35mm it is!

Ok, so I did it. Went to a fotostudio in Kinkerstraat in Amsterdam called Foto Solleveld. After a nice chat about prices for developing 120mm and 35mm, I decided to go get the 35mm back for my Diana. I biked over to a place on Singel, and bought the backpiece + a 3pack of FujiFilm 36 exposure ISO 400 color films. It all set me back 57 Euro in total, but from now, I will only have to pay about 3.5 for developing film into negatives, and from there I can either scan them myself (if I had a scanner), or I can pay 5 Euro and get them all on CD.

Here's what's in the box:

If you want to save som $ and rather do it yourself, here's how:



  1. Hey there...good to see another person taking the time to research everything before buying. I struggled with this too because I want to take 35mm sprocket holes without having to rewind the film in the dark. So, I bought the 35mm back for my Diana and the 38mm Super wide lens...I read that's supposed to help with focusing the shots on 35mm film. You have a very nice blog. I'm totally in love with lomography! lol

  2. Hey, didn't see your comment before now.
    I love my lomo too, and the 35mm back is genious. Especially if u want to take more shots on each roll, save money, and have those great sprocket holes. However, that nice vignette-effect you get with medium format disappears though. So it's nice to be able to switch back and forth a bit ;)
