Product Description

The Holga owes its incredible images to a few factors: a fresh and simple semi-wide plastic lens, professional-grade medium format film, a long exposure option and the ability to shoot multiple times on the same frame as well as the ability to advance partial frames.

Many people will complain that this camera is junky or imprecise, made only of plastic parts. I advise you now that not only is that the point of this little beauty, it is also what makes it so much fun!
The images that this camera produces are distorted and dream-like (an overused term, you will come to find, in reference to all things lomographic) and give you pictures reminiscent of your grandparents' photo albums.
One of the great things about the camera is the number of things you can do to it to experiment with your images. It definitely allows you more freedom to adjust and modify than, say, a thousand dollar digital would. Being that it's small and plastic you can feel free to do just about anything to it, as picking up another one is fairly cheap and easy to do.
Despite being made of plastic, these things are tough. I took mine overseas to Japan for 2 weeks and dragged it on planes, trains and everywhere. It uttered not a single complaint and kept snapping along, resulting in some lovely images that will always bring back fond memories of places like Kyoto and Okinawa. It held up in a suitcase and a messenger bag, being knocked around during the rush hour commute in Tokyo.
The main downside to these cameras is the amount of prep work necessary to keep them in good shape before use. Spraying down the inside with black paint to keep the reflections at a minimum and taping down the outside to ensure the back doesn't come off were time consuming, but also make sure that I'll have the camera for many years to come. For the record, the back doesn't come off of my personal Holga unless I bear down on the metal clips holding it in place.

I ordered this camera mainly because I love developing 120 film more so than 35mm. I chose to go with red, because I loved the color of it. Other than that...I knew nothing about Holga really, but I love this camera! It is a very fun camera to take pictures with, so take the plunge and buy it! I promise if you love the look and feel of film photos you will not regret buying this.
