    Holgas are very inexpensive plastic cameras, and they have fixed lenses. No such luck putting another lens on a Holga.

    Good grief! I lied! On the Freestyle web site, it says the new Holga 135 Pan has interchangeble lenses! But that's all it said: no details on the mount.

    Both the Holga Wide Angle and Telephoto lenses simply fit over the existing lens, on the regular and TLR Holga models.

    The Holga Fisheye lens comes in two different versions, one each for the 120 and 135 cameras, there is also a glass fisheye lens for the 120.

    Since the lenses on the 135 Panoramic are removable, I'm not sure the above lenses would work with it, but if the diameter of the lens is the same as those used on the regular/TLR models, then they might work.

    They do have Close-Up and Macro lens adapter sets, both of which require the focusing ring to be set to infinity when using either.

    I'm curious to know how many panoramic photos can be obtained from a roll of film (12/24/36 exp.) using the 135 Pan.

    A good rule of thumb is to half the number of exposures. I think my xpan gets like 17 shots on a 36 exp. about the same on my noblex.

    Actually, now that i think about the math, the Panoramic exposure count would likely be the stndard exposure count divided by two minus one, due to the long length of wated film required to be pulled out of the canister to load the camera.

    Actually the lens for the Holga 135 Panoramic camera does come off. It's the first Holga camera to have this capability. The reason is because the camera comes with two detachable lenses...one standard, and one pinhole.

    I'm curious to see if this is gonna be a one-off, or if Holga is going to include detachable lenses for other models in the future.

    I'll find out when the camera arrives.

    I e-mailed a local lab that processes 120 film via mail order and asked if they also process films taken in the Holga 120 and/or 135 panoramic models. They replied that they could only process the film, but not scan or print them because their scanner only handles negatives up to 7 cm wide. 7 cm is just a little over 2 3/4 inches.

    It would sound like the size of the panoramic negatives are quite larger than this?

    I Googled "panoramic film processing" and found thedarkroom.com out in San Clemente, California, so I might give them a try.

    The Holga catalogue (PDF available from Tokina at http://www.tokina.com.hk/) shows the 135 Pan as the only camera they have currently, with removable lenses, is 1.3 (panorama) and recommends the use of ASA 400 film.
