    I bought a stock Holga 120N for about 30 bucks.

    Here are two shots I took at one of the military band's concert.

    I shot HP5+ pushed to 1600 (ID11), however I think I want to try Delta 3200 pulled to 1600 next time.

    (Also, these are scans from 8x10 Multigrade.)

    What do you guys think?

    Nice, never seen concert photos made with a Holga. The lens seems to have flatten the high contrast that is inherent to stage lighting.

    Maybe a little bit...

    But I also printed the negs split grade which were pretty contrasty.

    On that note....the Japanese do an exceptional job lighting.
