Also, just making a 6x6 mask by cutting out the extra material in the original 645 mask and using just the rim is not enough.
... well, thats exactly what i have on my 1st holga and I have no probs at all. The film stays flat, no extra light leaks and i get great negatives. In fact, sometimes i prefer i to my other holga with the factory made 6x6 insert.

The best thing about holgas is to just try and see - new ones are available at very low prices on Ebay so it's not really that much of a problem if it doesnt work out. If anyone is thinking about getting one, dont wory about anything said here, just get one and try it out for yourself :wink:
