Hey, I love my digital camera and gear, there is no question about it. BUT, I also adore my Holga and have won awards and sold many prints of photographs I made with the Holga.
Rebecca's Garden - a Holga photograph
In fact, I bought a lens adapter for my pro digital Canon camera so that I can now make digital Holga-like images. It’s cool, but there is something magical about working with the real, plastic, light-leaking Holga.
Because you control everything and yet NOTHING about this camera, if you want to grow as a photographer or any sort of artist, give the Holga a try. It is inexpensive. The film is cheap and you can have the images placed on disk if you don’t want prints of the entire roll.
