    I just bought a Holga of ebay and I'm so excited! I've been going back and forth between a holga and a lensbaby but one of my professors told me to buy it and use it for a project I'm working on so we'll see how it does.

    What are your questions about it? There are a lot of things you can do with Holgas which is why I like them.

    This website has some nice ideas with examples: http://shop.lomography.com/holga/galleries/?album=12

    Ebay is a good place to find cheap Holgas and many online companies such as B&H and Freestyle sell them.

    lots of Holga groups on Flickr too. lots of info in them.

    actually most of the info revolves around "there's not a whole lot to know, they are so simple".

    I'm on about my 8th roll now, so I'm pretty new to the Holga, but I'm having a total blast with mine.

    They are as simple as can be! Some terrific photos have been taken with them. It's just kind of a you never know what you're going to get camera.

    Hmm... this seems to be a thread from many moons ago, but maybe someone knows.

    Are these sort of cameras a similar thing to my little Maximus?? http://www.photoforum.com/index.php?showto...&hl=maximus

    I am an avid fan of Lomography and I have a Holga 35mm camera and Diana on 120mm film format. In times of adventure the easiest to buy and look for a film is always a 35mm film that's why a Holga is always good Lomo camera. But Diana creates a more dynamic and unique images, a Diana's touch.

    I have a few of them and I love the results. They are not expensive so you can jump into film photography without breaking the bank.
