I’ve gotten a bit behind in writing up about rolls of film, I sent off the biggest batch yet on April 4th of three rolls of 120 from the Diana and 1 roll of B&W 35mm from the Holga – the first roll through it.
Overall I was really pleased with the results from the Holga, it seems much easier to get things right than with the Diana. From loading the film through to just things like focus. Aperture is a little more limited. But I like the look. It certainly helped I think to have an ‘event’ – a friends birthday – to takes pictures of.
From the Diana things again a little mixed. I’m happy with a couple of the shots.
Currently in the mix shooting wise: I shot B&W 2x35mm (1 Holga, 1 Zenit TTL) + B&W 1×120 for a developing course (more to come on that in a post), a colour 35mm Holga and a colour 35mm that was in a Centon DF-300 (copy of a Minolta X-300) that my Dad was given at an auction sale. There were about 4 pictures on the roll when I found it so I’ve shot the rest and we’ll see how they go! I’m fully expecting the film to be expired so who knows if it’s usable, but might be interesting. I quite like the camera and it came with 3 lenses which are very nice. It’s got a nice meter in it, which I am learning to appreciate given the Lomography cameras.
