The Holga 180-120 Holgawood Medium Format 120N Camera with Built-in Lens (Oscar) is desired by art photographers the world over and is reminiscent of the Diana camera of the 1960s and 70s. The characteristic vignetting focuses the viewer's eye and adds to visual impact. The standard features from the Holga 120S still include: Hot shoe flash sync, uses 120 roll film for 16 - 6cm x 4.5cm frames per roll. It's perfect for classroom instruction, personal image-making and fine art photos.

Holgas are now available in a Hollywood series. Each camera  comes in a different color and  represents a moment in Hollywood time. Along with the camera comes a story reflecting the movie theme of that particular camera.  

Still retaining all of those fabulous and unique features that made the Holga 120S world famous, this updated model, the Holga 120N, takes Holga photography to the next level.

A Holga has four focus marks on the lens barrel. Simply rotate the barrel to the setting that most closely corresponds to your situation. Feel free to use your own setting that might fall between these icons.

    Comments about 180-120 Holgawood 120N Medium Format Camera (Oscar):

    I was anxious to try the newest Holga as my old one was about ten years old, the 120S.I specifically wanted one with bulb setting and tripod socket which the old one lacked. My new Oscar Holga (the gold one) didn't disappoint. I mounted it on my tripod and took some time exposures using the cable release adapter and LOMO 100 print film (also from B&H) and the shots were fantastic. In classic Holga style the pictures were sharp in the middle and fuzzy on the sides. I chose to NOT tape-up the camera like my old one requires - just to find out where it leaked light.To my delight there were NO light leaks, believe it or not!I use the camera simply for creative expression and I like that it's light weight and gives excellent photos for the money. It's also a conversation piece when people see its gold colorand ask about it. Down side, not durable and lacks multiple shutter speeds and apertures.Try it, you'll like it (and certain colors are free shipping!).

        Comments about 180-120 Holgawood 120N Medium Format Camera (Oscar):

        Works great with daytime shooting, but even with the highest iso film does not take lowlight pictures well. a critical flaw in the design is the the clips that hold the back onto the camera are attached to the neck strap. So if you pull the camera away from your neck too fast the clips will open, drop the back off the camera and flash your film.great for the price and you can get some awesome retro photos with vintage vingeting, just dont shoot anything darker that f8. and get iso 400-800
