Sprocket Rocket: An Economical Panoramic Camera


The Sprocket Rocket is one of the most popular cameras among Lomographers. The camera is available in 9 beautiful colors and is capable of producing beautiful panoramic photos thanks to the ultra wide lens. Read on to find out more about this panoramic wonder!

The Sprocket Rocket is an ultra-wide camera that has a broader view than that of normal cameras made by Lomography. As mentioned before, Sprocket has a wide-angle view of 106°, thus we get photos almost as scenic as those from the Horizon cameras. You can choose from 9 beautiful colors that are popping with character.

The Sprocket Rocket is loaded with classic 35mm film (available in any camera store). In addition to the ultra-wide lens, the Sprocket Rocket is capable of producing photos with sprocket holes in them. You can also use a mask to cover up the sprocket holes. The size of the negative is 36 × 72 with the sprocket holes and 24 × 72 with the mask.

The machine is very wide, but is also light and very convenient to bring. Thanks to its ergonomic handle, you can grab the camera very well. In fact, it is almost impossible to get blurred photos with the Sprocket Rocket.

Long and multiple exposures are also a breeze with the rewind mechanism. Another “innovation” is the second wheel that rewinds the film, it can be freely used to advance or go back to already exposed frames.
