With this technique you can make a splitzer and/or Cokin type filter holder for your Lomography Sprocket Rocket.
Our fellow Lomographer Gibri has already given us a cool and inexpensive way to do a splitzer for the Sprocket Rocket in her tipster, but if you have some Cokin filter accessories lying around, you may want to try this.
You will need:
A 62mm adaptor ring for Cokin type filter holder
A strip of felt
And, of course, a Lomography Sprocket Rocket
The adaptor ring is slightly wider than the lens barrel on the Rocket so you will have to fill some of the empty space so that the ring fits snugly in the camera. I glued two pieces of felt as you can see in the picture:
And now the ring stays in place :)
If you want to use some Cokin type filters ( like ND filters for long exposures) you just need a filter holder – and some filters ;)
To make a splitzer you must glue a piece of black card or paper to the ring.
To split the image in half all you need is to align the paper with the bolts at the front of the lens which are right in the middle.
After trimming the excess you have a splitzer!
All the materials are fairly inexpensive and you can buy chinese made cokin filter type rings and holders cheap on ebay.

Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week.

Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
