    Hi, does anyone have any experience with these backs?

    I was going through flickr photos and noticed that a lot of polaroids made with a holga has severe vignetting. Yes, this is all apart of the appeal of a holga, but the vignetting is pretty severe, even for a holga.

    On Freestyle's website, their sample images show this vignetting as well. Is there any way to remedy this? I'd love to get a polaroid back for a holga, but the vignetting is too much for my tastes.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    I think the vignetting is because you're shooting onto something much larger than the standard roll film a holga is meant to take. Not really any way around it unless you change the lens and if you're going to do that, well, why did you want a holga in the first place? :wink:
