Holga Camera Giveaway!




Today's Giveaway is hosted by me! 
I love my Holga so much, I wanted to give one away!
Originally, I wanted to do this in December, but the flood took off with the original one I purchased..
So I had to get another.
Below are some sample photos I took with my Holga.

You can do single and double exposures.
It takes black & white film, and color.
It even gives photos the wonderful light-leaks that are ever so popular.
Photos turn out best in good lighting, 
but you get the extra grainy out of focusy ones with darker light.
I love playing around with mine, experimenting, and learning what works best.





Here are some details about the camera:
  • Multiple exposure capability
  • Hot shoe for flash
  • Standard tripod mount (1/4 - 20)
  • Black plastic body
  • Format: all 120 medium format film (color negative, slide, b&w)
  • Aperture settings: f/8, f/11
  • Shutter speeds: 1/125, "B"
  • Lens: Plastic 60mm, f/8
If you don't understand any of that, don't worry, it's not that hard to figure out! 

The camera is brand new, in it's original packaging.
 It comes with a lens cap, a camera strap, AND I'm throwing in two rolls of color film.


Here is how to enter:

1. Follow  this blog,
And leave me a comment letting me know.

2. Like my page on Facebook,

3. Share this giveaway's link on facebook,

  16. Oh my, how I would LOVE to win this! I have been dithering over the purchase of a new analogue camera for ages now and the Holga has been pretty much top of the list. I love analogue cameras. I am 32 so of an age to remember when they were the norm! I just love the Holga, even the aesthetic of it is amazing.
