5.0 out of 5 stars Great Lo-Fi Camera!, December 21, 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Holga 174120 120N Jawz Holgawood Collection Plastic Camera (Blue/Grey) (Electronics)
I purchased this camera after returning the Diana Mini (due to advance wheel problems) and I LOVE IT. The camera itself is very simple, and easy to use. If you are not keen on the associated costs of using 120 film, I highly suggest purchasing the 35mm conversion kit... Holga 35mm Film Adaptor Kit for Holga 120 Medium Format Cameras. I bought it with the camera and it was extremely easy to install.

Please understand that this camera does not have a built-in flash. I tried to take indoor photos (with lights on!) and they were too dark for developing according to CVS Pharmacy. All of my outdoor shots in cloudy weather have turned out fine. I've not taken photos in sunny weather yet. I guess the remedy for this is to purchase a flash, which I have done, and am awaiting its arrival.

If you're debating on which plastic camera to start with, I highly reccommend the Holga 120N. It's cheaper than the Diana and has a wide range of inexpensive accessories.

I would like to note that I've found developing 120 film is extremely inexpensive! I use 120 film for my Diana camera, and my local walmart develops a roll of it (and gives me the prints) for just over $2. You can't beat that! It is send-out service only, so it takes about 2 weeks to get it back, but that just lets your anticipation build! Plus, 120 film is extra cool being that you get square prints, unlike 35mm film!
