Recently, the Lomography Sprocket Rocket Teal 2.0 made its debut–continuing the evolution of one of Lomography’s more iconic cameras. When it was first launched in 2011 by Lomography, the Sprocket Rocket Teal carried a couple of firsts in its plastic body; it was “the world’s first panoramic wide-angle 35mm camera dedicated to sprockets” and was the first film camera to be fitted with a reverse gear to “rewind and remix” photos with. Token to its look, it exposes the entire area of the roll of film too–including the area around the film sprockets.
Basically, what this means is that with this camera you can take super wide snapshots either in single or multiple exposures with film perforations exposed at the top and bottom. The original Sprocket Rocket came in black. Later on, a line of neon-colored versions aptly named SUPERPOP! was launched.
Now, Lomography brings forward the update with a new, swanky look and an updated name to boot – the Lomography Sprocket Rocket Teal 2.0.
But if you’ve come here expecting new features, I’m afraid you’re in for a bit of disappointment. Except for the new teal-and-silver color it now sports, the Lomography Sprocket Rocket Teal 2.0’s specs are exactly the same as its predecessor:
