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.

Summary: this is a beautiful, easy to use, great camera. although it was originally meant to be used as a toy camera, it now has a large community of fans who love to use it for it's unique qualities and for the unusual pictures it produces. I recommend it to anyone who loves photography and loves experimenting with different kinds of cameras and different kinds of film.
Summary: The camera was for my daughter, she absolutely loves it although 120mm tends to be expensive we got the adaptor for it and she has been using 35mm film, this film is also less expensive to develop than the 120mm film. The body of the Holga is made out of all plastic so it IS a toy camera, but supposedly it takes great pictures...(don't know yet since i took 2 rolls to be develop yesterday)We'll see how the pictures come out, but for fun and inventive shots should be ok!
Summary: Had a Lomo Diana F+ previously which broke so decided to replace it with a Holga. The Holga is generally cheaper and sturdier than a Diana. The Holga has a harder, thicker case; the fittings are also more secure. However, it didn't make it heavy at all and its small, light size fits easily into a coat pocket.
