Holga 120N overview

  • 1Description

One of the most iconic toy cameras available, the Holga 120N is characterized by the unique image quality it is able to produce, along with its modest design and minimal controls. Featured here with a black finish, the Holga is best known for its standard-length 60mm f/8 plastic lens that produces a soft, dream-like aesthetic, which is further accentuated by the inherent vignetting and light leaks caused by the plastic body and simple construction. A choice between f/8 or f/11, or "cloudy" and "sunny", aperture settings is available, along with 1/100 sec. or bulb shutter speed settings and a zone focus system for focusing as close as 3' away. A tripod mount is incorporated into the base of the camera for stable long exposure shooting and a top hot shoe accepts optional electronic flashes. A camera designed to bring the fun back to photography, the Holga is a classic toy camera capable of making some remarkable, yet inherently lo-fi photographs.

The 120N model accepts 120-format roll film and includes both 6 x 4.5cm and 6 x 6cm inserts to record 16 or 12 exposures per roll, respectively. Film is manually advanced between shots using the top winding knob, with the frame progression checked using the rear red window.

Plastic body construction and plastic lens contribute to the distinct image quality, which is characterized by light leaks, vignetting, and soft focus.
Classic medium format toy camera accepts 120 roll film, and the included 6 x 4.5cm and 6 x 6cm film masks allow you to record either 16 or 12 frames per roll respectively.
60mm f/8 lens provides a normal field of view for working in a wide variety of situations.
Zone focusing system allows you to focus as closely as 3' away.
A 1/100th sec. shutter speed setting is available in addition to a bulb setting for long exposure shooting.
Standard 1/4"-20 tripod mount allows you to make stable long exposure photographs.
Top hot shoe accessory mount allows you to attach any electronic flash.

    Holga 120N reviews

    120N Medium Format Film Camera (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 142.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun to experiment Am using the Holga for an experimental photo class at The University of southern Maine. We had an exercise where the students were all blind-folded and were given the task of taking photos with our Holgas outside. We did have monitors. Well, I just developed some of the pics from that experience and they are wonderfully spooky. I love how the Holga captures light and how I was able to take seemingly mundane subjects, (trees, buildings, rocks) and turn them into atmospheric scenes. I know this camera isn't for everyone but I think it's a great tool when you want to experiment with photography and let go of the precision aspect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing & Impressive I got this camera basically to experiment with, and get into the wondeful world of medium format. I got got the pictures from the first roll I shot with this camera. In a nutshell, I was blown away I truly love this camera. It is a fun camera to use, and it is a welcomed break from the digital age. The things that are great about it...everything! I highly recommend this camera for anyone, especially those who want to dabble in medium format, without spending a fortune. Great camera, if I had to do it all again, I would still buy this camera. Love it, love it, & LOVE IT!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from brings back that loving feeling... I was walking around with close to $2500 of camera exuipment on my neck and felt stale, I enjoyed getting out with my camera but had lost the creative drive that once kept me going. I was hesitant going back to film but after shooting my first two rolls there is no regret...the smile is back behind the lens! A few points to remember...it is plastic which makes it a little more fraggle (I've already made a repair on mine), and if your a perfectionist when it comes to framing your shot you may have to let go a little (I've found my viewfinder is a little off from the final image). To sum it up, if you want a camera that will take a picture worth 1000 words...there is none finer than the Holga.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uniquely Holga This is my first Holga and I've been told that each one has it's own identity. It's also my first medium format camera. So far I've shot two rolls of 120 at 6x6 and I'm still getting a feel for it's focal length and shutter speed. It was a little awkward to load the film, but much better the second time since I knew what to expect. I didn't tape around the back or the red window and only got a little bit of vignetting, which I kind of like. Considering picking up a second one and a shutter release cable for some more experimenting and options. They sure do give an interesting result and it's one I personally like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased So far I have only used it twice. It is exactly what I expected from a Holga except the light leaks, but since I'm not interested in the light leak effect, it's fantastic. I shot some simple landscapes with BW film and received some great vignetting on the corners. I love the bulb option on this. I used a tripod with almost all my shots (which was in late afternoon and morning), set it on bulb and exposed for almost a second. I had great negs and prints were beautiful. All in all, I am very happy with it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Overall The Holga is of course, cheap. The shutter is only B or 1/1000 so having a tripod helps a lot. Aperture settings are unique...let's just say there is a learning curve. The film also has to be loaded in a light-safe area...so it isn't like a 35mm camera at all. But that's comparing an orange to a banana. And the Holga is a pretty great banana. It is actually more sturdy than it feels, but I wouldn't test the plastic body too much. Don't let the plastic lense deter you either; the image quality is great for what you are buying here. It is fun to use. The only real reason I had any frustration at all is that it was unclear that the camera NEEDS AN ADAPTOR FOR SHUTTER CABLE RELEASES. That wasn't really made clear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holga - What can you say??? 5 stars if you want a unbelievably cheap plastic toy that allows you to take actual photographs. Yes, ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS!It's like the 1960's all over again. Truthfully, though, the Holga allows you to think about the photograph and not about all of the details modern digital cameras throw at you - white balance, exposure, etc. Digital can get in the way of creativity. The Holga allow you to do things that would be complicated Photoshop adventures with a digital camera - like double (triple, quadruple??) exposures (actually, more that 2 usually just adds confusion) and incremental microclick overlapping exposures. Enjoy, and don't worry. But remember, you only have 12 exposures (more or less, depending on your mood and how you wind the film)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck! the Holga 120N is the most low tech and most poorly built camera out there, but you just gotta love the images this camera can crank out! yes it has it's limitations but what it can do it does very nicely and for the price that they sell at... this really is getting the best bang for your buck, I highly recommend this product.
