You’d think it was Christmas or something. Been treating myself to a few little things lately…the kind of stuff nobody would ever buy for me so it’s all good.
After getting a Fisheye camera earlier this year (which I must get back from Miss604), I’ve been interested in playing with a Holga camera for awhile now. Both are made by Lomography and I had seen them in Urban Outfitters a few times while down south but it was always the black kit which I waffled on buying more than a few times. When I stumbled across this army green one, it was a done deal – I had to buy it.
The kit came with all kinds of goodies that I’m still going through including the camera itself (which has a wheel for changing the color of the onboard flash), a roll of 100ASA medium format film, a poster, a neck strap, a couple of different manuals, an awesome book of photos taken with the Holga (The World Through a Plastic Lens) and the funniest thing: a roll of black electrical tape! I knew that people had light leak issues with the camera and had seen some taped up but I didn’t realize it was a feature fully acknowledged in the manual.
So I’ve got it loaded up and ready to go – will have to bring it to some holiday parties and see what it can do. More to come once I get the film processed.
