Product Description

Color: Black | Style: Holga 135

The manufacturer of the Holga camera has created three new versions of their world famous camera in 35mm format. The new models are Holga 135 (Item #167-120), Holga 135PC (Item #168-120) and Holga 135BC (Item #170-120). The Holga 135 is a standard 35mm camera with similar features to the Holga 120N (item #144120) except that it includes a cable release adapter in the shutter release button. The Holga 135PC is similar except that in has a pinhole instead of a lens. The Holga 135BC is the same as the Holga 135 except that itincludes an internal mask to create a soft vignetting of the corners or bent corners effect. The Holga 135 is much like its 120N counterpart, however it requires 35mm film. It has the characteristic soft focus and enchanting possibility of light leaks. Features include: -Standard tripod mount (1/4-20) -Bulb selector for extra long exposures -Cable release adapter in the shutter release button No batteries required.

Style Name: Holga 135BC Black Corner VersionColor: Black
I've been shooting with my DSLR for a while now, and I never really had a use for film cameras until I got intrigued by the toy camera phenomenon that's been sweeping the nation. I thought about getting the Holga 120, but after doing extensive research on the cost of developing 120 film in my area (about $12 per roll, which has 12-16 exposures), I decided to go with the 35mm camera, where if I'm using Snapfish, i can get the whole roll developed for $3-5 for 36 exposures.

I must say, the Holga 135BC is a fun little camera! I took it on a trip to the mountains and got some great shots of the fall foliage. The vignetting (black corners) came out on about half the pictures; some of them came out without much vignetting at all, which was surprising. There haven't been any light leaks, which may disappoint some users, but I know there are some mods out there (involving drilling holes into the side of the body) to create that effect if you wish. Double exposures are quite easy to do. I recommend using ISO400 speed film for best effects, especially when you're just beginning. The aperture is pretty much set at something like f8 and the shutter speed is around 1/100 (though this can vary), so most indoor pictures and even outdoor pictures in overcast lighting came out dark and dismal. I kind of wish I had bought the one that comes with a flash unit (holga 15b) but I'm gonna purchase that separately. The ones I took in sunlight are great though, so i recommend taking your Holga outside on a pretty day for your first roll. As for loading and unloading the film, it's quite easy to do. Just remember to press the film release button on the bottom of the camera before you rewind your film to avoid stretching or ripping apart your exposed film.

Overall, i think that the Holga 135BC is a wonderful little camera, great for those of us trying out a plastic camera for the first time, and a great attention-getter in public. I would definitely recommend it!

Style Name: Holga 135Color: Black
My experience with Holga cameras started with the 120N model, which is the medium format film equivalent of this camera. I absolutely love the 120N; I take it everywhere along with my digital camera and tend to get my best photos with it. I decided a year ago to try out the Holga 135. After many rolls shot, developed, and processed by me, it has consistently failed to live up to expectations.

The main problem with this camera is it's lens is too narrow. The classic Holga 120 has a fairly wide angle lens, but the narrow 135 captures only a fraction of a person's view compared to the 120 model. For this type of camera, which has almost no settings to begin with, a wide angle lens is more desirable- it's easier to either take a few steps forward or just crop the final image with a wider lens than having to take 50 steps back to try to cram all your surroundings within the narrow frame. There is a Holga Wide Angle Lens Adapter that you can buy and attach to the 135, but it causes too much distortion for my tastes.

The other issue is the 35mm film. The 120N takes medium format film, which has about 4-5 times the surface area as 35mm. So even though the lens is plastic, because the negatives are so huge, most photos (properly focused) come out very sharp and crisp in the center of the frame with the classic vignetting and blur toward the edges. The 135 produces much smaller 35mm negatives. As a result, pretty much all the photos look pretty dull from edge to edge, lacking any sort of crispness whatsoever. Because of how the 135 is designed, there is no natural vignetting and no light leaks (if you're into that).

If you're considering trying out a Holga, I'd highly recommend the 120 model.

Style Name: Holga 135BC Black Corner VersionColor: Black Verified Purchase
There are lots of mentions of the technical specs and the vignettes and stuff so I'm not going to go deep into it. But I will say the bent corners does work. I have yet to experience many light leaks with this camera. But being a simple and fully analog camera, modifications and fixes are easily done at home. A warning though: the 135 is not as easy to modify and disassemble as the 120.

Many digital buffs like to say there's no point in the inconvenience of film and hard-to-control cameras like this when things like vignetting, grain, and blur can easily be done digitally. All I can do is shake my head and say "you miss the point entirely" to them. First off, the joy of the analog process is a factor. Now I'm sure others will want more solid reasons. Alright. Speed. There are no on and off switches. Photographic moments can be fleeting. I can't tell you how many moments I missed by trying to pull out my camera from my bag, or waiting for it to turn on. With this nifty guy you just lift it up and click the shutter. It's as fast as your hands will go. In addition the lack of controls not only puts your focus on the subject rather than settings, you come to expect "imperfect" shots anyway so once you understand the basics of using the camera you can take shots really fast and not mind what simple settings there are. Another big plus, portability. You may hesitate to bring an expensive DSLR out to a demanding hike or rough neighborhood. But a sub-$50 camera not so much. Also if you're a fan of candid shots, people are less intimidated having this pointed at them than a digital "real" camera. The clumsy clack sound the shutter makes will also alert them far less.

If you are the adventurous types, total unpredictability is a pro.
