    i use a holga and a rolleiflex T.

    Having 12 shots per roll definitely makes you think more about composition before snapping away.

    Also, have fun getting used to things moving the opposite direction laterally.

    heh... i have a holga too, never use it tho...

    i have a fuji 6x9 and want to get a 501cm...

    any large format owners? :big grin: i got my speed graphics....

    the reason i haven't gotton the hassie is cause mamiya has a badass student deal on a 45cx kit with 2 lenses and 3 holders... just can't justify the need yet for either camera at this point....

    yeah the whole opposite direction thing will probably take some getting used to. it's in pretty good condition and all of the shutter speeds and fstops seem accurate. not sure if the meter is accurate or not, but it works. i think i got a pretty good deal on it. i picked it up for $100.

    i'm probably going to be picking up a light meter in the next few months. i'm looking at the gossen luna pro.

    Holgas are a pain in the ass. All the taping between rolls gets on my nerves.

    I've seen some really cool stuff done with them though.
