Has anyone tried their hand at Lomography? Just bought a Sprocket Rocket and would welcome any advice anyone has to give

Got myself a Lubital 2, Lomo have recently re- introduced them and the new ones cost bucket loads
I know I got one somewhere in the depth of my garage wish I could find it.
And its small
I got this sprocket rocket camera which takes panoramic images and leaves the sprocket marks on the negs. Have some well expired film in the fridge too so it will be quite interesting to see what comes out.
Be careful if you have the film developed commercially, as the frame size does not correspond to normal, so the machine might chop your pictures into normal neg strip size.
Make sure they are aware of that.
Good luck....if you've ever seen the Hipstamatic app, that's what I'd expect your images to look like!
I just love the Hipstamatic app. Imagine digital imaging software that could do all that?

The Russians must think the west are mad, the have to re-manufacture (very poorly) a camera that just about does it's job. The Russian oligarchs must be laughing all the way to the bank as a consequence of this western hipster/vintage fashion.
That is a very good advert don"t you think for the Lubitel? Lol
Yes and like the sprocket rocket you can expose over the sprockets when using 35mm film.
Could there be a return to film I wonder or has digital spoiled us. Life is a whole lot easier but to me at times I miss film
I don`t know, but the impossible project has done quite well.
The pin hole camera looks interesting.
I have an original Lubitel (and also an original Voigtlander Brilliant that the Russians copied) and a couple of the Lomo LC (?) Minox type cameras, one of them boxed and unused. All of them were bought in the days when Russian cameras were cheap.
Must dust them off - the Lubitel in particular always gave excellent results and 6x6 negatives have a certain charm to them. Sadly I haven't had a wet permanent darkroom for years so it will take some digging to find all the equipment but it might just keep me occupied over the winter.
For those born to the digital era I can assure that NOTHING compares with seeing a printed image emerging in the developer bath. Magic!
