The Holga 135 BC is a compact 35mm camera that has all of its big brothers best characteristics built in. IT is simple and easy to use and that you will be glad to have it around.
What makes the Holga 135 BC that bit different is that it has a small mask inside the camera that darkens the corners of your photos in order to give you that really cool vignetted look.
It has the same lens mount and focusing as a Holga 120 which is really easy to use. Two shutter settings, N and B (for longer exposures). What’s also cool about this camera is that it can be used with a tripod and it is threaded so that you can use a cable release if you want to use the B setting but without any blur. It also has a hot shoe so that you can attach a flash unit to take photos indoors or at night time.
The Holga 135 BC is a really cool camera to have, that gives a really cool look to you photos, and because it is compact and easy to use, you will end up taking it everywhere. One side note that i thought that i would mention, is that make sure that when you get your photos developed you ask them not to crop your photos because some places will crop your photos down which means that they end up cropping out the darkened corners of your photographs which is a pain in the behind!!

Who do you think deserves the crown for the best 35mm SLR camera? Canon and Nikon will always be in a two-horse race to the top spot in the consumer to prosumer SLR/DSLR market, having developed reputations as two of the biggest go-to brands. Representing the Canon corner, I can safely say the Canon EOS-1N is by far the best SLR I have ever used.

The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots.
