    Like I said, wanna be hipsters who want to attach themselves to something cool. (Analog music, photography, whatever.)

    I was saying that analog was cool, not the customers ;-)

    But... Some tiny percentage of those people (often teenagers) will find themselves falling in love with a medium that will stay with them for life.

    Honestly, I'm a grown-up, dedicated amateur with a reasonable grasp of photography. And I don't shop at Freestyle. If I was a clueless 18-year-old (which I was once) I wouldn't even know where to start. UO might be the only chance I have to randomly stumble across rolls of medium format film.
    My other camera is a Pentax

    Yup. (Distillery District actually, for anyone out there who might be googling it or asking directions.)

    Anyone with a suggestion for a place to buy a Holga in Toronto for less than UO?

    You guys haven't been to a CVS and paid $7 for a single roll of kodak super de-duper 800 speed which was probably baked in the delivery truck and 2 days before expiration date.

    There's a guy down in Watertown New York that sells Holgas and holga mods, but I forget the exact url of his site. Going to cost you about $30 for a new one from him unless prices went up.

    they charged me a small fortune ...
    i wish i had shopped around, even with overnight shipping
    it would have been cheeper than what i paid

    i can't comment on the cost of film though,
    i get all mine 2nd hand from friends ...

    Interesting - In the UK, in Birmingham, there is an Urban Outfitters, and I noticed a few months back that they to have the Holgas, etc. Plus also a plastic fish eye camera which takes 135 film.
