Comparing Holga and Diana by tomkiddo

“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.”

Taking the Brave First Steps into 120 with the Holga 120N by johnnyw

“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!
