    I decided to try converting my holga into a pinhole. I popped the lens off and covered the hole with black tape. I am going to use my Delta 3200 film. It's probably not gonna work, but I just thought it would be fun to try... I will report back in a few days!

    Coolie!!! Holgas are supposed to make excellent pinhole cams. I've never attempted one (one obsession at a time) so I can't wait to see how it works for you. :D

    Yeah, they do, but they're crazy expensive. (for a holga...) so I wanted to just try making it myself.

    Sounds like a great idea - www.polaroid.com give ideas for a 'Holgaroid' - a polaroid back on a pinhole Holga would be just perfect for instant results.

    I think what Orie is trying is the homemade style, as opposed to Polaroid's $$$ version. :wink: I'm interested to see how she does it. I love Polaroid, but they already get enough of my money just in type 59 film!! :shock:

    Yeah, mines just a homemade pinholga, not a pinholgaroid.

    I dismantled it because the sheet with the pinhole got kinda smooshed in traveling, then I left it at work, so now I gotta kinda start over and make a new one...
