    They're great fun! Nasty sound when when you wind the film back but with the right subject they provide interesting results!

    A few of my Lomo fisheye pics here if interested! :smile:

    Hi there! Both cameras have fixed lenses so the can't be interchanged at all. I think the lens quality is slightly better on the Lomo Fisheye so you don't have so much of the flare or unusual effects that are common with a Holga.

    Actually you can remove the lens from a holga but it means undoing 3 of the 5 screws that holds the whole thing together. And there is a fisheye for holga lomo-produced product. I've been considering it but it's about 3times the cost of a holga and I've not been impressed by what I've seen of lomo fisheye camera.
