Useable Images from the Holga 120Pan!

Woohoo! I got my first printable negatives out of my Holga 120Pan. I got this camera a couple of years ago. I’ve since run about 6-7 rolls through it, some iso 100, one 400, one roll of ilford Delta 3200. This is Tri-X 400, shot with the camera in B mode using a lazy click-click on the shutter release. The roll of 3200 shot at the same location but with the Holga’s one shutter speed came out too thin. Still thicker than most rolls but definitely sub-optimal. I’m wondering if the spring on this shutter is on the strong side making the shutter speed a bit on the quick side. It’s been so difficult to get this camera to work that I’ve been considering modding it with 90mm 4×5 lens that offers more exposure control as well as sharpness.

  1. Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Cheers

    1. I have no idea. I usually post updates on Twitter and Facebook, and I have some SEO stuff going, but I’ve never tried to get on Yahoo News. I’m a little surprised that you found my site that way.
