Pony Hunter


Pony Hunter is a great New Zealand fashion blog, definitely worth checking out :)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In other news I bought my husband the Holga 135BC over the weekend so it should arrive in the next day or two. I have to admit, I say that it's for him, but I'll definitely be borrowing it for some photo adventures of my own as well!

I'm happy to have a Holga that takes 35mm film instead of 120 because in NZ the 120 costs about $50 to develop 12 photos!!! Which is a habit I don't think I can afford.

Anyway if there are any Holga lovers reading this post, I'd love and appreciate any tips and tricks you can give me (*cough, my husband).

  1. i just bought the attachment for the normal holga so that it can hold normal 35 film, not that you really need it, it can take normal 35 film anyway. It looks quite cool wen u use a standard holga with 35 film.
    An besides, this way you get the book too. But then again... You've already ordered, holga35 is nice and small.

    But if you put 35mm film in a 120 camera wouldn't the sprocket holes show? That might be fun to do occasionally but I wouldn't like it to look like that everytime.

  4. I can't wait to see the photos you...er, I mean your -hubby- takes! I haven't shot film in years though it's something I'd like to get back into someday.

  5. Guh, I hate 120 film. It's so hard to find and we have to send it away to get it processed. (I live on an island)

  8. 50 dollars?! I knew it cost more but I didn't think it was that expensive! But how exciting! 35mm film is my favorite :)

  9. Ooh have fun with your new Holga!! I've been thinking very much about buying one. So many blogs I read use them as their primary camera. I mostly work in digital, and want to expand. I'll be excited to see it on your blog for some inspiration!

  15. I love my holga 135bc! You have a diana mini don't you? It's easier than the diana to get the hang of I think.. you don't have to worry about winding the film or breaking the film. My best tip is to enjoy it and make sure the bulb is set to N not B :) Have fun!
