Toy Camera: Holga Time!

(All of the photographs above were taken by me!)

What Is a Holga Camera? 

The Holga is a medium format 120 film camera, made in Hong Kong, known for its low-fidelity aesthetic.

The Holga's low-cost construction and simple meniscus lens often yields pictures that display vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other distortions. 

Where Can I Get a Holga?

The Holga camera store of course! Check out this awesome online store that specialized in selling Holga cameras.

Why Do I Love My Holga Camera?

You never know what exactly your image is going to look like! I love that level of surprise and anticipation. Besides the fact that I love all things that deal with film. Holga is a great camera for a beginner wanted to explore film or someone more advanced wanting to have the Holga vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other distortions.

  1. I love how people said film would die and now I see more and more people going back to film. Fantastic!

    Nice photos.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Chrissy!
    There is something so special about film that makes it so different than digital.
    I love digital photography but will never stop using film! :)
