Lomography Holga 135 | Review

Back in 2011 I purchased my second camera from the Lomography family a Holga 135. It’s a great 35mm camera that restricts you to just two aperture settings, and two shutter settings. The best thing about this camera is that it is simple, with minimal options you are forced to be creative and think outside of the box.

I recommend this camera to anyone looking to explore the world of analogue photography. It is prone to acquiring those legendary light leaks, vignetting and dreamy vintage shots.

Multiple exposures are also fun especially when using a Lomography splitzer. It’s an adaptive cover which enables you to take interesting multiple exposures. The best thing about this camera is that it is easy to use and extremely durable. For a cheap camera it can hold its own ground.

The one thing I would mention is that it is best used in good natural light as you are limited to control you have to respect that fact and play by the cameras simple golden rules. What I enjoy most about this camera is that you can simply sit back and enjoy the moment. This seems to be the selling point for all Lomography cameras as they focus on simplicity and functionality.

I would highly recommend that everyone buys one of these cameras whether you are an ameature or professional photographer as every time I use this camera I remember why I was drawn in to the world of photography in the first place and that is the joy that it gives yourself and others. I know that sounds rather soppy but its all about capturing a moment either for sentimental values or documentation.
