    Holgas in Ebay LF

    Is it just me, or does anyone else get tired of wading through all the Holga cameras for sale in the LF section on Ebay?

    You could always type 'Holga' in the words to exclude section in your search parameters...

    there is mis-placed items all over many categories. Howabout a Sinar listed under "other cameras", or a rolliflex. Happens all the time.

    And not just the general LF section but in the more specific 8x10 and Larger sub-section. I have never seen a Holga but perhaps this is the newer, beefed-up version of the MF one.

    If you notice, they have the price in Australian dollars, yet they are based in Hong Kong. All the Holga's are being sold by the same two people, or one person registered under two names. They may not understand what "large format" means, but it is annoying. Fransesco, they are not new versions of the camera, they are medium format.

    Come on guys, misplaced items are an excellent way to get good deals on things. I'm always bidding on "other medium format" deardorffs

    A few months back someone put two sinar P's on mf/lf film. They each went for less than 2k (were similar outfits go for around 3k or better) one went for just over 1,200 or 1,300.

    Aren't holgas like donuts -- cheaper by the dozen and just as long lasting?
