Using 35mm film with ISO 400 and the Fischer’s Fritze La Sardina Camera, I’m went to test out Fritz the Blitz Flash capability and iron out the bugs along the way!
How powerful is Flitz the Blitz Flash ?
Powered by CR123 3volt battery and available in 3 different setting, its specifically designed for El Capitán , Fischer’s Fritze , Sea Pride and Marathon La Sardina Camera although you can get the adapter kit and mount it on the LC-A, for example.
Using ISO 400 lomography film , I discovered it works well and excels in low light situation when I was on foot and inside a building or away from the sun. It works well with a cable release and with the Fischer’s Fritze mounted on small flex tripod.
Like majority of newbies, I face problems when the flash does not work after I press the Shutter button. The solution is, you need to pull out the shutter release lock out and give it a twist till you can see “shoot only if you can read me” statement properly. Make sure it is properly aligned around the center of the lens and there’s a “Loud Click” sound too. By the way, remove the battery when “Not in Use”. That’s it!
