    Getting alot of dust on holga film

    When I take my Holga out without being protected, I seem to get alot of dust in the resulting negatives. I've never seen this before, although it is January and the air is very dry and staticy. I blow out the camera with canned air each time before I put the film in, so it must be getting in from the outside somewhere. Is the only place for dust to get into a Holga from the back? Has anyone else experienced this?

    Not the best engineering on these Holgas!

    Get some black gaffers tape and tape it over the metal clips and around the camera to form a tighter seal once you load the film. This is also likely to help with potential lightleaks.

    Good luck!
