The Holga 135 is the little brother (or sister) of the great classic and legendary Holga. The Holga 135 is a small plastic camera for 35mm films. This is the first big difference to the classic Holga. Another difference is, that the Holga 135mm is, of course, a bit smaller. But one thing is still the same, the plastic lens. You get really soft and dreamy pictures with this camera on a 35mm film, so you don't have to modify your old Holga.

There are also some other features like a hotshoe for a flash, or the option to use a cable release. Another good feature is, that you can take doubles with this little plastic wonder.

The settings for this camera are very easy. The Holga 135 has a aperture switch to choose from sun (f/11) or clouds (f/16) and there is also a shutter switch to choose from two shutter speeds, N for daytime (about 1/60 second) or B for nighttime or low light (unlimited).

The camera is really a lightweight and also small. So you can take it everywhere like I do.
I have it almost always in my bag when i’m on my way through the streets.
Another thing I love is the great sound the holga 135 makes when you take a picture. It really sounds like the whole scene is captured by this small thing. The Holga 135 is perfect if you’re often en route.

I prefer taking pictures with the Holga 135 when a black and white or a slide film is in it. So get a Holga 135, take it with you and capture the moments of you’re life.

    i got the regular 135 model for christmas. i love it except for one thing. when i look into the viewfinder, i dont see what is coming through the lens. is that normal? or is mine broke? any tips on how to use this camera i will greatly appreciate. i got the kit from urban outfitters that came with 3 lenses, 3 filter sets, and a flash. i purchased a cable release and the close up lenses and received them today. since i cant see what is coming through the lens i was wondering how im supposed to know when im in the right focal length for one of the close up lenses.
