Holga 120 PC Pinhole Camera

B&H # HO120PC Mfr # 166120
No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • No Lens
  • Soft, Dreamy Images
  • Unlimited Depth-of-Field
  • Moving objects are Blurred

The Holga 120 PC Pinhole Camera is tons of fun. This lens-less camera has a tiny pinhole in the front and is operated by pressing the shutter release, holding it open for however long you choose and making long exposures. No focus decisions at all!

Make long exposures at night (several hours) or short ones (1 second) but you must make the decision about how long to keep the lens open. Mount the camera on a tripod and shoot!

Because of its ability to deliver extensive depth-of-field, the foreground and background will almost always be in focus. Images will be soft with a dreamy, reverie quality about them. Because it uses larger film (120 format), images will be sharper than traditional Holga 35mm pictures.

      Comments about Holga 120 PC Pinhole Camera:

      I haven't had much time with this camera or pinhole photography. Reading online searches of other users of this camera note longer shutter opening times than the camera states. I can't wait to develop the film I am using. The camera has no battery requirementswhich allows me a bit more freedom with no chargers or dead batteries like with 35mm. The idea was to recreate an old looking picture. I think this will fit the bill.

              This camera makes pinhole photography easy. And it's got the option for a square format, which I love. It's light, yea, it's a bit flimsy, but I see it as a chance to not be too concerned about perfection. You'll need a tripod of some sort.
              It's the opposite of digital. Slow, film, etc.

                  This plastic camera offers a fun new way to take pictures. I use it in my photography class and it works great! The pinhole offers a new view and it's inexpensive so it won't strain your wallet! Know that you must wind the film more than it says, otherwise your photos might overlap.

                        i LOVE this camera. In a world where the average camera is so advanced and does everything for you, its so great to have something so simple! its easy to use, fun and a great conversation starter. I highly recommend getting the polaroid attachment for this for some instant fun!

                              I brought the camera to the Smokey Mountains last weekend and it was very easy to use - though I'm somewhat familiar with pinhole camera's, it's been some time since I've used one! I'm waiting to get the film back so I'll have to update the review when I see what the final product looks like!

                                So far I've only shot a couple rolls of film with it, but I'm having alot of fun with it. Breaking outside the box and using a camera like this really helps you be so much more creative and adds a little something special to your photography. I definitely reccomend it!
