    Holga-blad

    Has anyone every tried to take off the lens off an Holga and attach it to a Hasselblad body cap, thus creating a most frightening cross-breed monstrosity? The reason this came to mind is that I have all sort of troubles with the Holga body (no "good" troubles) and I am only interested in the creative ways the shitty lens can be used for.

    I'm sure someone has done it and I'm also pretty sure I have read about it years ago but who and where???
    It can't be that difficult though. Have a look at this.

    The lens to body distance might be too large for it to focus properly on a Hasselblad. It could easily be fixed to the body of an old 6x6 folder though.

    It's been done. SK Grimes has probably made conversions for people. http://www.skgrimes.com/dim/index.htm

    It probably will be easier if you have a Rollei SL66 with it's bellows focussing and focal plane shutter......
    Never tried it though.

    No, but can I be the first to add "mruhahahahahahahahaaaaaaa... eeeeeeeevil"

    I did try taping one to the front of my M8, and a friend made a moving one for his Canon 350d... might have another go myself... hmmm.

    No, but someone at Freestyle has come up with the reverse of what you're describing:

    Look at the "Holgablad" on the bottom row, second from the right...the Holga body with a massive Hassy lens.
