Whether you’re a pro or a novice, this baby doesn’t care. It’s so simplistic that anyone could use it. All you have to do is load in the film, wind it up, point and shoot – it’s really that simple.
Best of all, it’s so compact and lightweight that it’s perfect for traveling. I flew from New York City to San Diego and back with this in my carry-on and not only did it hold up, but it made my trip that much more memorable. It may be plastic and not have a flash, but this little cam can take some seriously beautiful photos.
I have to admit, with a plastic lens I was a little worried that the pictures would come out distorted or blurry. Boy oh boy, was I wrong.
The camera features three focal options: portrait, large group and landscape. You also have a switch setting for sunny or overcast skies. As long as you’re shooting with some sun, you’ll end up with some marvelous medium format photos. You can even add your own artistic edge by taking multiple shots on a single exposure. So for clarity’s sake, since there’s no flash it’s not recommended you use this in the dark or at night – unless you plan to develop a roll of blanks. Besides that, there’s no setbacks.
The Holga 120N plastic film camera is available through Amazon for just $40, and it’s well worth it. Although it doesn’t come with film, you can use any brand of 120mm that you like. I’ve used both rolls of Fujifilm and Kodak and had excellent results, so it all comes down to your own preference.
