What do you guys think of it?
Probably fun. I think I'll stick to shooting a 120 Holga.
As the saying goes, you'll only get my Leica when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands. HA!
I don't know. I'm not too crazy about the 120 Holga. I know, some people swear by it. I don't like fuzzy, foggy images myself. But hey, if that's your thing...
It's the look. If you want friggin fine art prints a holga is not for you. It's the dream like look that gives the pictures their special touch.
Personally I love simplicity. Photography should not be about EV or focusing, just taking pictures.
Even though I have run a few 35mm rolls through my Holgas, I prefer the square format.
I've tried the 35mm Holga and it's definitely a Holga...soft focus, corner vignetting, etc. Of course, the enlarged images look a little grainier because it's 35 & not 120. I personally prefer my standard Holgas, but I think that the 35 model could be a good way to introduce very young children to traditional photography...better than those cheapo wide-angle point & shoots that you can find anywhere & which have no personality whatsoever as far as I'm concerned.
i took the regular one and "fixed" it so it would let me use 35mm film which includes the rebate and a longer size as well.
Hey, it's dream like in 35mm you want, I have a 35mm pinhole kit lying around somewhere...haven't used it (or even assembled it) yet, but sounds like it'd be right up that alley.
Lighten up, will ya? I don't care for it, but some folks do. Use what works for you. If the OP wants one, he should get one.
the 35mm has never looked as good as the 120 format for me
I shoot Leica everyday and love the crystal clear stuff... but when it comes to wanting to experimental photography and not knowing exactly what you I'm going to get, then I turn straight to my Holga 120N.
My girlfriend, her dad, brother saw the images produced and wanted them too... they all love them! We all shoot 120, the 35mm is a bit disappointing in comparison.
Why not try a Viv Ultra Wide & Slim - a wide angle point and shoot. Great feel to the images.
