One does not become a cult classic by simply resting on one’s laurels. It requires hard work and actually delivering consistent results, something that the Holga 120 has done in spades. In this week’s installment of Reviews on Rewind, we bring you community reviews of boxy plastic companion!
“Treat your Holga to a sunny afternoon out in the park. Fool around a bit, and before you know it, you’ll be in one of the best, weirdly dysfunctional relationships you’ll ever have in your life.”
“So if you ask me which camera is better, I will say the Holga. I find it more comfortable to shoot with. The Holga is more of a practical camera while the Diana is more of an accidental camera.”
“Colors have always been my priority in my design and in everything I see, even in the ads. To cut short, I love colors, oh so much and that was the reason I reached for the Holga 120GCFN Multicolor Version”
“The colors are vivid, the vignetting effect is great and it allows you to guide the eyes of the observer to the center of the image!”
“Something about the old black and white medium format photography of my favourite photographer, Diane Arbus, inspired me to finally give it a chance. The Holga 120N had an air of mystery, a certain charm that came with such a simple plastic toy camera with such a huge cult following.”
The Holga Family is known for its saturation, shadowy vignettes, and dream-like scenes. This iconic camera clan will definitely steal your heart with its plastic charm. Head to our Shop and see which Holga is for you!
