Such a fun camera,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Holga 120N Casablanco Holgawood Collection Plastic Camera (White) (Electronics)
This is actually my second Holga. I bought this one so that I can have two different types of film loaded at any given time. It's just as good as my first one, but like all Holgas it has its own personality different from my first Holga. They're light enough that I don't feel too weighed down having two on me, and with two I get to have one loaded with 35mm without having to find a darkroom if I want to keep shooting, I just load the second one with the regular 120mm.
The different colored bodies are fun too. I take them to fairs and other events and I get a lot of questions and comments on the camera, if not just a funny look or two hehehe. I think most of the time people expect water to shoot out of the lens or something.
All of this and I get some striking and unique images you could never get from a digital without some serious photoshopping, and at only $40 why not?
One word of advice though to first time Holga purchasers. This camera craves sunlight, so even if you are in a well lit indoor area, use a flash or a tripod on the long exposure B setting, otherwise you will end up with a roll of underexposed duds.
