Just a quick heads-up, Holga's fine, but if I catch you going anywhere near the Lomographic Society, you're dead meat. Understand?

Man! I am just so jealous. Now that our favorite ebay vendor no longer sells the Zenitar, is the Holga going to become the latest Pentax cult lens?

Beware...The lens doesn't lock. It is just a body cap so you have to hold the lens in place while focusing. LOL, LOL, LOL..What a piece of shit..I love it. It reminds me of one of my favorites the Fuji Flash disposable f11.0 camera...Used that crock of cow dung for Italian Vogue Advertorial years ago. It was soooo bad it was GOOD.

"Oh..Not to worry just a bit of snot, I'll wipe it off once I finish taking the photos for the day...!!!"

Yippppeeeeeeee.....Can't wait...Yeah ANTI SHARP HERE I COME....

I had no idea that moving away from a sponsor had such a strange effect on your lens budget

I was beginning to wonder as you ventured into telephoto mirror lenses, but i am getting seriously concerned that you have spent too long away from canada and are loosing perspective.

I've wanted to try one of those Holga cameras for a while, but to be able to get the same effect without having to fool with film is great. I may have to pick up one of these at some point.

So the truth finally comes bubbling to the surface -- You are trying to get a sponsorship by Holga! Some new equipment to smooth out the focus on that new Spring Fashion model no doubt.

Maybe next, he will get the $1 image stabilization system, you know, the one with a washer on a string
