Holga 184-120 Holgawood 120N Camera - Twilight Zone The Holga 184-120 Holgawood Medium Format 120N Camera with Built-in Lens (Twilight Zone) 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.

This review is from: Holga Holgawood Series 120N Medium Format Fixed Focus Camera with Lens - Twi-Lite Zone (Electronics)

I bought this camera to take with me on my trip to Europe. I bought black and white film and also color film to use in it. When I received the camera in the mail, one side of the camera (where you open it to put the film in) was broken. It's the same part of the camera that the strap is attached to, so I couldn't wear it around my neck- otherwise the camera would fall right off. The good thing is that you are supposed to tape the camera's edges so less light leaks through. So once I taped it up, the strap worked fine. It's a $40 camera, so I guess I shouldn't have expected it to be extremely durable. Also, it cost me about $25 to develop each roll of film- not including prints! So taking a lot of pictures got really expensive really fast. Needless to say, I was very satisfied with the pictures and they turned out way better than I thought they would.
