The Holga 120N is Back!

2017-03-18 4

Nothing but good news all around for the film photography market! The cult classic of the 1980's, the Holga 120N camera is making a comeback this summer after its shutdown of production in late 2015.

Thought to be forever gone in the face of the earth, the guys over Freestyle Photographic Supplies obtained old Holga 120N molds from a found factory. The molds were taken by a factory to begin manufacturing again.

The Holga 120N is a plastic camera and gained its cult status due to its cheap price. It was introduced to the Chinese public in 1982, and was the inexpensive alternative for many to shoot in 120 medium format film. It is known for its aesthetics -- the lo-fi look. Vignettes, light leaks and other distortions make the camera a one-of-a-kind in artistic expression.

    Great news! I broke mine a few months ago just to find out it was no longer made. I was lucky to find one available and I'm happy to know someone is making them again, just in case I break this one too! ;) I think this is my favorite camera at the moment!
