Inexpensive fun to have

Just had to get this; the expense very reasonable. On the D7000 set-up as a Non-CPU lens (page 159 ~ 160 of user maunal) then read info about M or A modes (page 270) so the camrea will meter. Then ... Holga fun on your DSLR.

Fun lens!


from West Palm Beach  -  Pro Photographer

Once you learn this lens characteristics, and you nail the focus and framing, it's a really fun lens to play with - Especially for only $25! Absolute must for the 'fun' shots.

Fun Lens


from Atlanta  -  Casual Photographer

This was a fun lens to add to my collection. It is exactly what is is advertised as: the classic Holga toy camera lens for a DSLR.

fun, but doesn't replace the film holga


from New Haven, CT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I really miss the surreal photos I used to get with my film Holga, so when I saw this I immediately purchased it. For the price it's a nice toy to play with. You definitely get that "dreamy" soft focus, but it obviously cannot replicate the light leaks that are a hallmark of the Holga look. Even so, it's a fun (and cheap!) lens. Compared to say, plastic optics in the Lensbaby lineup, it's an absolute steal!

Inexpensive and fun!


from Washington DC  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is an inexpensive plastic lens. The shots tend to be blurry with heavy vignetting. However, that is why one purchases this lens -- it gives you the toy camera look, and it is done in the lens rather through software. The mount attaches fine on my 60D. It is very light weight. The lens is just a pinhole, so you need a lot of light to see what you are shooting. A tripod is recommended. This lens is a lot of fun and it is a nice diversion from more sophisticated lenses. I give it 5 stars because it does what it is supposed to do.

Fun, but you get what you pay for


from Bellingham, WA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this as an experiment and it has been a lot of fun. It is odd to put a [$] lens on a $1000 body, but why not? You do get the Holga effect. On my D7000 it works in bulb mode only where the shutter is open as long as you hold the shutter button down, so exposure is a challenge. All that means is that you must expect to spend time in Lightroom or Photoshop to get useful images. It is more fun and engaging than the various holga effect apps on my iPhone. So I recommend it, especially because it is so inexpensive. You can't go wrong, as long as you understand what you are getting.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MICHAEL T  I was just curious about using a Holga lens on my D300 since I have been using a Lensbaby. It's a little bit of a challenge using the lens since the aperture is fixed to F/8. Using this lens will push your creativity as well as your patience.
Shopper  Sorry, I have a question, this lens works with a Nikon SLR camera, like a Nikon F100, Nikon film cameras?
TAMMY U  I would assume that as long as you have the same mount that it would. It is completely manual. Just be aware that you need A LOT of light for this lens, just saying so you don't waste a ton of money on film just to come out with black images.
Shopper  My camera is said to need an auto focus lens because its a film camera, I just want one that will fit and work. Will this be ok?
