I have longed for an paronomic camera with sprockets and style! Bring me to the Moon, Sprocket Rocket!
Although Lomography has provided tonnes of precious discounts in the past few weeks, I have still yet to placed the order for a Sprocket Rocket. Money ain’t falling from the sky, in spite of working as a part timer during my free time, being a student limits my time and expenditure to spend on Lomography. Buying a camera means working extra hours; working extra hours means lesser time to concentrate on studies. Besides, there are yet a lot more to explore with my two-month-old La Sardina before I am ready to get a new analogue camera.
In addition of the wide angle view of the camera provides, I love how the sprockets and film coding are exposed, which is so unique that could not be found from the other camera, except its twister brother Spinner 360. With it, I will have no longer have the problem to have beautiful portraits with my friends during gatherings. No more frowns or grimaces because of ‘intensive squeezing.’
No more stepping backwards, and surrender to beautifully-scenic view.
While Spinner 360 is as fantastic as Sprocket Rocket, from my ‘current’ economical point of view, 18 photos from a roll of film as compared to 8 from a Spinner 360, it is much more affordable to me. Another big plus is its sleek and charming look. If Lomography were Los Angeles Lakers, he is Kobe Bryant. But I don’t mind if there is a Great Santa who is willing to shove one (or even an LC-A!) inside my Christmas Socks.
