    I know some Holga images are breathtaking but I cant follow the products , there are zillions of them out there. I am looking for plastic lens Holga 6x17 camera. Is there any available ?

    6x12 is the widest I've seen.

    Even the 6X12 is apparently discontinued. Still available from Holga Direct for the "too expensive for a toy camera" price of $99.

    Check out the lomography sprocket rocket. It takes 35mm film but it's pretty wide.

    yes-- the 6x17 holga is a pinhole camera rather than a lens camera. They are available from Freestyle.

    Load some of your 16mm film into a 35mm Holga for some 12 x 34mm images (equal in format ratio to 6x17 cm)

    The Holga Pinhole comes with two inserts, 6x9 and 6x12.
