Week 26 - Lomography Spinner 360° camera

This is my new toy! Although I've got a few of the Lomography novelty cameras, I've never bought one new before, the others were picked up cheaply in boot sales or charity shops.
This is a slit camera that rotates through 360 degrees and gives about 6 exposures on a 36 exposure 35mm film. It feels quite well made, and is really very simple, but would be time consuming to build myself (and probably beyond my construction skills anyway). I've already put one film through it, just to check it works, and the results are encouraging, now I've started to get a feel for its characteristics, I'll try to find some subjects the work well.
