    To me, the main point of using a Holga, is the fun of using a Holga.

    Get real, that looks WAY too good to pass as a Holga.

    (To me the main point of using a Holga is to pat yourself on the back if you get ANY kind of picture at all).

    The point of a holga is to walk around with a holga and see how many people ask you what the heck kinda camera is that?! :p

    Photoshop tools don't go 'clunk' when you push the go button. I still smile, if not laugh every time I snap a pic with my Holga. Holga is an experience, not a filter...............

    Holga is not cool. The same kina of pictures can be taken by any camera you buy for $5 at a garage sale. Just take an ice pick to it, drop it off the roof a couple times, and rub some sand in the lens.

    Now if you really want a kool, attention getting, challenging camera that takes unique pictures, get a Barbie Camera!!! (D70 and 20D owners- eat your heart out!)

    But that one's digital and we all know that The Real Photographers here shoot only film, right? So here's a really totally awsome camera that will make you the envy of all of us here!!! It's the Barbie Squishy Jelly Camera! "Clunk" when you push the shutter- how 20th century. The Barbie Squishy Jelly Camera doesn't have a shutter button- you just squeeze it's little jelly body to take a picture!!!!! Distinctive, unique pictures and it's downright erotic, too, all for only £6.50 !!!!!

    I have seen Holga prints that look as good and better that this one from P Bailey, Terri, myself and other TPF members.

    IMO the problem is it’s easier and more fun to use a Holga them to use PS for this effect

    I'm getting a Holga for Christmas, but I just wanted something to mess around with first.

    photosoup guru I will send you the file now.

    I gave up in the end (it loaded the first time, but then like an idiot I closed it and it just hangs after half-loading now) and found this.

    Download the one called Melancholytron. It might even be the same one.

    Why, thank you, Jeff. :D Don't forget Oriecat. :wink: And we do like our film in those cheap cameras, Goofup, thanks. :p They're admittedly an acquired taste! :LOL:
