Holga asked snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, to design a camera for the low-fi masses. The free-spirited Olympian and Oakley clothing designer patterned the 135BC Camera - Gretchen Bleiler Edition based on her lively Oakley designs. The 135BC is as bright and vibrant as the snowboarder herself.

Not only is this 135BC funky in the looks department, but as all Holgaphiles know, it also produces that iconic Holga image. Intentional light leaks create vignetting, otherwise known as "soft edges," that turn the everyday scene into an otherworldly image. To intensify the effect, the 135BC also features a hot shoe adapter for adding a flash, a bulb setting for prolonged exposures, and the ability to shoot with any style 35mm film.

Designed by Gretchen herself, the Gretchen Bleiler Holga 135BC reflects Gretchen's personal style. The camera artfully matches with the Gretchen-designed Powder Jacket from Oakley
"Every single one of us has the unique opportunity to create awareness and influence change" is written on the bottom of each camera in Gretchen's handwriting

      Comments about Holga 135BC Camera - Gretchen Bleiler Edition:

      Personally I love simple cameras like Diana and Holga.
      Cameras of this type are simple, with light weight and low price.
      With any one of them you can make wonderful pictures in any environment and you will really like it.
      This camera has won my heart with 35 mm film format and lovely design.
      If in addition you collect such cameras, it for you - the limited edition run. :)
