    Film for Holga

    With only a 1/100 shutter speed, and apertures of f:8 andf:11, what film(s) are being used? Thanks.

    I use FP4+ in mine, when I use it. The latitude of FP4+ allows for better results with the fixed shutter speed and aperture - for me anyway.

    it will all depend on the lighting conditions; as that along with the developer type and/or ratio of developer is the real control element with using toy cameras.

    I usually use TX and develop in D76. When I wish to use a red filter over the lens, I use TX and develop it in Diafine. I get good results both ways.

    Ann has a good point. These lenses are not very contrasty so to bump up the contast somewhat, you'll need to add more development. Lots of times, I use 400 speed film and process with my other 120 film. Sunny days/400speed file/D76/11-12 minutes. Or sometimes PMK usual development for your other films.

    Here's a photo shot in bright light. 400 speed film. I processed with my other rolls of 400 speed film (shot with a normal camera) in D76. Looks a little flat, I had to bump up the contrast a bit. But if I did the roll by itself, I would have given it like 10-20% more processing.

    Any good 400 ISO color negative film.

    I'm see a B&W bias. Grin.

    TX and Diafine (which compensates a little for the exposure irregularities from the Holga)

    Tri-X in PMK. I found this combo can save a lot of exposure errors, but not composition miscues.

    Tri-X in diafine for me, as my Holga seems to be much faster than 1/100.
