The Holga 120 TLR Medium Format Plastic Camera (Black) invokes the Rollei... but with those glorious light leaks that give your images low-fi appeal. Simply load up some 120 film (and optional batteries if you choose to use the flash), look through the top-down viewfinder, and shoot the everyday to achieve an otherworldly result. Using the bulb setting you can play with exposure times, while the built-in flash adds another twist to what's an already surreal image making device.

Twin lens reflex style - shoots 120 film
Designed with a retro style, top-down viewfinder, the Holga TRL's features include aperture settings of f/8 and f/11, shutter speeds of approximately 1/100th second and bulb mode, a built-in flash with rotating color wheel, 1/4-20 thread tripod mount, internal masks for creating sharp borders, and the Holga's legendary light leaks and low-fi but highly artistic imagery
The recommended film type to use with the Holga TLR is ASA 100 when it is sunny and ASA 400 when it is cloudy or you are shooting indoors. When using 6 x 6cm film you can expect to get 12 shots per roll and when using 6 x 4.5 cm film you can expect to get 16 shots per roll.
Uses 2 x 'AA' batteries for flash operation only (not included)

          I'm about to take a cross country road trip and wanted to have a film camera to come along with me on the ride. What a great purchase! So easy to travel with and it takes such beautiful pictures! I couldn't be happier :) thanks!

          Comments about 120 TLR Medium Format Plastic Camera (Black):

          I love the low tech creative images the Holga Cameras enable the photographic artist to make. BH Photo has a wonderful assortment of these cameras at very reasonable prices. Be aware the plastic lens and light leaks may not be what you are looking for. I, for one, am very happy with my purchase.

          Comments about 120 TLR Medium Format Plastic Camera (Black):

          I'm teaching a medium format class and find the Holga to be a great teaching tool. With the limited functions, this helps beginning students to be able to comprehend what a camera does.

          Comments about 120 TLR Medium Format Plastic Camera (Black):

          is a good lomo, take pretty pictures but is very chinesse made (in the bad way) over lens is just for the view finder, when the film is over, you have to remove it by yourself and roll it into the magazine (totally manual in a dark room), the cover is easy to remove ( you know accidents happen and is not very secure)oh! and it feels as cheap plastic.
          it sounds very negative, but the pictures are great if you use a tripod and "overexpose"
          and the flash is great

            You must read the manual before use it, don't forget to put the batteries for the flash.
            It's a great camera, different and nice!
