The Holga 184-120 Holgawood Medium Format 120N Camera with Built-in Lens (Twilight Zone) 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.

      I love this camera and have loved it ever since my intro to photography class in college. The easiness of its controls and the picture that it produces are well worth the price and interest.

        Comments about 184-120 Holgawood 120N Medium Format Camera (Twilight Zone):

        I have been a professional photographer and a hobby photographer. The Holgas help with both. I love the fact that they use film - chalk me up to old fashioned but I love the smell of developer in the morning. I can relax and just concentrate on the image - no worries about exposure, no double checking speed, no white balance, no all the stuff that gets in the way of creating images.

                  Great camera to just get back to the basics' It was great to not worry about white balance, software to "fix" my image and just let the film speak for itself. it brings everyone down to the same level and helps you focus on composition rather then your gear.

                  Using this is easy, gives great photos with the light leaks, plastic lens. It can take some experimenting but you will enjoy the photos you end up with. They make you work sometimes but that is all the fun. Great for art photography.

                      THe Hoga was just plain fun to shoot with. Once you experiemnt with light leaks and shooting conditions you cna produce fun images.

                        Here is a great medium format with a very recognizable image quality.

                        Use: Solid artistic subjects. Pros: Easy to use, good sharpness and reasonably well built for the price. Cons: Requires standard film developing.
