She's here Pt.6 - POP with Lomography Sprocket Rocket SUPERPOP! Yellow!

She's been here for a week already, but I didn't really have the time to take a "proper" product photo. Well, now it's time to be presented to my newest and certainly most POP-ing Lomography addition. Meet the Sprocket Rocket SUPERPOP! Yellow!

I’m gonna tell you a secret now: It is actually the first camera that made me feel the real lomography: snap away and think later!

    @af-capture Thank you! Much appreciated!
    @crevans27 Thank you too! I knew it was going to be a SUPERPOP! version, but I had to choose which one particularly.

    I love mine although it is a black one :-). I just don't like scanning the film with my current scanner....

    @putchu Thank you! All of the above are home scanned with the help of a Canon CanoScan 8800F, without Digitaliza and the like. The film was left in the middle if the 120 scanning mask, and the frames were made larger than the actual photos, in order to include the inter-frame gap. Then a black point was selected in the unexposed area, and scanned. The extra space was trimmed later with the help of Fspot in Ubuntu Linux, but that can be done with almost anything. No PP on the actual Contrast/Colour was applied though, only crop and rotation where absolutely necessary.

    @adash Thanks for the help. Getting a new scanner from Santa so I can finally scan 120 film and I will try this. With my current scanner my film gets blue when I dont use the scanning mask that came with it. I can correct, but it just takes too much time and effort ;-).

    @putchu The scanner software will be confused by the sprocket holes and/or any extra space around film. It will consider it to be the black level, and make horrible results. You have to manually select the black point for a reason, since the film base has a distinctive tint and thickness. The results are far from perfect, as you can see, but still workable. See how the sprocket holes are the same colour and tint like the unexposed film area on the feet photo for example. Well, if you don't select the black point in the unexposed areas of the film, the base becomes light blue (the reverse of light orange), and the whole frame gets blueish and very low in contrast.
