The Holga 186-120 Holgawood Medium Format 120N Camera with Built-in Lens (Blooze Brothers) 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 WILL USE THIS IN MY PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS. I THINK IT IS GREAT BECAUSE IT IS VERY WELL CONTAINED AND WILL TAKE SOME ABUSE TRAVELING TO AND FROM SCHOOL.
          IT HAS A COMPACT DESIGN THAT WILL BE INTERESTING TO LEARN TO USE!

                [...] Moded it for 35 mm film, and works decent for the few test runs ive done. (Tips for moding- only use black electrical tape to cover windows, find a pro film place)

                The Holga will take you back to the days of truly considering your subject before pulling the trigger. I use my blue body to shoot color film. I use my black/silver body to shoot black and white film. This is a great way to keep organized and versatile. Great little cameras and affordable as can be.
