RIP Holga

Broken Holga

It seems that I’ve blown the flux capacitor (or some such) on my Holga’s flash. The most likely explanation is that the flash was overloaded at some point by a concentrated dose of awesomeness. I tried the ‘Max Breedon Techniqueâ„¢’ of fixing electronics [removing the case and poking the internals with a stick] to no avail.

Oh well, I’ll just have to grab another one off eBay for $25, at least I didn’t get one of those White Stripes ones that cost $180US. I’m also eyeing off the new Holga 135BC, which combines all the Holga’s quirks with the convenience of 35mm film.
