    Comments about Holga 12MQ Electronic Quick Flash:

    What do you expect for this price? Manual was not helpful. Actually caused me to insert batteries in reverse order. No harm done, and worked OK when I tried them in reverse. Recycles quickly, and works with remote trigger.

      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.

      • Cheap
      • Does the trick
      • Fast Recycle
      • Small

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Parties

        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!
