Holga 120N: Picture 1 regular

About Holga 120N

The Holga camera was initially introduced to the Chinese public in 1982 as an inexpensive camera for everyday use. Shortly after its introduction, it became an underground artistic phenomena. Using a Holga is an exercise in breaking freefrom dependence on technology, precision and controllability. The slight softness of the images, vignetting and random light leaks produce dream-like, one-of-a-kind images. Now, to further commemorate the 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Holga Glo camera, these models actually glow in the dark Just expose to white light, shut off the lights and watch your Holga, Glow...in the dark Grab it, load and say, "I shoot things Holga."

So fun!!!


from Baton Rouge, LA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is my first toy camera... and I couldn't be happier with the camera. For the Holga, it's less about quality than creative capabilities. This is a wonderful product, simple as pie to operate and yet conducive to multiple exposures and micro-click photography. I LOVE the 120 format film, especially the black and white film I also bought from Adorama.


Holga 120n


from San Francisco, ca  -  Casual Photographer

Great affordable camera. Fun to find the unique look of the photos that come out due to light leaks, vignette, and Multiple exposures.


Fun Camera


from San Jose, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Good camera and fun photos


More fun than a barrel of monkeys!


from Valdosta, GA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I got this on sale at Thanksgiving, and what fun it is. It brought back all the fun of anticipating the results of the shot. Take a shot and no immediate feedback... wait to finish the roll, then wait for the surprise of seeing what you got. Found out that [@] develops the film for $0.84 (that's right, 84 cents!)and I scan them into digital myself. Where else can you have this much fun for that price...?!?


Mucho Fun


from Longview, Texas  -  Pro Photographer

The Holda 120N. Ahhh. Great camera to play with. What I really realy like is that it has a hot shoe on it so you can connect a flash to it. It's built from plastic so it's not going to be as durable as a digital SLR but I knew that going into the purchase. There is 2 f stops (f8 & f11) and 1 shutter speed of 1/100th of a second. The camera is not complicated at all and is fully manual. If you are looking for something auto and durable this camera is not for you but if you are looking to play around with some 120 film and have fun with a camera and make some cool art this is a must get!


Great gift!


from New York  -  Casual Photographer

Wanted to buy a film camera so I got this as a gift for my sister. It's a bit bulky but overall we loved it!


Thinking Holga - You're a brave soul


from Santa Clarita, CA  -  Casual Photographer

If you're thinking Holga you already know about "Holganess." It is well built for the plasticness that makes these goofy cameras so popular. Yes this is WHITE as white can be . Easy to load and unload film. The aperture does work. make sure you buy and use the cable release as it helps big time in getting a sharp shot (sharp Holga shot??? yes you do want a sharp shot as it makes the Holga effect more pleasing). Also, take notes when you shoot so you know what you were trying for when you took the shoot. Then get the film developed pronto so you can compare your photo vision to the result. If you're new it costs about $1 to get a shot developed and scanned onto a CD.


Perfect for some fun, basic photography


from Richmond, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this camera as a gift for someone and they loved it. It is the perfect inexpensive camera to have some fun with. You never quite know what you're going to get when you take a photo with this camera, and to me that's the appeal. You can also get some really fun, artistic shots with it. The main bad thing is ordering the special film and getting it developed.


Nice little film camera in a digital wor


from Mt Vernon, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use it for fun photos using good old film. Easy to use. Intuitive mechanism. I recommend it highly to those who want to have fun with film.

Better price than Lomography


from Chicago, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

Been wanting a Holga for a while and didn't like the prices from Lomogrophy. Much better value with Adorama!
