Another package arrived from Hong Kong. A big grin welcomes the package – of course.
I bought a flash and 135mm film adaptor for my Holga 120N. For a cost around USD 30 (including shipping), it’s worth it – considering there are no 120 film available in all photo shops in Labuan. My next purchase will includes a box of 120mm film.
I like the humming sound the flash produces. The ready lamp indicates if the flash fully charged to trigger a flash – of course. It needs one AA battery to operate it.
The Exposure table at the back is really helpful. The horizontal column shows distances in feet and meters. The vertical column specifies film speeds in ISO standard.
The 135mm film adapter has a track set to direct the film straight. It’s useful to avoid the film from moving up and down. But I didn’t take off the rubber band to keep the film winding up straight.
This is how it looks like.
The package includes a back cover without the film counter window. It works to avoid lights leakage.
According to the manual, after every shot, wind up the Film Advance Knob about 24 clicks. From what I learned on the internet, some peoples recommended 34. So, I decided to mark the wasted film to mark where about the 24 and 34 clicks ended. It doesn’t create much difference, except for the interval that might separate one picture from another.
This is going to be fun!!!!
