TheSideWinder

Tech X Holga

TheSideWinder

Yes, i'm facing the fact as the laziest person to turn the forwarding wheel to the next frame of 120mm medium format film.
Yet another toy camera which i always loved to improvised and mod. Relatively easier cos it made from plastic.
Nothing fasinating, no electrical/electronic involved but yet tough enough to made me think how can it be done as simple as possible.

Another great quick weekend project, PartyPeople!!!

Hey there,
I'm a fellow camera builder and modifier (check out dirkfletcher.blogspot.com) and
Im about to put a Graflex roll film back advance mechanism on the bottom of holga (upside down) so I can advance w/o looking at the window, Can you share how you made your lever advance? It looks smaller and lighter.
Any more advice would be appreciated!
