I finally bought my 'own' Holga 120N few days ago. I was hesitant to buy it for long time but finally gave in. Here's why...

Of course I couldn't resist the deal that Freestyle was having at their retail store.
Holga + 5 rolls of B&W films for $29.99

but bigger thing was, when i saw few students brought their brand new holga bought from Freestyle to school

As I was checking them out I noticed they fixed the 'aperture' problem. so the Holgas now have two different aperture that works.

They also changed the film advancing knob. the sound is different. Click sounds are much louder... and some what more annoying.

The two holes inside the camera, right above where the lens is, are now covered.

Have you noticed any other changes?

Holgas are great for their hidden suprises , I just bought my wife her third holga, bright yellow.
Lots of my friends use them for their unique problems , thats what adds the character.

By the way she uses 400 for fast light and delta 3200 for low light and we process normal with good results.
