    How did it handle?
    Only took one roll, and it was quickly and with boring subject matter on my commute! Anyway, here are a few from that roll. It handles like any Holga just BIGGER. This is some Tri-X developed in HC-110.

    I just got a Loreo lens in a cap and a Holga dslr lens together off ebay. The Loreo, from what I understand has a 35mm fixed focus three element plastic lens that is supposed to give unimpressive results. It also has a waterhouse type wheel with apertures from 5.6 to 64. (64 being equal to a pinhole on this small lens) Looks like fun. The Holga lens looks to have been crudely modified in the back. I'm not sure what the plate behind the lens is supposed to be, but this has a raggedly cut hole in it about 3/16 diameter. Looking through the lens on the camera, the image is a little dark, but focus looks good. (well as good as it get with a Holga) I have no idea what the actual aperture is at this point though. Guess it doesn't make too much difference, it's all about experimentation anyway.

    Nice work, thanks for showing. I like the Bread Truck.
    I like the panorama format, so I'll get we one of those cameras as well. I already have the Holga panorama pinhole camera.

    My wife's friend gave me a Holga 120 recently. She found it in a free pile outside some apartments. Works for me! Just squeezed a roll of 35mm in it, still need to get it developed to see how it fares.

    Richard I love that frame of the "eternal"! The lens is soft enough that it turned the fire hydrant into a white poodle (in my mind's eye).....

    Joy, bliss, surreal images! Keep em coming!


    @cscurrier - haaaaa what a great find! Look forward to yer feelings re the new rig after your first roll!

    Never owned a plastic 120, not sure I will but had I seen that Holga in that heap'a goods in front'a that apt, I'd be on my mantel for sure! Things like that need to be saved'n appreciated. Glad you got it movin again!

    Picked up this little "beauty". It's the best condition I've ever found a thrift store toy camera in. 50mm f/6 lens, plastic viewfinder (as usual on these kind of things), and a hot shoe. It came with a leather strap and a little plastic/leather case as well. The lens stops at f/6 (cloudy), f/8 (partly cloudly), f/11 (sunny), and f/16 (sunnier).

    I haven't finished my roll of film yet, but I'll upload some photos once I do. I have an expired roll of 36 exposure Kodak Ultra Gold (100 ISO) loaded into it.
    These cameras are pretty ubiquitous though it's hard to find two with the same name. Check out my Flickr group:

    Nice group! When is a camera "eligible"? When it's plastic, the lens is a 50 mm and named "color optical lens"? (sounds like fun collecting)

    I have an Imperial Debonair "toy" medium format camera made by the Herbert George Company of Chicago, Illinois. It takes 120 film respooled onto 620 spools. I estimate it's probably about 50 years old or so. It still works and takes decent pictures outside. Haven't tried it with a flash indoors as it takes flash bulbs. I've thought about a bank of LEDs though for a supplemental light source instead of a flash. It looks like this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/12921610...Fc5FMgod4DkAag except it's maroon and has fewer scratches on it. I dare to say it's "Minty"

    There is another version of this camera (only the decals are different) that was the official Cub Scout Camera.

    Shoot more film.

    Not exactly the definition of "toy," but I recently purchased an Agfa Clack that I found on Craigslist for a few bucks and put into good working condition in an hour or so of tinkering with a decades-dry shutter. I've run a couple of test rolls through it and will know how good/bad the images look when I get into the darkroom.

    I like it so much I found another cheap Clack deal on e-Bay and am awaiting its arrival. I plan to covert it to a pinhole camera. These are pretty ideal for a quick Frankencamera adaptation.

    Picked up a Canon Snappy S for $1.59. Does that count as a toy? 35mm/f4.5 fixed.
