The collection grows


Having a small number of shots like 12, 8, 6 on a roll with cameras like the Belair and Spinner, I wondered if there was a solution that would see me spend more time shooting and less time reloading film. A quick ebay browse later and I decided on the Holga 135TIM Half Frame Camera. There was something about the crazed “smile” on the yellow body. That and the fact it will get me 72 shots on a standard 36 exposure roll. Happy days to come!

    The yellow has turned to red. I guess it's a popular colour!

    Arrival! Even came with film and it's sunny out. Time to go find some trees with the kid.

    @neanderthalis You jinxed it! LOL! Premature celebration on my part too. Film advance jammed after just 2 rolls!! Maybe I'll tinker to see if it can be fixed - one day. Broken camera shelf population: 4
