Holga 144-120 Medium Format 120N Camera with Built-in Lens
The Holga 144-120 Medium Format 120N Camera with Built-in Lens (Black) is desired by art photographers the world over and is reminiscent of the Diana camera of the 1960s and 70s. The characteristic vignetting focuses the viewer's eye and adds to visual impact. The standard features from the Holga 120S still include: Hot shoe flash sync, uses 120 roll film for 16 - 6cm x 4.5cm frames per roll. It's perfect for classroom instruction, personal image-making and fine art photos.
Holgas are now available in a Hollywood series. Each camera comes in a different color and represents a moment in Hollywood time. Along with the camera comes a story reflecting the movie theme of that particular camera.
Still retaining all of those fabulous and unique features that made the Holga 120S world famous, this updated model, the Holga 120N, takes Holga photography to the next level.
A Holga has four focus marks on the lens barrel. Simply rotate the barrel to the setting that most closely corresponds to your situation. Feel free to use your own setting that might fall between these icons.

I'll be modifying the Holga 120N now instead of the Holga 120S. It seems I caused the Holga factory to take notice. It's been some time now since the factory decided to phase out the 120S in order to bring the new 120N to market. Seems they liked what I did enough to copy my mods.

The unassuming Holga is here to save you from a future of
digital pixels and images shared on small screens on cameras or phones. We
have all become numbed with photography, there is no denying it, but a
chunky camera made almost entirely of plastic has been put on this Earth to
save us. It will reawaken your vision, fill you with joy, make you see

on a cloudy day.
