The Sprocket Rocket and LomoChrome Purple: A Psychedelic Duo

For over a decade, both the Sprocket Rocket and LomoChrome Purple have been fueling analogue users with unimaginable creativity. The Sprocket Rocket, with it’s 106° field of view, exposed sprocket holes, and other experimental features, launched in 2011. Our beloved LomoChrome Purple came two years later, allowing users to transform the way they see the world by turning everyday colors into something magical. Though the film stock has gone through different formulas since its first iteration, it’s always been a fan favorite for Lomographers looking to shake things up in their pictures.

Many have used the Sprocket Rocket and LomoChrome Purple in tandem to create enchanting panoramic photos. Today we want to highlight just how incredible this combination can be.

LomoChrome Purple and nature always pair up really nicely as the typically lush greens turn into a psychedelic mixture of purple hues and the blue sky somehow gets a saturated look that could be deep greens or a washed-out white. Using the Sprocket Rocket in nature allows you to immortalize the wide and open landscapes as far as the eye can see with its 30 mm focal length. The pictures here show that when this combination is shot in nature, a dream world seems to be created with every shot.

Though nothing is stopping you from taking portraits with the Sprocket Rocket, it is not always the first thing that comes into mind when using this camera. However, with the camera being compact and a minimum focusing distance of 0.6 meters, or almost 2 feet, taking that selfie has never been easier! Combining it with the unique colors of LomoChrome Purple and each selfie will be out of this world!
