    Built me a Holga filter with an old crappy Softar I Bay 50 filter. Put a little dark nail polish around the edges to simulate the vignette look I got with my now melted Holga, so now I can make photographs with my Hasselga when I want to. Or is it a Holgablad?

    If ya drill some holes into your blad, you even get the all desirable light leaks just like with a real Holga.
    What me concerns with your camera handling techniques is how exactly you did end up melting your Holga (reminder to self: do not lend Ranger Bob any cameras :D ).

    You know, that's exactly what I was wondering... What happens to a Holga when it's reeeeaaaally hot? Thanks for trying that for me! :cool: :tongue:

    Tsk tsk tsk. That was careless. You should've kept it somewhere in the shade. Like underneath the engine hood after you've reached your destination.

    Take better care of your equipment!!! :mad:


    Haha :smile:
