How do you make the most out of the Sprocket Rocket? Here are ten easy ideas to shoot rockin' sprocket-holed photographs!
Start off with the basic: take advantage of the Sprocket Rocket's super wide angle panoramic vista by capturing breathtaking landscape images.
Shoot a Portrait
While this camera is great for capturing sweeping landscapes, it's also an excellent camera for taking portraits. Do it!
Be a Minimalist
Make use of the frame's wide space by isolating your subject to one or a few certain parts for dramatic, minimalist images.
How about switching to a different view? Shoot your subject in a vertical view by flipping your camera.
Do the Reverse
Amp up your double/multiple exposure game with the Sprocket Rocket's reverse gear feature—a first among analog cameras!
Mix It Up
Fill your frame with faces using the reverse gear, the MX function, or both! Experiment with these features to maximize your camera's creative potential.
Master the Lighting Situations
Since the Sprocket Rocket has fixed shutter speed (N (1/100) and B) and just two aperture settings (cloudy (f/10.8) and sunny (f/16)), always be wary of the lighting conditions so you can use film in the appropriate ISO.
Stay Classy in Black & White
Rock your sprockets in monochrome. Use black and white emulsion for a timeless twist on sprocketed panoramas.
Switch on the Bulb
Light streaks and light paintings? No problem! For long exposure and light painting aficionados, the Sprocket Rocket has a Bulb mode. Use it well.
Be a pop artist and shoot repeating subjects. By doing this, you're weaving patterns into your prints!
