    Anybody know where I could get some 120mm film for a Holga? Anybody recommend some film that they have used before with a Holga?

    Any half decent camera store that has film should have at least a few rolls of B&W 120 film...

    I have shot films from iso 100-400 in my holga

    If you are interested in shooting B&W you might want to look for BW400CN, which is kodak's chromogenic B&W film that gets developed in colour chems (C41 process)

    Edit: 400CN might not be so easy to find in 120 format.....not sure...

    So I was just looking through some shots from earlier in the year as I want to get a few scanned. All except one are on slide film and this one seems to have colours bleeding(is that a correct term?) into each other. It's a night shot and some of the black areas like sky seem to have absorbed colours from neon lights etc, kinda looks like a fog effect.

    It's in the prints & the negatives and while I'm sure once scanned it'd be correctable but just curious what might cause it.

    Hey guys! Didn't notice this thread until just recently. I just skimmed through it all and i'm delighted to see such a lovely range of film cameras.

    From a quick browse it seems there's mention of 617 formats but does anyone shoot in pano format here? Would love to see some 617 slides! :D

    I have a 35mm adapter for my Mamiya 7ii which gives me xpan sized negs (65x24mm), 617 is just a dream atm for me :(

    Some what of a long shot, but does anyone have a Minolta SRT101 that they would like to sell? How about a 50mm or 58mm F1.4 ROKKOR lens?

    Any other classic SLRS or fast lens range finders?

    my other half got interested in a Diana camera we saw at a photo exhibition today, but rather than grabbing that, for th emoment I've cleaned up a couple of OLD voigtlanders I had in a box, and we'll put some film through them. There's a Vito CD, and Vito BR, so you can choose between having metering, or having a rangefinder :) (though I suspect the selenium in the meter might be cactus by now)

    Also in the box were the original boxes and manuals for the cameras, including receipts, various other old cameras, and original manuals and advertising material including price lists for Olympus Pen and Trip 35 cameras :)

    I've had the stuff for a while, just haven't poked through the box for a couple of years. I got it all when my grandfather died about 3 years ago, turns out he was a keen photographer when he was younger. There's a photo in the box of him taking a photo with one of the old folding cameras that's also in the box. Judging by how old he is in the photo, I'd say it was taken in the mid-late 1930's....

    Nice little cameras those Voigtlanders are. I have a vito BL thats over 50 years old but still looks brand new. They age pretty well hey, yours look nice.
    Are you going to try and put a roll through them?
