Friends, I think I am entering Holgaland. I have lately been dissatisfied with my Nikon point-and-shoot and even my iPhone isn't taking the pictures I want. I want to introduce a level of reality mixed elements of artistry and creativity. Basically bring a little more life and originality to the pictures I take. I like the unpredictability of a Holga (and it has the coolest name - so pretty and Scandinavian-sounding) as well as its excellent price point! In an ideal world (someday), I would be able to afford an SLR, but for now I think this Holga camera could be a cool experiment and a chance for me to flex my creative muscles in a new way.
I found a Holga starter kit online for $60, but I would love any advice (good places to purchase Holgas and accessories, general tips for first-time users, anecdotes from your Holga experiences, etc) that Holga users would be willing to share!
