Paint With light!
The Holga gives you total control over the shutter, allowing you to 'draw' with light. Create fascinating images using a tripod and LED flashlight.
Capture the essence of the scene with double exposures! Trigger the shutter without advancing the film for spectacular photos!
Get The Whole Picture!
The Holga uses 120 format film, which offers a greater sense of depth and can capture images at a better resolution when compared to 35mm. (You can also use 35mm film, with the included mask!)
Panoramas are easy to make! By turning the film advance wheel only partially, you can create panoramic or overlapping images.

The Holga 120N is BACK! The Holga camera was initially introduced to the Chinese public, in 1982, as an inexpensive camera for everyday use. Shortly after its introduction, it became an underground artistic phenomena. Using the Holga is an exercise in breaking free from dependence on technology, precision and controllability. The slight softness of the images, vignetting and random light leaks produce dream-like, one-of-a kind images. The current Holga 120N is modeled after the original Holga camera and features the improved usability found in the latest generations.

The color, of course, is minor compared with its Holga-osity. It is just SO much fun. Yes, you have to tape up the edges each time you load film into it so the light doesn't leak in. You get so you can do that in two minutes flat. I had this with me on a cruise to Key West and Cozumel. Where others were carrying fancy digital cameras, I would whip this thing out, covered in its tape, and they'd all stare at it as if it had come from another dimension. Which then started fun conversations.
Yes, it takes film. And not "normal" 35mm film, either. So you'll have to track down 120 film to load into it and then a place to develop it.
But wait! You actually can jury-rig it so it takes 35mm film and then it'll shoot the entire film - **including the sprockets**. Talk about fun film effects!
Plus you can double or triple expose a single frame of film, shoot squares, shoot rectangles, overlap frames, you name it. Just so much fun.
So sure, digital cameras are fun. They're easy. But this Holga is a cheap reminder of just why film still holds the attention of many of us.
Take the plunge. Buy a Holga!
UPDATE: I added a few photos of what the ORIGINAL Holga box looked like. This was solid blue cardboard without any flimsy plastic inserts. So when you get a Holga with this blue box you know you've got a real collector's item :). The more modern versions came in thinner cardboard boxes with a super-thin plastic window over the front so you could see the camera inside. Good for marketing, less good for camera protection.
Included in package:
-hold camera with plastic lens attached
-new experience with photography
-you never know what you are going to get
-comes with the camera body, lens attached to body and a neck strap
-can easily use 35mm (instructions are included in manual in how to adjust this) or 120mm (medium format film)
-plastic lens distorts image so you never know how it is going to come out unless you get the film developed
Buy it. It is well-worth the $25 to experiment with.
