I love contrast and color, i love vignetting I love the dreamlike images i get with this set.

This product is very easy to figure out and install, actually way easier than spooling the 120 film that holgas normally take.

Since the specs on the Amazon isn't really clear about what films this Holgaroid could take, I'm going to post up the complete list here; this list comes from the Holgaroid instruction "booklet" which is merely a 8x11 double sided, photocopied paper with actually well-written easy to follow pictured instructions of how to install and use the back.

Unlike the first version of the back that only takes the 8.3x8.6cm format films, this one takes 8.5x108cm films (like Fuji100c). Here's the complete list of what films the back could take:

8.3x8.6cm formats -- Viva color, Type89, Type88, Type87, Type84, Type82. This format will expose the entire film and you will get a full frame image.

8.5x108cm formats-- FP-100C, FP-100B, FP-3000B, Type690, Studio125i, Type669, Type664, Type663 and Type667. You won't be able to take a full frame image with this format. Approximately 80% of the film will be exposed--this is becuase the film is bigger than the other, smaller format. If you don't use any masks (a little platic piece that came with the Holga camera), you get a little more exposure area.

Fuji films are the easiest to find--many local camera shops still carry them. Polaroid 690,669,664, 663 films are still widely available online and from B&H store in NY.

In terms of the quality you could get with this back--it's a hit or miss. You'll have to play around with it (A LOT) to get used to getting the right exposure. I've only used the back with Fuji FP-100C & B and FP-3000. I am finding that I've had more success taking stills by pressing the shutter a few times. Even with the FP-100s, I get better results if I press the shutter a couple of times (double exposing the film).

I must admit I went back and forth in my mind before plunking down $150 for this thing. Not counting the cost of the film, of course, which is not cheap. I so far have only used Polaroid 669, and that will run you just north of $1 a shot. And it probably will not get cheaper in the future. Fuji makes instant film for this also. I can confirm that Fuji FP-3000B film absolutely works with this back as I just developed a shot 2 minutes ago. So you have other choices besides Polaroid film.

Anyway, in spite of the expense, I absolutely love it! There is just something about the quality of the photo that I cannot duplicate with my Nikon Dxxx. The colors are great and the results are as sharp or sharper than anything I get with my digital. However, this is not intended to be a film versus digital debate - you can read about that anywhere. For me, my Holga and dlsr complement each other and serve totally different purposes.

I admittedly have an addiction to acquiring camera gear, accessories, etc. that far exceed my needs. Too much of it sits in their boxes never to see the light of day. But since I bought the Holga Polaroid back, I find that I not only pick up my Holga every single day, but I do so with a renewed sense of joy and anticipation. That is the true measure, in my opinion, of the worth of any product like this.

It is as simple to use as any similar type back. It attaches via your camera's slide rails and it adds a tripod mount. Just pop in your film, don't forget to move your dark slide, and you are good to go. As is evident from the product photo, it obscures the finder, but it comes with an external finder you can attach to the top of your Holga. Works well enough.

So, the polaroid back for the holga is amazing... I have been shooting Fuji instant film with mine and the colors turn out great. Just be prepared to do bulb shots if you're not in bright sunlight. This product is very easy to figure out and install, actually way easier than spooling the 120 film that holgas normally take.

Works like a charm, glad I made the purchase. Holgas are Gods gift to photography and the Polaroid attachment is the icing on the cake.

Exercise your Photographic imagination and have fun.

There is nothing i didn't like about this product it was everything I expected. Shipping was quick! The only thing i would suggest is PULL out the light blocker slide that is on the opposite side from where the film comes out of

This was awesome! I totally love seeing instant prints from images shot. The only part that stinks is only 3/4 of the 120 film is exposed. A tripod is highly recommended. I would also recommend a flash for night or dark shots.
