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.
It is clear that printmaker Iefa Shamsir has an eye for design. In this brief interview, we see how Iefa utilized the Lomo'Instant Wide to produce clean long exposure photos seemingly capturing more than one moment in a single frame.
