The Holga camera was initially introduced to the Chinese public in 1982 as an inexpensive camera for everyday use. Shortly after its introduction, it became an underground artistic phenomena. Using the Holga is an exercise in breaking free from dependence on technology, precision, and controllability. The sharp center, slight softness at the edges, vignetting, and random light leaks produce dream-like, one-of-a kind images.
The HOLGA 120GCFN has the same body and masks as the classic 120N, but comes with a built-in flash (no hot shoe) and the lens is made of glass. The built-in flash has four color filters to choose from: white, red, blue, yellow. It’s perfect for daytime fill light and night time party and front-row concert photos! Use different colors with multiple exposures and the possibilities are endless. The glass lens offers the same edge softness and vignetting as the original plastic lens, but offers added protection against scratches or scuffing.
