My Holga 120 CFN Has ARRIVED!

I had been waiting for it for three weeks already. I know, I am shocked too! Usually it only takes four days. Not to mention, Hong Kong and Malaysia are quite near to each other.

So I tracked my order on DHL.my and it stated there “Awaiting collection by recipient as requested.” I was like, “WHAT!” Weren’t they supposed to send it to my house? So I contacted the Customer Service and the agent told me that DHL did not go to my housing area and she gave me two options, I go claim it myself, or they forward it to another logistics company to send it to me. Of course, I told them to forward it.

And the next day, it arrived! I felt so relieved when I saw my package safely in my hands, I opened it immediately. I took out my Holga and all the other things I ordered from the box. My new Holga doesn’t look like a faulty one and I got exactly everything I ordered.

Now I’m going to tame this little boy and have a lot of fun with him. Wish me luck!

P.S. Do you guys have any advice on using the Holga 120 CFN? I’m familiar with the Holga 135 BC, but not with the big brother. Some advice will do me good :) Thank you!

    ahhhhh, getting a new camera is always such a buzz :D I don't have a holga myself though, so I can't give any advice i'm afraid, but good luck :)

    Congratulations! Holga 120 CFN is a cam with a lot of different posibilities, I have only used it with 35 mm films, and the results with panoramic effect and sprockets are great. I'm waiting for my first 120 film to be developed. Have fun!

    Congrats on the new toy :-)) As the Holga is a quite demanding lady concerning light I would recommend to shoot in full daylight to get used to it. Cross processed slide film works really well in this camera, so maybe try a ISO 100 slide film. Here is a shot from my first Holga roll:

    Have fun! Cheers from Germany and a happy new year!
