Hi there. I’m sushi. Nice to meet you.
Say, would you happen to know anything about the Holga 135bc? I’ve had one for about a month now, and have shot maybe seven or eight rolls on it. A couple of them I messed up upon removing the film from the camera, but most of the others have turned out well. I it doesn’t have nearly as much vignetting as I’d like, but I can use filters and mask adjustments. It’s definitely given me some pleasing shots.
Recently, though, this has been happening:
They’ve appeared on the last two rolls I’ve shot. Is the thicker, lighter one possibly a leak? What of the thin black line running underneath?
The one thing I have noticed that may or may not be a factor is that the rewinding knob seems a bit wonky. Like when I’m rewinding, if I release my pressure or slow down even slightly, it starts turning back so that portions get wound back again. Is that normal?
Another question regarding the rewind knob: When the camera is loaded and in use, what is the knob’s proper state? Is it supposed to be, like locked or fixed in place? Mine can be easily turned a bit in either direction, it’s very loosey goosey seeming to me, but not having had one before, I’ve no way to know if that’s just how they are.
I’m rather new here, so if the blogs are not the place for questions or feedback, I apologize. I do plan to post my query in a holga specific forum, as well. I just wanted to ensure maximum feedback.
So thanks for your time, and any thoughts you may have.
