    Got the first 2 rolls developed this past weekend. The color roll was a waste but the b&w came out well.

    I am now in the market for a good 120 film scanner. Any recommendations?

    is the colour 160C? if so it works fine in direct midday sun, but you will otherwise need faster film. I just did an aperture mod which takes my holga from ~F10 to about F7, and F18 on the reduced setting.. still yet to try it.

    I use a canon 8800F for scanning, it works really well.

    The 8800F is what I was looking at. I have read some decent things about it. What did you pay for yours?

    I like the pics. They have that "Blair witch" look to them.

    Are those the ones that you have to wrap tape around because the plastic's so thin?

    I just dont like the look of the images from those cameras. Others do, so whatever floats their boat.
