    Thanks for the link Matt, I cracked up when I read this in the sales blurb:

    "Soft focusing, full double-exposure capability, intense vignetting, and unpredictable light leaks all contribute to the Holga's incredible photo eFects"

    Sort of anti-technology huh?
    All for 30 bucks!

    You can get them at Freestyle for $16.99. They also have ones with built-in flash and others with glass lenses.
    You can get modified ones here for $28.95 and up.
    Here's a Holaroid.

    Oops. The one you pictured has a flash, which is here and $24.99, so not much cheaper.

    They sell them at The Museum of Contemporay Art and there is apparently a Lomo shop somewhere in the city but Im not sure where. James M knows.

    Doubt youd find any 2nd hand, why bother? They are very cheap!
    I bought mine on EBAY for $20 and it arrived in 2 weeks.

    Don't forget to save a few bucks for a roll of black tape to seal light leaks. A lot of people tape their Holga's (inside and out) pretty extensively to minimize light leaks.

    That's once more than some!

    Holga lovers claim that's part of the "charm."

    Who knew having to replace a camera that breaks every 2-3 rolls was "charming?" :shock:

    I say smear vaseline on the lens of a Yashica. You still get wierd-looking shots, and at least you don't have to buy a new one every time you change socks. :wink:


    /ducks the barrage of dead Holgas from the plastic camera crowd
    :D
