The Fast and Convenient Belair X 6-12 35mm Back

The easiest and fastest way to get panoramic photos with our Belair with the added flair of sprocket holes.

The Lomography Belair X 6-12 is a great travel companion. It closes easily and fits in most backpacks or shoulder bags. It gives you great shots 6×6, 6×9, 6×12, and just recently a beautiful view of 3.2×10.2 cm that includes sprocket holes in your photos!

Before the 35mm Back I tried to put a 35mm film in my Belair. I adapted the film with 2 spacers to stop it, covered the counter with electrical tape then closed the back of Belair and started shooting. To keep things short, it was difficult using my makeshift 35mm adapter.

But thanks to the 35mm Back, just remove the mask on your Belair, remove the 120 spool and fit in the new back. In two minutes you have a totally new shooter.

Insert the roll, put the tab on the receiving spool and close the door. Well we’re done. Now just press the button to advance the number and turn the crank. In fact, the 35mm back is located only at the middle part of the image because it is smaller than the 120.

We can even eliminate the sprocket holes during scanning.

The quality is very good, although you should be careful about using the viewfinder to avoid getting these types of photos:
