For those of you who aren't familiar with toy cameras, there is a nifty little switch on the back of Holgas and Dianas that allows you to choose between taking 12 full framed shots or 16 exposures minus some vignetting. I like option B because, to be frank, processing 120 film is a little expensive for my taste so I opt for getting more bang for my buck. BUT...After shooting about 5 or 6 rolls of film, I discovered that my camera was missing the small internal frame that makes this possible...and of course I took most of our anniversary road trip photos with THIS camera. Curses!
The result? inevitably double and sometimes triple exposure. That's great ...when you are planning for that sort of thing.
To my surprise the prints turned out ok! They aren't great, but in this case "ok" is such a relief!
