What were your first thoughts when you found out about Lomography’s 35mm Back for the Belair X 6-12?

After I used the Belair X 6-12 for a while, I was thinking about loading 35mm films. The super wide and sprocket image must be great! But I was too lazy to Modified it, so didn’t do it at all. When I get the 35mm Back, I was so happy. It is so convenient to load 35mm films.

How did you find the installation of the accessory to the Belair X 6-12? Did you have any trouble with it?
It is easy to install it. It’s just like Diana 35mm Back. Just take off the oringinal Back, then put the 35mm Bak into it. When use the 35mm Back, the frame must be take off. I was thinking use the 6×9 format , but it cannot work.

What film/s did you use with the Belair X 6-12 equipped with its 35mm Back? Which of these do you think produced the best results when paired with the Belair?

I used lots of films: Lomography CN100, CN400, CN800, CR100, Lady Grey B&W 400, Earl Grey B&W 100. I like the Lomography CN800 most. The color is great, and it is easier to shoot at weak light with the high ISO value.

Given your experience with the new accessory for the Belair X 6-12, hat kinds of subjects do you think this combination suits best?

I used it to shoot several subjects. I still like shooting people as I use other cameras. People with wide landscape or city view very suits it.

What was it like shooting with the amazing extra-long panoramic format for the Belair?

It takes wider photos than the Horizon Perfekt or Kompakt, but the images won’t be distorted or out of shape. Also, it shows the sprockets! The extra-long panoramic image with sprocket is really charming.*

Do you have any tips and tricks for those who want to try out this analogue combination?

Lastly, in 5 words, how would you describe the whole experience of shooting with the 35mm Back for the Belair X 6-12?

Exciting, convenient, wide, wide, creative, and magical!
