I have already tried this camera, but I gave that one away ages ago and recently found this one for $3. There is a BC version which means black corners indicating more vignette. As you can see from my example photos below, the original camera already has quite a lot of vignetting.
I was quite excited to try this camera again as every 120 Holga I have tried has had pleasing results. I didn’t really give this one a chance when I first tried it, but my opinion of fantastic plastics has changed since then.
As I was going to London for the 100 heroines exhibition, I decided to take some time to try this camera in an area I have not visited before. I did a web search for places to see in London if you have already seen the top tourist spots. Shoreditch came up as a choice. For fun I thought I would try to capture the graffiti around the area with a black and white film. I loaded a Fomapan 100 with the intention of push processing it to 400. I thought that might add a bit of grain and show off the vignetting.
I absolutely loved my day in Shoreditch, an area I had not even thought to visit before. Everywhere I looked there was something else to see. Using the Holga was easy and the resulting photos are by far my favourite series of photos that I have completed recently. I have already put another film in the camera, a colour one this time. Where shall I take it?
