Just because it's called Holga Filter Set you not necessarily have to use it with the Holga. This is why I fixed some filter from the set with scotch tape in front of the Porst compact-reflex. Take a look at the results after the jump!
A few weeks ago, I ordered the Holga Filter Set in the online shop. I wanted to make a break with the camera purchase and wanted to upgrade my current possessions. I’ve seen only a few photos that were taken with the filter set, such as the photos from permafrost. One more reason to order the Holga Filter Set! I’ve already shot a testfilm with the Holga 135 BC but not yet developed. I also have exposed a few more films with the filters but not with the Holga, but with the Porst compact-reflex. With a lot of scotch tape I fixed the kaleidoscope-filter with and without added orange colour-filter in front of the lens. The advantage is that you don’t shoot blind as with the Holga. When you look through the viewfinder of the Porst compact-reflex you see exactly what falls through the lens. So you can focusing simple that the object of desire is in the center and is copied around it properly.
One small negative point the filter set gets from me, that you can see the form of the filter sometimes. You can see the hole in the middle of the kaleidoscope filter, which is not so pretty.

When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.
