    I actually saw one of the Holga TLRs this weekend. If you'd come to f295, you would have, too.

    I'm a bit confused though - does the focusing screen actually work with the lens? Or is it just a bit gimmicky? (That said, it does look great, but I just can't see how it works...)

    Comments seem to indicate the second lens is little more than a large bright viewfinder, as there is no linkage between the viewing lens and taking lens, making it useless for focusing. Perfectly in line with the Holga philosophy.

    Next year's Superbowl is XLIX. Easier to pronounce than XLVIII. Sounds like XLAX.
    I hope that doesn't mean we won't be able to stop the run...

    Yeah, it wouldn't make sense for Holga to make something that complicated...especially since even the Blackbird Fly doesn't have a proper focusing lens, and it's a much more intricate beast than a regular Holga.

    Couldn't they at least make it look more like a Rolleiflex?

    (just kidding ... I'd love to try one of those btw)

    I actually considered ordering one until I got to demo it yesterday. The viewfinder is like that of the Blackbird Fly, it's round not square. WTF? Okay, it's not a ground glass but what good is a round image when the exposed film is square. Makes no sense to me and the freestyle fella tried to explain how it would be to $$$$ to make it square. hmmmmm.

    Who uses a viewfinder with a holga? Its more accurate to just point it at your subject

    @Fotophox: some Brownie's made sharp pic's, I have one, a 6x9 120 format and it is realy fun.
    Never knew that Holga's were made to make sharp pic's though.
