      I bought it for an old Optima camera. It charges up quick. The chart on the back I have to learn. It fit the shoe fine.

        Comments about Holga 12MQ Electronic Quick Flash:

        I use the flash on a Olympus Pen EEs.2 from the 60's. The flash works perfectly for basic close portraits and has a very fast recycle time. Recommend for Holgas or any other small 35mm or 120 film camera.

        Not a big fan of the foot, as it does not have a locking mechanism, but it still fits snugly into the hot shoe.

              Comments about Holga 12MQ Electronic Quick Flash:

              Well to start off I used this flash with the Holga 135 (35mm film) but it will work with any camera that has a hotshoe. The flash is light and portable and doesn't make the camera tip over like some flashes. It was very easy to use right out of the box you just put in 2 AA batteries and slide on the hotshoe. It is a small and affordable flash but it gets the job done perfectly!
