i tryed ebay.co.uk but they all seem to be from japan and are a complete package of all the extras and the cameras they are selling have glass lenses and i'd prefer a plastic lense although i'll keep checking.

i'll try finding a store near me thanks for the suggestions

^ Psst! After pressing a few people for info, a scared little bird whispered in my ear that they have them at the Photographers' Gallery in London.

http://www.photonet.org.uk/index.php?latest

I'd call them first and see if they ship.

- you have nothing to lose by taking that picture...the camera already has light leaks so just go for it. in a frame or 2 it shouldn't really matter.

have fun and let us see when it's processed!

Pah! I dropped in entire roll of film once and it unraveled a bit, I loaded it anyway. This was the first shot of the roll, I was overlapping all the shots on purpose just to kill the roll I thought was bad. All the area to the left got exposed to light. And no, it's not me, it's a friend who everyone says looks like me.



^ Click me! I grow!

I'm currently bidding on this Holga on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=270104679533

How much is too much to spend, and is this a good model (Holga 120FN With Flash)?

I wouldn't spend more than $25 on a Holga myself, and I don't like the flash models, but that's just me. Just don't buy one at Urban Outfitters, they're selling some package to the hipsters for $80. LOL

Here's a Holga used to trip wireless strobes. It worked well for a horrid little camera:

After doing some research, I ended up ordering a Holga 120N today from a seller on ebay. It was like $27, including shipping. I'm sooo excited to get it! Does anyone else on a 120N, and what do you think of it?
