Holga 135 bc

Previous / Next

Here`s the first frame from the first roll that went through the new Holga. The camera is very similar to the medium format Holga when it comes to build quality, optics, and ease of use. All plastic, a pice of crap - and I love it already.
It took a while to get used to the shutter. It`s located on top of the camera instead of on the right hand side of the lens.
Framing is an issue when it comes to close focusing. I got fooled a few times - the subject I focused on didn`t show up dead center on the negative, but up and to the right. I should have known that. Forgot that the lens and the viewfinder "see" differently...
The film is 135mm, and that means you get a normal negative instead of Holga 120`s square.
Even though it looks (and are) cheap, I didn`t notice any lightleaks.
Unfortunately, I used Ilford Delta 400 film in it. The film is great, but it doesn`t scan well on my scanner. I`ve noticed it before. It might be because of over-developing the film. It looks pretty contrasty and "hard".
The camera might be a new favourite. I`ll just modify it a little...
