Holga Film Camera

Yes. . . film! The Holga is a cheap plastic camera that uses 120 size (medium format) film. What makes it unique is that the poor plastic lens and low-quality construction of the camera itself produce images with distorted views, blurring and vignetting. While those issues may not be desireable in most situations, they can help create very interesting images. In other words, it's a fun camera! The simplicity of the controls is a nice break from the sophistication and complexity of professional digitial gear.
