Take Arty Panoramic Film Photos With The Lomo Sprocket Rocket

Featured Film Photography News Point and Shoot

Are you looking for a hip and original gift for the camera nerd in your life? The Lomo Sprocket Rocket could be just what you’re looking for. It’s a retro-styled 35mm film camera that takes wide-angle panoramic photos that include the film edges and sprocket holes. And if there’s one thing a hipster photo geek loves more than film, it’s film photos with sprocket holes! They give photos a really unique, raw artistic look. In the past, arty photographers who wanted sprocket holes in their photos had to hack a Holga medium format toy camera so it could use 35mm film. That’s still a fun option as half the fun of the “Plastic Fantastic” Holga camera is the crappy plastic lens. But with the Sprocket Rocket you get glorious sprocket hole-framed panoramic photos right out of the box. Bonus – the Lomo Sprocket Rocket costs less than $100, making it one of the few cameras most of can actually afford to buy as a gift.
