Lomography Sprocket Rocket
24 March 2012
Conclusion: The Lomography Sprocket Rocket shoots wide photos on 35mm film with a unique twist—even the area around the sprocket holes is exposed. It's a fun toy camera, but not every lab can scan the sprocket area.
Conclusion: In terms of controls, you won't find many on board, just a shutter release, the ability to switch between "normal" (1/100th second) and a Bulb mode. It doesn't come with an inbuilt flash, but there is a hotshoe on top of the camera for mounting such accessories.
Excerpt: Analogue camera maker Lomography (or Lomo, to those in the know) has been driving the public's desire for retro cameras for a while now. Following on from the sucess of its first product (the LC-A+) and it's popular Diana F+ and Diana Mini models, the brand has introduced the Sprocket Rocket .
Summary: The latest offering from lo-fi-loving retromongers Lomography, the Sprocket Rocket is a 35mm camera with three standout features: a panoramic wide angle lens, a rewind knob and the ability to deliver exposures bedecked with sprocket holes at the top and bottom. 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).
