    These are beautiful Holga shots. Most of the ones I have seen are just of appallingly bad quality, but these are wonderful!

    Cheers,

    Holga is a cheap kind of fun, good to see you are enjoying yours. I have a 120N with all the lenses. Also have the adapter for use on my DSLR.

    I have a Holga but I never use it :( If I'm in the mood for some film action, I try to get the best quality possible and use my FD-mount Canons or my Canonet.

    I have one in Blue have used it but rarely now because of the developing issue (not quick enough) so use to immediate viewing, pathetic really.
    And yes I do remember the days of 35mm film:rolleyes: well.

    I think the photos I posted are better due to the GF1 that this lens was on ! I feel like I was cheating somehow :smile: it will be interesting to see what the PURE film one is like !

    I see Holga kits being sold for peanuts (relative to digital cameras). Quite interesting how $900 cameras have filter effects to simulate a $50 camera. Love the irony. And love the photos too!

    :laugh1: That is so true, I actually found this lens much better than some of the panasonic offerings!
