When people think of film, they usually associate it with the puncture holes running along the sides of a negative roll of film.. These days, the iconic little sprocket holes we’ve all come to know and love, are experiencing a real resurgence in their popularity. If you're shooting 35 mm and you want to expose the sprocket holes too, you have to scan the entire film strip which can be a bit of a hassle — trust us, we’ve done it a fair few times. But — after a bit of head scratching — we came up with a solution to the creative conundrum with the Sprocket Rocket — a camera with a lens so wide, it exposes the whole width of 35 mm film! Clever, eh!
Because the Sprocket Rocket has a super-wide lens, it’s great for shooting panoramic photos. You can use it to capture sweeping views and sprawling fields, lush landscapes and street scenes, and all your shots will be adorned with the unmistakably analogue look of exposed sprocket holes..
When the lighting is just right or the scenery around you is poppin’, shoot some panoramic portraits. Have your subject stand in the middle of the frame, or carefully compose your photo to make sure it is balanced. There’s plenty of space to fill in when you shoot with a super-wide camera like the Sprocket Rocket, so get exploring!
For unique results, take advantage of the Sprocket Rocket’s gear, which allows you to rewind and remix your photos. Take one shot, then twist the knobs before taking another shot. It's the first analogue camera to offer this cool feature!
