Splitzer for the Sprocket Rocket


How to convert the Sprocket Rocket’s lens cap into a wonderful Splitzer. Follow these easy steps, it only takes ten minutes!

You’re going to have to sacrifice your camera’s lens cap, so the first step will be to get used to that idea, because once you start there’s no turning back. But don’t fret too much, it’s definitely worth it and you can use the Splitzer as a lens cap anyway.


  • Sprocket Rocket lens cap.
  • Scissors
  • Cutter.
  • Black card (I used the piece of plastic that comes out of the instax cartridge when you load it and the protector comes out. It’s black, thin and resistant).
  • 10 minutes.

It’s pretty simple, as you can see from the photos. You cut the cap down the middle up to the outer edge. Be careful to leave about 2-3mm so the Splitzer doesn’t fall out once you’ve attached it to the camera.
Then cut a semi circle, the same diameter as the lens (not the lens cap) out of the card. That’s it.

It’s easy to use, just pop the card into the lens cap, attach it to the camera and start experimenting with quarters, eighths, halves. The possibilities are endless, have fun with it!:

I hope you like it and I definitely recommend doing it.

Lomographic greetings.

The Sprocket Rocket is the first wide-angle camera dedicated entirely to sprockets. And with dual winding knobs for easy multiple exposures, there is no limit to your analogue creativity with this panoramic wonder. See the Sprocket Rocket in our Shop!

    So much easier than the ideas I had before. First I'll try to get used to it, then I'll do my own Splitzer!
