With a single drop of lubricant it is possible repair a stuck shutter. Read on to find out how to do this with these simple steps.
Perhaps it’s too obvious ,but i think it´s very helpful. Recently the shutter of my Holga got stuck and I had to push on the shutter with more strength. It resulted in blurred pictures.
At first, I thought I had to get a new Holga. Then I remembered that if I put some kind of lubricant on the shutter mechanism, it could help. It did, and now my Holga works properly.
You only need a single drop of any lubricant like WD-40 or something similar. Just open your camera so that the shutter mechanism gets exposed and let little drop of lubricant fall on the shutter mechanism .
Your camera should work smoothly now.
This works on my Holga and in other cameras with similar shutter machanism like the Diana F+ for example.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
A truth: life is simple, living isn't. Within the grand scale of things, everything seems minuscule; how easy it is for the human to detach from soul and empathy and bury them within. This kept human condition and behavior is given limelight in photographer Brittany Markert's riveting series.
