Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I purchased the Holga Starter Kit, which came with a roll of medium format 120 film. However, the film roll does not specify what processing it needs: C-41, D-76, etc. Do you know what film type the kit includes so I can give my processor an answer to develop my film?

If it's color negative film it will be a c41 process film. That's just about all there is!

Do i need to rewind film after taking a picture on my diana f+ ??


If you are using 120 film (medium format) you only need to advance the film as far as possible. Then remove the film from the camera and wrap the excess paper around the roll and seal.

When you finish all the pictures on the roll of 35mm film you will need to rewind the film completely before exposing it to light. You can do this by taking the camera in a pitch dark room, removing the film and turning the knob on the top of the film roll until the film has been completely wound back into the the roll.

How do I upload pictures from my Holga 120 CFN onto my computer ? is there some sort of cable that can do it or what?


This is a film camera, you cannot download from it. You need either a film/slide scanner or a regular scanner to scan in the pictures themselves. Sorry.

The winder knob broke on my holga broke how do I fix it?


Sorry but without examining the camera it's impossible to give a definite answer.

What is certain is that all Holga and Lomos are very cheaply manufactured from poor quality materials and that spare parts are not available as they're not designed to be repaired. Almost all of thenm state that the camera lifespan is about 12 rolls of film and on some models it's as low as 6 rolls. The low quality is not really an issue in their home markets as they sell for peanuts in China, but as they've become a fashionable item in the West the importers put them in fancy packaging and charge silly prices.

Most commonly the winder knob either breaks off or the gears inside strip. Sometimes the first fault can be temporarily repaired by drilling and inserting a screw. The second fault cannot be realistically fixed. Unfortunately, most Holgas are made from plastics which are incompatible with most glues.

Sorry to disappoint you, but your only realistic fix is likely to be to replace the camera. There are plenty of old non-professional 120 film cameras lying unused, all you have to do is ask on FreeCycle or Freegle. Such models will usually be better built and have better lenses and light seals though, so you may lose some of the lo-fi unpredictablity that Holgas and Lomos are popular for.

This is due to a poorly manufactured and designed camera: it IS a Holga, after all...

What's happening is that the film advance is allowing the film backing paper (which has the numbers printed on) to slip relative to the film. All you can do is to learn when to compensate by advancing the film a little more than the numbers indicate.

Given that most Holgas are only designed to last for around ten to twelve rolls of film (they can last far longer though), you might not have to put up with the fault for much longer.

Check the starter mounting bolts.. If greasy remove and clean them 100%
The bolts serve as a ground to operate. another tip.... If you have a big block engine a remote starter bracket should be attacted as well. Its a torque brack to prevent the starter fron twisting causing the drive housing from cracking.

Film problem for my holga


Black film as in underexpose, after you have them printed?

If you open a roll of 120 film:
Remove the little tape holding to the film.
Place film onto Film Spool Studs.
Pull film out from film leader and thread to Take Spool.
Turn until Arrow Line on film aligns with Start Mark of Film Holder.
Close film cover or back.
Advance camera to Zero (0). Now you are ready to shoot.
Just rememer what film speed your are using.

Hope they are helpful.

My Kodak EasyShare C315 needs formatting.


For all the camera users whose cameras won't format...they can't accept all the info on a 2 gb memory card... install a 1 gb card...worked like a charm for me! C315 and others were made before the 2 gb card. Only 1 gb cards work in the older cameras.
