What happens when you don't have anything to create a little tension and your film roll is just loose inside the camera? Fuzzy pictures happen. When the film doesn't stretch somewhat snuggly against the mask, the focus will be ultra bad and vignetting will be skewed. We know that Holgas do not always have awesome focus, but if it is over the top fuzzy, you will know something isn't right. We are going to permanently fix this problem so you don't need to be continually messing with folded cardboard, match books or whatever pain in the ass solution some of us have messed with. If this were an infomercial, this is the part where the voice over would say something like, "And who has time to fold cardboard? Throw all those messy boxes out forever!" Point is, if something you have come up with is working out for you, then far out. But if you are wondering why you may not be getting the results of others, give this a shot. Its easy.
