The end of the Holga era


Above is probably the last Holga photo you’ll see from me online. Reasons:

1. Cost
Now that Ted’s has stopped doing film, I’m being charged $28 a roll at Photolab. With only 12 photos per roll, that’s just crazy talk.

2. Saturation
With everyone using Polaroid/Holga/Lomo iPhone apps these days, what’s the point?

With all that being said, I am thinking of picking up a Holga 130BC or Gakkenflex (Both of which use the standard 35mm film, which is cheaper to develop and scan).
