When shooting in halfframe or square mode with the LC-Wide, you're supposed to use a mask to get proper images. But what if you just ignore this rule (as us Lomographers are so good at doing)?
Just take out the masks from inside your LC-Wide, switch the mode to halfframe, fully open the lens cover (or close the lens cover a bit to make smaller overlapping parts) and shoot forever to get 72 shots blended halfway over each other on 36 frames – It makes every lab operator cry if you order more than just the uncut developed film, which is the way to go if you want to get a big part scanned in without the best parts cut through. Then you can decide for yourself which regions of the negative are best and use the DigitaLIZA to get splendid blended images. Or just see what you get when your LC-Wide photos come back from the lab!
