The Holga 120 PC Pinhole Camera is tons of fun. This lens-less camera has a tiny pinhole in the front and is operated by pressing the shutter release, holding it open for however long you choose and making long exposures. No focus decisions at all!
Make long exposures at night (several hours) or short ones (1 second) but you must make the decision about how long to keep the lens open. Mount the camera on a tripod and shoot!
Black Holga 120 PC Pinhole Camera - Left Top Angle
Because of its ability to deliver extensive depth-of-field, the foreground and background will almost always be in focus. Images will be soft with a dreamy, reverie quality about them. Because it uses larger film (120 format), images will be sharper than traditional Holga 35mm pictures.

The Holga 120WPC Pinhole Panoramic - Review
Well, I shot my first roll of Ektar 120 earlier this week, and developed it last night with my Nova Darkroom Pro-Speed 41 C-41 Press Kit. The results were fantastic. I cant wait to shoot more with this little (actually, its pretty wide, heh) baby.
