  • Excerpt: Holga 120 WPC is one of three Holgas that I bought from B&amp;H last year.<br />I love Holga very much for non-standard,unique images. 2 images here that I shot with this camera using 6x9 mask and 135 mm film.

A fine wide-angle pinhole camera

Nesster, B&H Photo
23 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Not a bad product - lots of fun to use, in fact. Only things I'd add to the reviews already entered: 1) there's no shutter sound, so I keep having to remind myself to start timing and 2) the frame guides on top don't give a good indication of how wide the view really is, even with the 6x9 mask in. The actual photo is far, far wider! But as always, it's all serendipity. The photos that result have a nice vignetting, ultra wide look that is very charming.

Using this camera as a professional tool

horiaki, Ebay

  • Summary: I am a professional photographer and I bought this toy camera to modify it, installing on the front, instead of the pinhole plate, a high quality lens (schneider kreuznach super angulon f=90mm), but I quit doing that, because I've got wonderful photos with this camera on Kodak Portra 800.

Love this camera

Rob Gould, B&H Photo
17 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Love this camera. Anyone looking to get started in pinhole photography or even panorama photography; start here. My camera was good strait from the first roll. Exposure time- I simply use a cable release and count up to 9 or 15 in day light (depending on how bright and clouds)with Fuji 100 B&amp;W film. It's that simple! Remember to remove the masking/framing plate on the inside. I do this with all my Holgas. That way you get a full view and wonderful distorted edge.
  • Pros: Easy to use light
  • Cons: Rather expensive

Holga 120wpc

kzappaster, Ebay
6 October 2010
  • Summary: It's the cheapest way to get GREAT and WIDE (really wide) pinhole photos. Using Holga 120wpc is a very easy thing and the results are awesome. The photos in many cases are sharper than I was expected. I dislike nothing about it. I'd recommend the camera to anyone wants to experiment into pinhole photography.

  • Excerpt: Cheap easy way to start out in pinhole photography. This is a plastic camera, but don't be surprised if you end up taking some absolutely fantastic photos with it on accident. I love mine.

An interesting and challenging camera.

Digital Dave, B&H Photo
14 April 2010
  • Excerpt: If you are serious about trying pinhole photography this camera is an excellent choice. Since there is no lens it's cheap construction does not affect image quality and it can produce pictures as good as pinhole cameras costing hundreds of dollars more. However achieving good results with any pinhole camera is not easy. Among other things you must deal with extremely long exposures and film reciprocity failure which makes calculating exposure times difficult.
