    Hi there!
    I don't know much about Holgas but I've heard that they are great cameras, would you tell me something about them?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Santino, there are a few Holga threads on this site...check them out.

    As far as I know...Holgas are something of a "toy camera". Made mostly of cheap plastic they are notorious for light leaks and usually have to taped up.

    Because of this, there is an artsy style or feel to the photos from a Holga. That's what people like...that and the price...they are usually dirt cheap.
