Sprocket Rocket Pops in Blue

A 35mm camera which exposes sprocket holes too. It now comes in blue!

When Lomography launched the Sprocket Rocket I thought “I need this camera”. First thing I liked about this camera was it’s capability of taking panoramic photos with it’s super wide angle lens. The multiple exposure capability, forever built-in into all Lomography cameras, does a great job. This camera has 2 zone focus features, from 0.6 – 1 meter and from 1 meter — infinity. I must say, on the down side of the lens, you can change between two apertures, one represented by a cloud (f10.8) and a sun (f16). Nice.

I love the shutter button. It reminds me of my Diana, as it has the shutter button placed on the lens, same as Diana cameras. Having two modes, B – Bulb for long exposures and N – Normal (1/100th second) for shooting under the sun, the Sprocket Rocket is a brilliant production from Lomography.

Well, I bought the black and the SuperPOP Blue Sprocket Rocket. The black one was just for fun. The blue is for pleasure. Bringing this camera in a blue cover is the best thing Lomography had done. It’s a perfect camera for taking pictures at any party, club or croud and in any conditions. As the name say, Blue color SuperPOPS. It’s a perfect color for any hipster.

I must say, this camera works great with the DigitaLIZA 35mm for getting your sprockets properly scanned. Another thing you need is a flatbed scanner.

Also, if you do develop at a 1-hour lab, you must tell them that you’re shooting with a Sprocket Rocket. The other day, I have developed a roll of b/w film (shot with a Sprocket Rocket) in a 1-hour lab, and the sprockets were faded. Till now, I still don’t know the exact reason behind it.

The Sprocket Rocket is the world’s first wide-angle camera dedicated entirely to sprockets. And now it’s available in the freshest hues—blue, green, orange, and yellow. The “Sprocket Rocket Superpop!”;http://shop.lomography.com/cameras/sprocket-rocket-cameras features super wide-angle lens that captures the entire width of film and scrolling knobs for easy multiple exposures. Available in our Shop.

    Photographs with sprocket holes exposed are practically a dime a dozen these days but, of course, this wasn't the case more than 50 years ago. However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach." Find out the fascinating story behind this photo, as well as how and why he did it in this exclusive Lomography feature!

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
