoot Conditions
Date & time of day: 27th March 2012 @ 9:00pm
Weather conditions: Indoor, low light levels.

Camera Settings of Spinner 360° + Spinner 360° Motorizer
Aperture: f/8 (cloudy icon)
Film: Fujichrome Provia ISO 400
Motorizer: Continuous spin mode

The Spinner 360° Motorizer's slow rotational speed made it possible to shoot this indoors, using ISO 400 film. I opened up the aperture to the maximum of f/8 and removed the -3 ND filter mentioned in an earlier page.

The restaurant was much darker than expected and the resulting image had to be enhanced during the scanning process. Based on the camera settings and the ISO 400 film, I guess that you'd get a good exposure if shot in brightness that is similar to your typical office lighting.

Scanner used: Epson V600 Photo
