    Any Holga 120 WPC Users?

    Is anyone else using the new-ish Holga 120 WPC to take pinhole shots with? What are your thoughts on it? I've only had mine for a couple of months now but so far I love it. There is some odd vigenetting from time to time (not even, circular vigenetting) that I *think* is caused by the "shutter" not fully clearing the image area if the cable release isn't in firmly enough, but besides that I love it...small, light, and 6x12 images

    Below is my favorite photograph from it so far. I have about a dozen more in a gallery on my website here. With each image is included exposure, film, and processing information.

    Vignetting Holga 6x12 pinhole-cam

    I´ve got one too, just two weeks ago. Just processed and scanned my first B&W film a couple of days ago. First of all, I am not impressed yet because of the same reason, vignertting. At this time I am not sure about why all of my negs are vignetted. I am loosing about half a cm on either side of my negatives and I don´t know why.

    That's not the vignetting I was reffering to. Circular vignetting is "normal" for pinholes (and holgas, for that matter ). I occasionally get more of a hard, linear vignetting on one side as if the shutter door doesn't clear the image area.

    The price is about the same as buying from eBay (i.e. Hong Kong + shipping)
