Product Description

This 35mm Film Adaptor Kit allows you to use 35mm film in a Holga 120 medium format camera (Non-3D). Easy to follow instructions get you started quickly. The kit includes a plastic insert that replaces your existing battery cover/120 insert with one that guides 35mm film through the camera and a solid back without red window. Special Note: In order to remove 35mm film from your Holga camera after it has been exposed you must use a changing bag or go in to a light tight darkroom! (Holga camera shown for illustration purposes only. Not included with kit.)

Like with so many holga's they all have there own light leak problems, With 35mm film light leaking in to much will ruin the film completely. So I found that with this kit you still need to tape up your camera to excess to avoid as much light leaking as possible..I did have some after taping but not so much as to blow out/ruin the film. so this kit is really nice as long as you remember to tape your camera alot. Also when using this kit you will NOT get exposure over your 35mm sprockets so if you want that it's best to skip the insert and self rig.

The 35mm film adapter for the Holga does work like you'd expect it to but it's not the easiest thing to deal with. It does come with a nice sticker to put on the top of your film advance wheel and that does work quite nicely actually, got them developed easily at WalMart's drop-off box. But the reason for me getting this was to save money from having to get 120 film developed and that reason is kinda gone. I found out that WalMart will develop 120 quite cheaply through it's drop off box which is a big plus and so it's actually cheaper to develop 120 film than the 35mm, the 35mm cost me a pretty penny to get done and the 120 is actually cheaper from what I hear. But with that said this product does work as advertised but there are two things I didn't like about it. Having to change out the film in a completely dark room was more hassle than I knew, I found only one room capable of this and it's only capable of this at night since light leaks in during the day and so it's not exactly convenient if you get to the end of your roll in the middle of the day. Also one other thing was the scratches across the film, I'm not sure if it was the adapter that caused this or a film processing problem with FujiFilm who did the pickup process from Walmart but it wasn't nice to find on my film.

The adapter kit does what it is supposed to do, but I am not 100% satisfied. Before I begin, I want to say that I use a changing bag to remove the film, and I think that is waaay better than finding a dark room. The bag allows me to change rolls of film on location. I bought my changing bag at a local camera store for about $15. The sticker for the crank wheel works well in telling you how many cranks you need to hear for the next shot. If you load the camera without any masks for sprocket panorama shots, you can use the sticker to advance the film 2 frames, eliminating guess work.

The adapter kit makes your images rectangular. On the film, your image will be 3.5cm wide X 2.4cm high with NO vignetting. That is not really what I was hoping for. I would have preferred a square image with vignetting to "simulate" using the Holga with 120 film and no mask.

The kit should also come with a corresponding mask for the viewfinder. Only what you see in the very center of the viewfinder will show up on the film when you snap a photo. You'd have to create your own viewfinder mask with black tape or something. Or learn to get used to framing differently with 35mm film installed. With my first roll, many heads of people were cut off.

Also, this is hard to explain, but the images seem "flat". I am pretty sure it is because only the center of the lens is being used. The outer edge of the lens, the part that really gives images their warped-dreaminess (and vignetting), goes to waste. This was solved a bit with the use of the Holga wide angle lens. I imagine the Holga Fisheye lens would help too.

So, because of all this, it might better to just buy the Holga 135BC.

This adapter is great, I don't have to cut any foam to hold my 35mm film in. If you want to get your film developed at walmart or wherever just use the 24 click method. I'd recommend this to anyone!

This little add on is essential to those with the 120. I chose and love my 120 because I wanted to be able to take 120mm shots when I wanted to. But 35mm is so much easier to find and develop. I love this simple attachment, it's really simple to use and install.

I would recommend this product for anyone, or you can make one yourself. This kit comes with a very accurate knob counter for each frame, and is more convenient than making the home made kit.

Great product, and for the price you might as well get it.

I was interested in exposing the sprocket holes in 35mm film with this adapter. Despite the customer images next to the product photo, this adapter will NOT expose the film sprockets. For my purpose, the plastic insert adapter is quite useless and the extra solid back is redundant if you tape the original back cover correctly. So, basically, you can pay 15 dollars for the two small stickers for the winder button. You can also search the web for winding charts and easy, inexpensive rig instructions to expose the sprocket holes. Most of the various sellers' descriptions of this adapter are quite disingenuous, as they make no mention of sprocket holes, knowing that's exactly what many of us are after.

For sprocket photography, you will either have to modify the framing insert to remove the edges, or not use it at all. In either case, your results will be poor.

The film does not stay flat, resulting in blurry images. Plus, the light going through the holes bounces off the back (which is ribbed with cavities) and exposes the backside of the film, resulting in an orange cast and hole ghosting on the edges of the negatives.

In any case, if you are going to experiement, you can probably do it cheaper without this adapter. Or just shoot cheap out-of-date 120 film from ebay and have more playroom to crop.
