    I've got one. The camera itself is pretty good for the price. The included plastic lenses are not so good. I have ordered the two new "Russian" glass lenses that have been designed for the camera, but haven't received them yet.

    If you are curious, I've written more about the camera at my blog (in three parts):

    My other camera is a Pentax

    Thanks for the links to the review and blog posts. Sounds like a work still in progress. Or maybe that's the whole point of Lomo cameras. The glass lens at $199 does seem a little steep. Does the glass lens have more fstop choices? Guess focus, unknown shutter speeds and two fstop choices. A good camera to use if trying to avoid rigid techical control.

    These cameras are very expensive for what you get and the results leave a lot to be desired...

    Here's a much better and less expensive alternative that produces better results.



    Here's how to make your own.

    Excellent.

    Sometimes people comment on my DIY 6x12 camera and ask for advice. I often suggest the option of using the 6x12 Holga or the 6x12 pinhole version as a donor body.

    I have maintained for years that there's a perfectly good 6X12 hiding in every 4X5. Some folks have responded that they want to print the film rebate. Ok. Point taken. In that case my method doesn't work.

    I'll grant you that the converted Holga looks a boatload smaller than my converted Polaroid. So convenience can be a big determining factor, too.
