Holga 188-120 Holgawood Medium Format, with Built-in Lens (Commando)
The Holga 188-120 Holgawood Medium Format 120N Camera with Built-in Lens (Commando) 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 - The Commando (Electronics)
There is no need to go on here and talk about Holga cameras, Holga culture, or toy cameras in general as there is plenty available on internet. It shoot 120mm film and it does a beautiful job for what is; an all plastic camera. I also want to add that The Commando version of this classic camera is a pleasure to own...it attracts a lot of attention and is always a conversation piece and hey, how many out there can say they own a camouflaged camera?
