The Holga is an inexpensive 120 film plastic camera made in China. It has a problem producing quality photos which has attracted many photographers to add this camera to their array of equipment and many of the photographs produced have received lots of attention for their distorted look. There are many variations of the Holga camera from the 120S with its fixed shutter speed and plastic lens to the 120GFCN with its color flash and glass lens. Once you see some of the photos people have produced with the it, you may be convinced to buy one of these cheap toy cameras to play around with seriously.
