    Holga Pinhole

    Hi all,

    I bought a Holga Pinhole 120 WPC, it came with one mask [and not sure if it should come with 2 masks], and no cable release, so how can i take a long exposure shots without cable release? Ofcourse the camera is on a tripod definitely no doubt.

    What accessories i should look for that Holga Pinhole or it doesn't have any additional accessories?

    I feel it is nice wide camera, but which normal pinhole camera to get if i want to get another one?

    Looks like a fun camera to try.

    Tareq -- buy a cable release -- you'll be able to use it on other cameras as well for long exposures. You don't need anything else for the Holga.

    Yes ofcourse i will do, in fact i was going to buy the cable release together with that holga, but from the website that i bought from didn't put a cable release as accessories with this Holga 120WPC, but it is there as accessories for another Holga cameras, so i assumed it will not work with this Holga model.

    One of the masks comes installed and one in the package. Put a finger in either film chamber, press ightly and lift it out.

    Take a look at the end of the shutter button. I have two of these cameras and on both of mine there is a threaded fitting in side the shutter button that accepts a cable release. A cable release was not included with the cameras.

    Indeed, the camera does not come with a cable release but the shutter button is threaded for one. Just buy your every day cheap standard cable release from any number of vendors and you'll be fine. The release will work on any number of cameras out there and will last as long as you own it.

    Have fun with the camera! I have one and several pinhole cameras I've made myself. I'll confess I tend to use the Holga a lot more than home made ones. The wide angle and long negatives are a lot of fun!!!
