    The Holga is all about the images you get. I know that some people have multiple Holgas because each CAMERA can have a seperate look it gives the image. It isn't so much abut the equipment, but the aesthetic. Plus, if it dies, is lost, etc. who cares!

    I have a friend who has a Holgaroid that she just carries with her to take random snaps with. The idea being she can always have a camera in her purse, and will always be ready when something interesting presents itself. Holgas are great for that.

    Honestly, I suggest you buy one and try it. They really are fun.

    PS - Also the image above is the best rated image of mine EVER. Go figure.

    I think the Holga would float! That may be the only _technical_ advantage the Holga has over everything else.

    This thread has inspired me to get my Holga's taped up again and throw 'em the case with the Deardorff.

    I suppose the bottom line; it makes me happy.
    That's a guy thing!!!

    BTW this might be going off the topic a little, but, some people take Holga's and Pinhole photography to near cult status. An example is a couple named Victoria Cooper and Doug Spowart. I went to a workshop of theirs recently where they showed some unusual examples of camera they had constructed themselves. They took a road trip across Australia, in a van they had converted into a giant pinhole camera. After backing the thing up to the subject, they'd then pull the blinds, expose the film and drive off. There was something just a little odd about it (to me) .... but ...... they were certainly very passionate about their work (let's just put it that way).

    Some excellent images on their website ([color=#800080]http://www.home.aone.net.au/greatdivide/[/color]) some using 4x5 Velvia RVP50 !
