    The basic Holga only has one working aperture. The sunny/cloudy switch doesn't actually make any difference. Take the back off, press the shutter lever & see for yourself.

    I vary the iso I load depending on the light levels.
    On bright sunny days I can shoot iso 50 or 100 emulsions.
    If the light is a stop or 2 less I use iso 400.

    I added a Cokin filter holder & I have some 2 stop neutral density filters if there is too much light for the film I've loaded.

    That is true and thats why I use 400 speed film. But I have lots of holgas and my older ones, from the 90's, are slow. The spring has lost some sprung so the shutter is quite slower. I use 100 JandC pro on those and process PMK.
