Trying To Get It Right #II, Holga 120-Pan

'Analog Diary - Still trying to get it right with the Holga 120-Pan and a roll of expired Fujifilm Pro 160-S'

Well, here I am, back again with the Holga 120-Pan at the park right near to where I live, and as per my previous visit, I had the camera loaded with a roll of expired Fujifilm Pro 160-S.

Holga 120-Pan
The Holga 120-Pan is a medium format 6x12 panoramic camera released around 2010. Its form factor is based on the Holga 120-WPC pinhole camera body, as can be seen, by the same field of view lines are on top of the body.

The 120-Pan comes with a viewfinder attached, two hot shoes, and a level bubble, features that make the Holga almost a complete contraption all set and ready for tilt and yaw adjustments.

The 90mm optical lens has the same four focusing distance position as seen on other Holgas as well - 1M,  2M, 6M, and 10M-Infinity. Same as other Holga cameras are the single (N) 1/100 second shutter with a B(ulb) setting. The film back has a fixed film counter window. The film must be advanced every odd-numbered exposure or overlapping exposure will occur. An optional 35mm film kit is also available which can expose 24 x 108mm images.

The session was just an OK, still did the mistake with only a single frame film forwarding, and found out later that most of the shot was grossly underexposed. Post-processing on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) includes tweaks with Tone Curve, Brightness & Contrast, Gamma, Color Balance, Hue & Saturation, Sharpness & Blur, Unsharp Mask, and Noise Reduction, with variation in Brightness & Contrast for individual images.
