    These are with the same version of the Holga that you have, Ari. I took the mask out and haven't had problems with scratches (as far as I've noticed). I do get uneven vignetting, but have tried to modify that by putting black construction paper inside - hasn't quite lined up, yet.

    Terrific photographs Bethe!
    For one they hardly look like they were made by a dirt cheap plastic toy.
    You have convinced me to try without the mask.
    I prefer the square anyway and it would great if I didn't have to turn the camera all the time.
    Plus the circular vignetting is more cool.
    I did order that second Holga from Ebay, but as it was a good price and as one could always use a second Holga (one BW, one color), I don't regret it.

    Ari darling, these were done with the same Holga as you have.... mask removed and well-taped back.

    Thanks, Ari! I like them, too (and a few others). I really haven't used it as much as I planned to, but have had fun with it. I bought mine back when they were $16 US. I have been thinking about the newer version, too, because I'd like to have the bulb option.
    Valerie, yours were cool, too!

    Always inspirational Valerie.

    Probably though you can't insert the mask if you have taped the opening, right?
    I am planning to go on the street carrying two Holgas, one with color and another with BW and it would make my compositing life so much easier if both were squares.
