From the Manufacturer
The iconic Lomography Holga 120 CFN Medium Format Camera with Color Flash has a gaggle of tasty new features. A color wheel tints your flash with yellow, red, blue, or clear gels. A "B" setting holds the shutter open for dreamy, natural background/flashed foreground images, or pure nighttime long exposures. A tripod nut keeps your Holga steady, and a new 6 x 6 plastic mask yields tighter, sharper images.
The incredible color-flash technology--responsible for quite a lot of heat and bother among the Lomographic crowd--has now been extended to the iconic medium-format Holga. Using a combination of colored flash light and a long shutter exposure, this revolutionary item can create some of the most mind-blowing images that you have ever seen. When this new functionality is paired with the Holga's already hectic characteristics (soft focus, light leaks, vignetting), the results are devastating.
Color Flash Wheel
A plastic wheel assembly inside the flash allows you to choose one of three permanently mounted color gels (yellow, blue, red) or a clear flash. For ease and pleasure, the colors are labeled on top of the camera as well.
"B" Shutter Setting and Tripod Thread
The "Bulb" setting allows you to hold open the shutter for as long as you like. Just keep the release button depressed, and the shutter will continue to exposure your image. This is nice for two reasons: (1) shake-free long-exposures and (2) long-exposure flash effects. In the first case, you can use your Holga to take stunning night shots, filled with streaming ambient light. Just hold the shutter open for about 5 seconds on a city street, and use a tripod (screwed into the tripod thread) for maximum clarity. In the second case, your Holga can be employed for gorgeous flash portraits. Using the "B" setting, activate the flash and aim it at your subject. This has to be done in low light! After the flash fires, hold the shutter release down for a half a second to several seconds. The result: a beautiful dual-effect image with a crisp, flashed foreground and a streaked, natural-light background.
6 x 6 Interior Mask
Traditionally, the Holga used a small plastic mask to take 6 x 4.5 images. This reduced the maximum area inside the camera to a rectangular portrait format. It also served to keep the film tight, protect it from scratches, and hold the batteries inside. Those who chose to shoot the square 6 x 6 format (basically everyone who wanted to really shoot with Holga), had to suffer through rough-shod film and falling batteries. No more! The new 6 x 6 mask, like its 6 x 4.5 brother, keeps everything in place.
Top customer reviews
My only complaint is the hassle of loading and unloading the film and the cheap feel to it, but then again it's a 'toy' camera so I guess that's part of the experince.
I recomend this (more so with the 35mm version) to anyone just looking to bring fun back into their photography.
Take time to understand the focal distance(s) the dial makes it seem a lot larger than it actually is.
my first thoughts when I opened up the package was that it is quite huge and doesn't look elegant at all. very basic simple design and material. compared to the previous semi-disposable lomo's i've used this seems really big for the job.
the film size is also different (bigger) than the regular standard films. my previous lomo worked with any standard film, so I don't know yet if this can pose a problem.
on the other hand, this camera has all the features you need.
final verdict: doesn't worth the price nor the big size
