Still retaining all of those fabulous and unique features that make the Holga world famous, the Holga CFN Starter Kit takes Holga photography to the next level. This remarkable camera has many fascinating features. By rotating its color wheel, you can tint your flash with yellow, red, blue, or clear gels.

The incredible color-flash technology has been extended to the medium-format Holga. Using a combination of colored flash light and a long shutter exposure, this revolutionary item can create some of the most mind-blowing images that you have ever seen. When this feature is paired with Holga's characteristics (soft focus, light leaks, vignetting), the results can be awesome.

A "B" (Bulb) setting holds the shutter open for dreamy, natural background, flashed foreground images, or exciting nighttime long exposures. A standard 1/4" x 20 tripod nut holds your Holga steady, and a 6x6 plastic mask yields tighter, sharper images.

Color Flash Wheel
A plastic wheel assembly inside the flash allows you to choose one of three permanently mounted color gels (yellow, blue, red) or a clear flash. For ease and pleasure, the colors are labeled on top of the camera as well.
6x6 Interior Mask
Traditionally, the Holga used a small plastic mask to take 6x4.5 images. This reduced the maximum area inside the camera to a rectangular portrait format. It also served to keep the film tight, protect it from scratches, and hold the batteries inside. Those who chose to shoot the square 6x6 format (basically everyone who wanted to really shoot with Holga), had to suffer through rough-shod film and falling batteries. No more! The 6x6 mask, like its 6x4.5 brother, keeps everything in place.

"B" Shutter Setting

Allows you to hold open the shutter for as long as you like; Just keep the release button depressed, and the shutter will continue to exposure your image
This is nice for two reasons:
  • shake-free long-exposures and
  • long-exposure flash effects
  • You can use your Holga to take stunning night shots, filled with streaming ambient light
    Tripod Thread
    Allows you to take more dramatic images since the camera can now be screwed to a standard 1/4-20 tripod thread for additional stability

        Comments about Lomography 120CFN Fixed Focus Camera Starter Kit:

        I started using this camera to add a some more artistic options for my clients to chose from at their photo shoots. This camera works great! Not a lot of moving parts and super inexpensive! It produces clear pictures, but - with a little tinkering- can produce some really artistic looking shots (with light leakage, double exposure, etc) I will say that the multiple exposure feature is almost too easy. It's not hard to forget to wind the film forward and then accidentally end up with a double exposed shot! Sometimes the batteries that power the flash seem to pop out of place, but that can be fixed by adding some padding to hold them in tight. All in all, a GREAT purchase! And for the price, you can buy a bunch and customize them to produce all kinds of different images.

          Comments about Lomography 120CFN Fixed Focus Camera Starter Kit:

          I wanted to get into Medium format film and this was a very cheap way to do it. I also find the Holga gives me different results than I had in my head, which I really enjoy.

          The kit is wonderful, and I even enjoyed the book that came with it. My only problem with the kit is I don't know what type of film came with it. It just says "120 film", not color or B&W or ISO. Oh well, 16 shots of unknown.
