Summary: A wonderful & fun experience with this simple plastic camera! The 120 film photo images have far more personalty & show much more mood & style than the super sharp images of digital cameras these days. Plus film is a very stable material to save photos a very long time! And negatives can be scanned for image use on a computer or the internet. this model of Holga has an extra B setting for keeping the shutter open for as long as one would wish for low light & night shots.
Excerpt: 120 CFN is the third type of Holga that I bought last year. All of them I bought from B&H.All of them are unique. When I had the first one and started shooting I fall in love with this plastic camera. First of all, because camera is very simple, secondly, because camera produces very distinctive images.Plastic fantastic! Now, when I go out for shooting, Holga is a constant partner of my Hasselblad. Simple,light,perfect for artwork.
Excerpt: I have developed around 6 rolls of film with my Holga 120N. Unfortunately many of the photos were under developed. They were my fault, but with all(?) Holgas having f/13ish, 1/125 seconds, you need a lot of light to get properly exposed pictures. Now I know that indoors or cloudy days really need a flash. My opionion is that all Holgas should have a flash.
Excerpt: Had fairly low expectations - given the dodgy quality of the construction - but hey it's great. Great meaning inconsistent and unpredictable - but that's why you buy a camera like this. Love the format - sort of whet's your appetite for a Mamiya 7!
Excerpt: When I first got the camera I had no idea how to use it so I read through the manual and had no problem after that. The instructions were very clear. It's a light weight camera so it doesn't weigh down my backpack or purse.
