    After the introduction of their rotational panoramic camera they now introduce a simple, fixed lens camera for 35mm film with an aspect ratio of 3 with 24mm image height.
    However the camera exposes the full film width, thus including the perforations and rebates (ratio 2.1).

    I like the look of it. The same effect can be had though loading 35mm into a Holga with a few bits of sponge and elastic bands...

    The website doesn't seem to be working properly - I can't find out what lens it has, shutter speed(s) etc.

    Looks like a fun crappy camera. I might have to get one.

    I have a LC-A+ and love it, this new panoramic camera would be very cool too I think, but I'd probably spring a little more for a Horizon. I could not rule out buying one in a moment of weakness though.

    I have a Horizon Perfekt, very different from this new gadget. It's not really an either/or proposition for me.

    This Sprocket Rocket is more like the dollar store version of an Xpan. :laugh:
