Ron,
They're in HK too. How long did it take to get to you?
Well mine got lost in the mail the first time. I sended an email about it and then I got a new one shipped in about three weeks. Great service from them.

I ordered mine from Holga directly as well and got it in 2 -3 weeks.

Btw, don't buy these from eBay.
Last time I checked the flash was $2 more on eBay than directly from Holga .

Looks interesting. Amazon UK have a more blocky-looking version in various colours for GBP12.99.

Of course, I could just stick a filter over my K200D's flash, which is GN 14 I think.

Aside from that, if you want a small, basic flash to use off-camera then they won't come cheaper than this.

Hello this thread! Is the surrealistic colour there by default or is there some trickery involved?

Just using the filters infront off the flash. In that way you get coloured images. I like the green and yellow. You can still convert thenm into black and white images, but I make them for the color.

You know, i'm really stupid -- but the K-01 has a flash... already? Stronger than the Holga one? I mean, if you just want to make it look cute, you could probably glue all sorts of things onto it! And still use its built-n flash.

Too bad, BTW, that neither the Holga or K-01 flash has a CTO light orange filter you could switch to.

You are right about that, but the Holga gives some instantaneless coolness to the yellow brick that isn't intimidating, but fun.

It also moves the flash 2-3 times higher, so there's less chance of shadows from the lens (a common problem with modern beer-barrel lenses, even with the hood off). But the primary reason I want one is: it's fun!

Also, less red-eye. I can't find RE removal anywhere in PDCU or among the in-camera processing options, so an external flash is very useful.

Well, it's going to be a long winter, and I'd put it to you guys to really get out of the box, stick a flashtube (like the Holga) in, say, an artificial lemon. Which would look amazingly beautiful on that yellow K-01!

Since the filters on the Holga are attached with a single screw, it wouldn't be too hard to add a custom filter with some clear plastic and/or filter sheet...
