    Here are a few scans from the film I developed last night (technically 2 nights ago, but I haven't slept yet). I have a few more I think are decent, but it's 1am and I have to work tomorrow.. Most of the roll was underexposed, or else I screwed up the development process.. (hey, it's been 14 years since i've done it)

    You can click the images to go to their respective flickr pages for 'slightly' larger images.

    I won't pretend to know anything about the development phase (me = a beginner with a digital camera)... so 14 years or not you are better than me

    Not a dumb question if you don't know. :D

    In short, it's an all plastic (even the lens) medium format "toy" camera that is made in China, originally for the Chinese market.

    but here's more info on wikipedia

    Great shots! I love the double exposure.

    Do you have a modified body or lens? I'm interested in that but haven't really had the time. Los Angeles is a great place for a Holga...don't wait another 14 years!
