Holga 135 with Color Flash | Your Biggest Friend from Now on!

13

I was suprised that there isn't any review about the Holga 135 color flash on this website. So here it is! I can be very quick about this little fellow. You just put an 35mm film in it, wind it...and there you go! I take it everywhere I go....read on and you find out why.

I was suprised that there isn’t any review about the Holga 135 color flash on this website. So here it is! I can be very quick about this little fellow. You just put an 35mm film in it, wind it…and there you go! I take it everywhere I go….read on and you find out why.

Except for the double exposure feature it’s got all the great advantages every other Holga has BUT you can just use 35mm film and it has a flash inside it (so no hotshoe or anything like that!).

And about the flash….there are colorfilters attached to the camera which you just slide in front of your flash and so you create a nice red, yellow, blue or green filter. Actually most of the time I don’t really use the flash but it’s handy that it’s on there just in case.

I don’t cross process any of my pictures and still the colors are amazing! Hope you like it and my gallery as well.

Oh and most important: this is probably the cheapest fellow within the Holga family!!!

    Hey guys, I'm talking about the Holga 135 with Color Flash as you can see in the name....i has a flash. The Holga 135 hasn't got a flash, so don't mix those two :). The upper camera is not the right picture indeed, i did send another one to Lomography but they seem to have placed another one (don't know why...).

    Seems like they produce it under another name: Holga K200N. Same camera, different name:

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
