    I like using an old Agfa "Click III" for 6x6 cm toycamera photography. It pretty does the same thing as a Holga, but without the leaks. It's possible to introduce leaks when needed: just slide the latch off and loosen the back a bit and let light breach into the sides. It's light leaks on demand

    Or else, I could turn to an old cardboard Agfa-Ansco Cadet B2 which makes 6x9 cm exposures.

I am by no means an equipment snob, I use Argus Cs and Zorkis, among other things, but I don't get why one has to buy a Holga to take pics any box camera built in the last 120 years can take. Take a look at Marcy Merrill's work to see what I mean.

    No points missed Mr DBP - just my point made.

    Mr Hicks - sorry - I thought you were dismissing all holga photographers and their ilk as cliche wielders. Sorry if I misunderstood

    Not at all. It is I who should apologize for not making myself clearer.
