I suppose the bottom line; it makes me happy.
That's a guy thing!!!

BTW this might be going off the topic a little, but, some people take Holga's and Pinhole photography to near cult status. An example is a couple named Victoria Cooper and Doug Spowart. I went to a workshop of theirs recently where they showed some unusual examples of camera they had constructed themselves. They took a road trip across Australia, in a van they had converted into a giant pinhole camera. After backing the thing up to the subject, they'd then pull the blinds, expose the film and drive off. There was something just a little odd about it (to me) .... but ...... they were certainly very passionate about their work (let's just put it that way).

Some excellent images on their website ([color=#800080]http://www.home.aone.net.au/greatdivide/[/color]) some using 4x5 Velvia RVP50 !
