52 Cameras: Week 28 part 2 — Holga 120S

This camera found a new home through my Etsy shop:

Ilford XP2 Super 400 black and white film. Scanned at 4800 DPI, millions of colors, and converted back to B&W in Photoshop. Resized to about 12%.

None of the flash photos came out. I think the sync is off – the flash is over then the shutter opens or the shutter closes and then the flash goes off. Still, I got 10 exposures. That’s better than I expected.

I came upon a couple of ravens eating a rabbit. Every time I got close a car would come by and scare them off. Finally, one of them would just fly over to see if I was still there. Silly, but a fun way to spend a quiet half hour.

I may try again with this camera. I got a Polaroid back for it but I didn’t get the viewfinder frame or the .3 diopter lens. The frame is easy to work around but if the light doesn’t hit the film at the right distance, which sits further from the lens in the Polaroid back, nothing will be in focus. B&H Photo has the adapter but it costs way more than the camera is worth. We’ll see how much a piece of equipment sitting there without being used nags at me.
