Finally I have photos of all my cameras (to date) to show to you.
This is my Holga. It’s a Holga FN which means it has an inbuilt flash.
The gaffer tape around each side (and there’s a small piece on the bottom) is a safety measure. The metal clips that hold the back on the camera are really easy to knock and so there’s always a risk of the back falling off the camera and runing your film.
That’s part of what enthusiasts love about the Holga though – it’s imperfections!
If you want to know more about the Holga I recommend www.squarefrog.co.uk for getting started and practical tips, plus Michelle Bates book “Plastic Cameras: Toying with Creativity” (ISBN 0240808401) for advice on technique and thinking creatively with your Holga.
