No Rocket Science
We have to admit, we will not win the Nobel Prize for technology with this camera but for sure the Nobel Prize for the best concept! When it comes to technology, we decided to keep the Sprocket Rocket as simple as possible: a plastic body, a super wide-angle lens, a shutter and light. That’s the whole secret behind a camera that takes technology into a new age with its simplicity. While other cameras only use the core of the exposed area and leave out the precious rest, the Sprocket Rocket makes the most out of the light which creates a very special effect. Crystal clear in the centre and blurry towards the edges, the photos produced by the Sprocket Rocket are fascinating light catchers. The Sprocket Rocket is more than just another analogue camera – it’s simply a blast!
