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.

    Lomographer and Multiple Exposure Expert Hodaka Yamamoto on Creativity

    The name Hodachrome is one of the most popular in the Lomography community. It has become synonymous with the acronym EBS, which stands for exposing both sides of the film. These multiple-exposed photos have an unmistakable style in the vein of ecstatic carnivals and exaggerated dreams. The man behind the vivid shots, Hodaka Yamamoto, talks to us about the habits of a good experimental photographer.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
