Holga 120SF Holga Starter Kit

Holga 120SF Holga Starter Kit

The Holga Starter Kit is a fun way to enter the world of medium format. For those people wishing to experiment and have fun with an inexpensive medium format camera, the Holga 120SF can yield some interesting results.

Note! The 120SF differs from the original Holga 120S in that the 120SF with flash requires two "AA" type batteries and does not have a flash shoe

    The format arrow on the back of the camera easily slides between 12 and 16 exposures

    Mostly plastic, including the lens; extremely small and compact one-piece plastic molded body


A Lot of Fun and Surprise Creativity
No More Boring Sharp, in Focus Photographs!
Everything you need to begin your Holga career is right here at your quivering fingertips. Read through the manual, pour over the full color poster, wipe your sweaty, excited brow, pop in the batteries, load up the film, square your jaw, tape up the seams, squint your eyes, breathe slowly and evenly, and release the shutter. You are on your way!

I absolutely love this camera! I usually shoot with a Rebel xsi, but this is so fun for a change and I love the way the images look. :) I would totally recommend this for anyone who's thinking about getting it. Everything that came in the kit helps too. I love the book outlining what the Holga is all about and showing pictures from other people.
