    I love my box brownie, it makes great photographs! Here's one and here's another. It gives a wonderful old feeling to photographs.

    Mine is a No.2 Brownie, it has a glass meniscus lens and three 'guess' apertures.

    Sam,

    It seems that you're buying the cameras off ebay. Have you thought about Freestyle? They sell Holgas and Wocas and many accessories for both, and seldomly charge more than 6 bucks for shipping. Plus, they are APUG sponsors...

    take care,

    André

    I'd second that. If you can respool of 620, the possibilities are endless. I love my Ansco Panda.

    Buy a Woca. If you're going to be all eccentric and artsy and all, you might as well be able to walk around mumbling "wocawocawoca" to yourself. It can be a lot of fun.

    You should be warned though, that if you wander around muttering 'wocawocawocawoca', you will be in danger of being mistaken for Pacman.

    I bought the Holga FN.
    I wanted the flashunit, because you can switch it off and never use it, but it can still come in handy one day. I choose the plastic lens because indeed I want the crapiest.
    I bought on ebay, because shipping rates are the most reasonable there and because its fairly save.

    Thanks for the help.

    Clearly, you should buy both!

    For me even 20 euro is a significant amount of money. So I've bought one, and be happy with it.
