Andrus_N owns many cameras, but his absolute favorite is the Sprocket Rocket. Find out why after the jump.
I have joined the Lomography Community almost one and half years ago. Since then I have ended up with 7 cameras on my shelf, some of them produced by Lomography, some of them from flea markets around the world.
I definitely take each one out from time to time, but my favourite is still my first camera – the Sprocket Rocket. Absolutely love the versatility that funky retro looking camera offers. The great angle of the lens makes it my favourite. It is also a very simple to use camera with multiple exposures and an option to expose sprockets or not. For me it’s also great that it takes half the amount of frames on one roll, cause you can have a new film in faster and take the full one to your lab.
My latest experiment has been reshooting previously exposed films in my Sprocket Rocket. First round in Fisheye and the second round in the Sprocket Rocket to fill up all the empty parts of film that the Fisheye lens leaves around the frame.
The Sprocket Rocket is a camera for those who are beginners or need a really easy to operate camera that can produce hundreds of different shooting options for all the opportunities you may have around you! Just don’t forget to load it with some higher ISO film for best results – the rest just comes down to your own creativity.

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
