    Holga CFN - How I Hate to Love You.....Your Flash That Is!

    The Holga Affair - we're all a part of it, we love this blocky plastic camera. With each new model we awe and drool a bit and find new ways to explore our creativity. With the Holga CFN we experience new ways to blend color into our night shots and get gitty at the chance to prowl the night searching for new objects and people to shoot. If you have this camera you may have noticed that without the 6x4.5 mask the batteries which power the flash have a problem of falling out of place. I tried tape (the same electrical tape I use to decorate my Holga) but the heat of summer and the bumps and turns while riding my bike around town caused the batteries to get loose and fall out of place. I even spent a few times in the pub with the camera under my shirt trying to resituate the batteries into place without exposing the film to any light. The main problem besides the flash not working was the tape and or batteries would get in the way and block part of your film from being exposed.
