    If he sells any at that price I'm not surprised he loves them :smile:

    Are their men's shoes way overpriced as well? Just wondering...

    I brought a London-based friend an $18 Holga a few years back and he repayed me with lunch.
    I used to believe I made out like bandit.

    I enjoy the irony that they're reselling the LSI boxed version for a 100%+ markup on the LSI. Beating them at their own game!

    That's about the same price as what Urban Outfitters on Oxford Street (london, uk) is selling them for. I know the US price at Urban Outfitters is cheaper a bit.
    £60 at Urban Outfitters http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/in...t=icat,5,shop,home,homecategories,photography


    The Photographers Gallery is still fairly cheap for the bog standard without flash holga if anyone is looking. I think it was in the range of £20-£22 the last time I was there a few months ago.

    Some people aren't happy unless they pay a lot for something. :smile: I think it's marketed more as jewelry or a fashion accessory--and that's totally fine with me.
