Sprocket Rocket is easy to use.The lens is 30mm, has two focus modes (0.6m to 1m and 1m to infinity) and two apertures (one for sunny days, one for cloudy conditions). You don’t have to think too much, just set the focus, choose either sunny or cloudy and you are ready to shoot. That’s it, and my friend, worry free.

So far, the Sprocket Rocket never disappointed me. For me, personally, it is a must have camera for all Lomographers. Here. I will brief why Sprocket Rocket never let me down.

For the lomograph above, I use Fuji Astia with ISO 100 and this one I took during evening. I set the camera in sunny day aperture. The lomograph came out wonderful, the light came in just nice, not too overexposed and underexposed.

How about in the mall with low light condition? Don’t worry, Sprocket Rocket can handle it. Tips for beginner out there: Sprocket Rocket loves ISO 400 film, they work well together. I took the lomograph above with Fuji Superia Xtra 400 film and set the camera in sunny days aperture. As you can see, the lomograph is not underexposed.

How about in really dark condition, just small amount of light or during night time? Well, in this case, don’t forget to bring your tripod along, it’s fun to take picture during night time, there’s a lot you can do during night. For instance, making a light trail, or even star trail. Be creative, Sprocket Rocket does not limit your creativity.
