Trying To Get It Right I

'Five frames with the Holga 120-Pan, trying to get it right with a roll of expired Fujifilm Pro 160-S'

The Holga 120-Pan, similar to its sibling Holga 120-GN, is a very lightweight simplistic camera that comes in a plastic body that is susceptible to light leaks, a 90mm optical lens, a single shutter speed of 1/100th second, and two aperture settings, f/8 and f/11.

The Holga 120 Pan, however, takes 60x120mm panoramic images on 120 format color or B&W film, which is twice as wide when compared to the square 6x6 format.

Focusing is adjustable to 4 zones - portrait, small group, big group, infinity. Interestingly too, the camera comes fitted with a clear-line viewfinder fixed to the top plate, and a spirit-level embedded within the top plate towards the left of the top plate.

The film back, with the red film frame count window set for 12 and 16 (glued fixed) frames is clearly from the GN model, the 120-Pan can only take up to 6 shots per 120 film roll.

In use, with nothing much by way of manual control or other adjustments, all you have to do is to set the camera level and steady before pressing the shutter.
