News Flash...Revisited ;-)

Just in case you didn't get the news, I have decided to change to another system. To all of you at Pentax Forums, I am sure you will understand the reasons. Here is the Press Release:

New Official "HOLGA" Announcement from API
API News August 10, 2008

It was announced today that the "Full of Himself" photographer Benjamin Kanarek has decided to quit using digital cameras' and Pentax specifically to embrace the new line of "HOLGA" products. "HOLGA" have given Mr. Kanarek their new 6x6 prototype called the "U GOT BLLS 6x6" that can actually shoot at night with their new built in "flash unit", a technological marvel that others can only dream about. Holga will introduce their new camera this summer. "HOLGA" are using a new three element design hyper-polycarbonate all plastic lens that can resolve up to 347 horizontal lines per "INCH". Mr.Kanarek says.."this will change how we see photography today and in the future. People using glasses or contact lenses will no longer need to use these visual aids, as the final outcome will be similar to those who might be considered clinically blind..."

We expect to see this amazing device at most 7-11 Stores as well as "Radioshack" come September 1st, 2008. Announced price should be around $29.00 including a Fast Fixed Focus 38mm f11.0 Lens....

"HOLGA" are also planning to give a $19.00 rebate to the first "One Million" customers. This will be on a first come first serve basis.

We are waiting with baited breath!!

Ben, Is it true this unit has an interface so it can be used with Etch-a-Sketchs?

I'm sorry but your post and subsequent replies have me LOL

Looking forward to your reviews on the Holga system...as a photo buff, i'm open to "all" equipment and opinions as photography itself has no barriers imo
