Lomography's Sprocket Rocket Camera

By Conde Nast Traveler Monday, December 20 05:23 PM

Don't get us wrong, we love the convenience of digital cameras. But remember the excitement of seeing your prints for the first time, when you shot on film? The new mini Sprocket Rocket might tempt you back. It's as bite-size as your compact digital, with a 35 mm wide-angle lens that's perfect for panoramic shots. And its retro appearance wins style points.

The Sprocket Rocket lends some extra creativity to your picture-taking experience, too. It exposes images over the entire piece of film, including the sprockets, which gives the edges of your prints a film-reel vibe. It's also the first camera fitted with a reverse gear, allowing you to take a shot then rewind to superimpose another picture over it. The result? Perhaps a streaky neon Tokyo scene over a field of poppies, or multiple perspectives of the Brooklyn Bridge, all in one photograph.

And since there's no preview, half the fun is waiting to see how your images turn out. There's nothing like a little delayed photo gratification.
