Jonathan, your rig proves the old proverb, "Necessity is the mother of invention" anew. It sure is a cheaper way to get to the final result than mine, but I'll wager it works just as well. A couple things I like about it: you can position things such that you're getting exactly a full-frame duplicate of the slide or negative and you're not restricted to any particular lens focal length. I like your "custom made holder." What did you use for your diffusion materials? They look like thin, translucent pieces of plastic, but I'm curious where you got them from.

Oh and I for one am thankful for your post. I had never heard of the Lomography Digitaliza, so I googled it. I found that Adorama and B&H carry it in both 35mm and medium format. I don't really need the 35mm size, but I can put to good use one in medium format for duping that size film. True, I could use the 120 film holder from my scanner, but that is a three-row contraption -- much larger and more unwieldy, And rather unusable if I wanted to rig up a "custom made holder" such as yours. Actually, now that I think about it, I could use the 35mm one also if I wanted to use a longer focal length macro lens. Too bad they don't make one for mounted slides. Hrm . . . now that I think about it -- I have slide holders for an old Minolta scanner that might work for this sort of thing. Thanks for the ideas.
It is a flexible rig, the downside of which is that there are numerous things I need to make sure are set up correctly each time I use it. The diffusers are sheets of plastic from a stationer, I think they were intended for use in making folders or binding papers. There is also a folded sheet of padded packing material.

The digitaliza works very well and is solidly built. I have both sizes but don't think I've ever used the medium format one.

Pentax LX and SMC-M 35/f2. I can't remember the film...
Very cool atmospheric shot.

A few personal firsts with this roll, film and lens.
The film is simply called FT12, a black and white iso50 high contrast film sold by Nik and Trick photo services in the UK. Its supposed to be similar to the old Kodak SO-331, except its fresh stock rather than long since expired.
The lens is a random ebay find, a Vivitar 19mm f3.8 after reading a few reviews I thought it was well worth a try. This was literally the first time it had gone on the camera, so along with the first time using the film this could of been interesting.

I was on the Isle of Wight for a christening, these are taken just after sunrise in a little village called Seaview.
Pentax MX, Vivitar 19mm f3.8, FT12, stand developed in Rodinal for 45mins.







Very nice. Makes me curious about where the film comes from.

Thanks. According to the people that sell it (here) its original purpose is sound recording film, but however it started life I like how it looks and will be buying a few more rolls.

My Grandfather Cliff and his cousin Athol, prior to starting the Overland Track in 1942 - they would have been 17 at the time. I'd love to know what camera was used but unfortunately it was sold when Cliff died in the 80's...

My battered old ME Super is dead ;__; it had obviously had a hard life when I bought it for 5 two years ago, and I've used it pretty hard since.
These are from the final roll of film I put through it - Fomapan 100, developed in Rodinal 1:25.
