I LOVE my Holga!!! I find using tri-x with it and then over developed by a good 5 min. gives me the best results. I remove the battery cover so I get 6x6 with vignetting (If you do this make sure to tape the batteries in because they're bound to fall out mid roll). Oh yeah, you only need batteries if you have the flash so maybe theis wont effect you. And get this, FreeStyle photo supplies now has a whole line of Holga stuff. They make the Woka with a glass lens, and the Holgaroid, a polaroid attachment for it!!! How great is that? it's $100 so I'll wait a bit. Anyway, just get the camera, for $15 you cant lose.
