    I took my new pinholga mentioned earlier out for a spin today. Didn't measure the pinhole but guessed it would be around f/170, and the negs look good. Could probably be closer to 200-220, but hey.. HP5+ in Rodinal 1+100 for 45 minutes gives you quite a lot of wiggle room when it comes to exposure. I did bracket a scene at the beginning at f/100, f/170 and f/250 and they all look good. The f/100 one is a bit thin.

    Can't say much before they are printed, but they look as sharp as a holga lens..

    Yes and no. That's explained a little bit in the group's description. If you've handled one or more of these, the answer is you'll know one when you come across it. One thing common to all of them, however, seems to be a chunk of lead inside the bottom of the camera.

    I recently picked up a Diana F+ and a Diana mini, with a flash that works for both. I've loaded them with film, will post some results when I've finished them.

    These are rather expensive things for what they are (mine weren't I bought them used) and the original price tag might put them on the borderline of being excluded from the idea and spirit of 'toy' camera.

    Wel, it is a toy camera in the most proper sense. I have got quite a few toy-cameras. Cameras which are fakes, made to play with.
    They make part of our photography-culture.

    Better have your kids play & shoot with these (toy) cameras than with (toy) guns, uzis, cruise missiles or what ever they are selling nowadays ....

    BTW:
    Here is a small test for you all. Find the real toy camera and tell me why:

    All entries must be in before October 1st, 2013. I'll select a winner and send him a nice little, expired toy TLR camera.
    You may correspond about this contest and the drawing of the winner, but don't expect an answer ...
