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.

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:

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 3

    “Let me tell you about my life turning blue”. Those were the first words the guy on the bench said as he sat down beside me whilst I was eating my lunch. Usually, I prefer to eat alone but there was something about this opening sentence which really intrigued me; so I told him “Sure buddy, go ahead. Tell me about your life in blue”.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    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 Magic Yet To Come: Part 4

    Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
