Another image taken with the new Holga 120 Panoramic camera. This was taken in Dogtown, Gloucester, MA. A couple of early observations on this camera. Earlier test images I saw posted online didn't seem to have much in the way of that Holga edge focus fall off. But there appears to be significant loss of focus on both left and right hand sides of the initial roll I shot. Which is a pleasant surprise for me, anyway. Why would anyone want a Holga with crisp edges? There does not, however, appear to be any vignetting whatsoever on these images. If you like those dark corners, perhaps this isn't the camera for you. I thought the vignetting on the 6x17 Holga pinhole was too excessive for my tastes anyway (to the point where I sold it after shooting one roll). This camera is only a 6x12 format and I shot these images with the factory mask in place. Perhaps removing the mask would change the look of the corners and edges somewhat. The 90mm "optical" lens that comes with the camera seems to cover the frame quite well.
More to come.
BTW, click on the image in order to see it larger.

This image was shot with the new Holga 120 panoramic camera. Perhaps a bit more on that camera later.
Taken in Dogtown, Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Probably best to click on the image to view it larger.

Worlds Collide

This is printed on a piece of Thai Unryu paper with some lovely long paper fibers. I gave the paper a light coating of some clear matte inkjet precoat in order to boost the density and blacks on this somewhat translucent paper. The original image was shot with a Holga 120N.

Swept Away

Camera on a tripod in a 50 mph wind and a storm surge. I think the exposure was about a minute.
