    I've never came across anyone with a Holga, and only once someone with another camera out of the Lomography range.

    Just curious, what does she do with SIX of them? I have three. One set up permanently for 35mm sprocket-shot work, another with an attached cable-release for tripod (which makes it harder for use on the street hand-held), third one my main use one for 120 that is a custom-painted 1960's pastel job. But six?

    Sorry, I did not want to appear rude. However, I can take a picture with an M2 and in the darkroom, or through Photoshop make it look like a Holga image, but believe you can't do the reverse. But then you may not want to, but at least I have the choice.

    Sometimes we get caught up with sharpness , tonal range, clarity.

    One of the main reasons my wife uses Holgas, is the complete ease of use, Kids get a kick out of her working with these cameras and parents are less threatened when she brings out the funny
    coloured cameras.

    Her work trancends time to when our grandparents pulled out the box camera and took images to record their lives. I think of it as a tool to make her work better.

    I personally use some really crappy old cameras for specific reasons, and am now biting at the bit to get a 8x10 Titan from Harmon... its just a dam hole in a box , but with the right
    mindset ,some magic may appear.

    Looks like an upscale version of the poor excuse of a camera I made out of Cardboard in my first year of photoschool.

    Im sure in the right hands ,,, magic would happen.... I cannot help but think of Joseph Sudek and the great imagery he produced with less than perfect equipment.

    I find that the mindset I have, and how I look at what I'm aiming the camera at when I shoot with a Holga is completely different than with a more traditional camera, so even if I can make an image exposed with more traditional gear look like a Holga picture in the darkroom or on the computer may not mean I've made the best picture for that look.... if that makes any sense whatsoever...

    I like the way the Holga makes me look at the world, and I like that it's a different way than I see it when I'm using a Mamiya or something.
