This Holgaroid Starter Kit includes the Fantastic Holgaroid instant polaroid back together with a Holga 120N camera to use it with.
When the original Polaroid attachment for Holga was discontinued the original inventors took it upon themselves to continue the production of the Holgaroid in light of its popularity. Installation is super easy and is completed within a matter of minutes. What's more you can switch between your Holga 120 regular film roll mode and the Polaroid holder by just switching the backs. As the Holgaroid back obscures the regular Holga viewfinder it comes with its own pop-up viewfinder. Additionally a new film frame mask and a 0.3x correcting diopter lens (to compensate for the change in distance from subject to film plane) are included. Now you can have all the fun of a Holga AND a Polaroid! And with no processing or developing cost and time factors to consider!
Notes: For FP-xxx Fujifilm format the image area is 7.3x9.5cm (not full frame). For Type 8x format film the image area is 6.9x7.2cm (full frame)
Using the Holgaroid is as easy as:
Fit the Holgaroid back, mask, viewfinder, correcting lens
Open Holgaroid back and load your pack of Polaroid film. Close back
Make sure no lens cap on!
Compose your image through the Holgaroid viewfinder
Remove the darkslide (slides out)
Click the shutter and replace the darkslide
Pull out the Polaroid from the camera back and lay on a level surface. Wait for development (varies according to film)
