Maybe people do, but Holga doesn't cost 200 Euro. I wish they'd built a proper camera, not a toy. It's a pity.because it looks so good.
Somebody earlier said, they might fit a better lens to it, good idea.
does have some tech information -- at 58 and 90 lens, and i think the gallery shots are not as bad as some here are saying -- a few that look as if they were cross-processed, but a lot of sharp and properly exposed shots.
I get the exactly the same page with both links.
If you want good results from a Lomo camera, then buy one of the only real Lomo cameras, the LCA, the Smena, or the Lubitel, and make sure the one you buy was manufactured before the introduction of the LCA+. I have an LCA bought 16 years ago. It's a great little camera with an excellent sharp lens and superb metering.
I'm wondering if Lomo's going to continue their tradition of build quality with this camera...or sadly, the lack thereof. I've bought a number of their cameras & products over the years and most of them either quickly broke or under-performed in a major way. While I love the Diana+'s pictures, it's so flimsy I would fear for its' life if I ever accidentally dropped it. The Diana Mini I bought regularly freezes up in the middle of the roll. Ditto the Lomo 35mm back for the Diana. I like the fact that the Bel Air has a bellows--which makes it a lot more convenient than the very bulky Holga 120 Pano that shoots 6x12cm--but why do I get the feeling that the bellows is going to be the first thing on the Bel Air that's going to come apart? This is a big reason why on the whole I prefer Holga gear over Lomo--the Holgas are in general much sturdier.
I like the concept of this new camera but am unimpressed with the quality of its gallery images.
15% off for pre-order. $250 for 6x12 is great news for medium format. Be interesting to see "normal" photos taken with the camera.
