In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping on Orders over $49

The Holga Holgon MF flash is designed with new model Holga cameras in mind. It fits on a standard hot shoe mount and is a standard flash unit with built-in multiple flash capability and bounce features.

Two flash modes available:

SF Mode (Standard Single Flash Mode)
Each time the unit is triggered, either by means of the TEST button, via sync cord or hotshoe, the Holgon MF will flash only once.
MF Mode - (Multiple Flash Mode)
This mode is to be used with the "B" exposure setting of the new model Holga camera. Each time the flash unit is activated, it will fire at the rate of approximately two flashes per second during the whole period of the "B" setting exposure from the time when the shutter is released until it is closed again. Enables a series of images captured on a single frame.

      This flash does a wonderful job of not only evening out lighting using the Holga 120N, but it can be used to create some pretty neat effects. The exposure table on the back is helpful and it provides adequate output. The recharge time is 4sec. with charged batteries. Totally worth the price as an accessory for the Holga 120N. The only thing that prevents this from being an amazing little strobe is that the head does not pivot.

      Flash had a short, possible in battery compartment. Batteries would get hot and would wear out quickly. Tried to move battery tabs in compartment to prevent shorting/cross contact only to have one snap off. Now it will no longer function.

        This is a very simple and inexpensaive flash which is bright and has a suprisingly fast recycle time. What more could you want?(except maybe a bounce, but you have to pay much more for that)

        Comments about Holga Holgon MF Manual Shoe Mount Flash:

        I needed a small flash that didn't require a whole lot of money to do some outside work. When I first got it, I assumed that I had to position it up close to my subject due to the price and the guide number.

        MAN, WAS I OFF ON THAT ONE!!!! That little flash blasted its way into instant respect, and from that moment on, I knew I had made a great purchase! I immediately ran to my car, grabbed my small umbrella, snapped again, and the results were astonishing!

        No, its not the big-dollar titan that pivots, adjusts, or senses, but if all you need is a good little powerful flash, then this little beauty is worth every penny.

        Just be careful not to handle it too roughly. It can't take any abuse. However, if you take care of it, it will certainly take care of you.

        This flash is great, Still on the first set of batteries after a few sessions. 4x AA batteries.

        Super bright, even when adjusting the exposure like the chart suggests. I made a flash diffuser and things are much better.

        Overall: Great for room and large area shots. Needs to be diffused for portraits and shots within 2 meters.

              I bought two of them and rewired the short adapter cables to a relay to trigger as lightening. I was using them as a special effect in a show.

              It comes with a short adapter cable for remote operation. The hot shoe is generic and will work with older cameras. Requires 4 AA bateries.

                    Considering the price, it does what its supposed to do. While a pivot would be nice, for the price it is not expected. the flash puts out a lot more light than expected, probably too much, a diffuser is probably going to be necessary. A output adjuster would actually be more useful than a pivot. But again the the thing is so inexpensive, you cant ask too much from it.

                    For the price if I use it gives you one good shot, its worth its price. You might as well pay the small amount for the extended warranty, considering the batteries you put in the flash will cost more.

                      I bought this to use on my Holga so I could take lomography snaps indoors. It's no Canon Speedlite, but it does the trick. Plus it works with a bunch of my vintage cameras via PC sync.

                      Too bad the head doesn't rotate for bounce.
