Description

The Holga is a cult classic film camera! Deceptively simple to start shooting, but with a wealth of creative options.

The Holga is a 120 film camera, so shoots medium format film. You can use any of the 120 films that we list in store, but I'd recommend you begin with a film of ISO 200 or 400 so that you can shoot it in a variety of weather and lighting situations! The camera has a hot shoe adapter for attaching a simple flash - unleash your nighttime creativity and take photos in the dark!

The Holga 120N Camera comes with a strap, a lens cap, and an internal film mask so that you can choose to shoot twelve 6x6cm images or sixteen 4.5x6cm images.

You can expect heavily vignetted and grainy images from the plastic lens - wonderfully evocative and atmospheric. A fantastic camera for your portfolio.

Available in traditional black, or a dazzling red/white combo.

The Analogue WonderLab

When you’ve shot your roll of film and are looking to get it developed and scanned, then look no further than the Analogue WonderLab!

We can process your film for you, scan it at the resolution you need, and email back the files quickly and securely.

We offer FREE tracked shipping to our lab so that you can send us your negatives with total peace of mind. And our lab team are all passionate film shooters themselves, so you know that your film will get the best possible treatment!

Head to the WonderLab page here to read more details, or add the bundled developing above when you purchase your film.

Please note that our long-term aim is to offer developing for every film that we sell, but this is a work-in-progress. For full details and FAQs please head here

How Does the Bundled Developing Work?

To make your analogue adventures even easier (and cheaper!) we’ve implemented the option to pre-pay for your processing when you buy your film. This means that you choose your developing and scanning options on this page, via the little tick-box above, and add everything to basket for an immediate 10% saving on all processing costs.

Your film will be dispatched in line with our usual shipping times (full details here) and you will also get an email with instructions on sending the film back to the WonderLab (with tracked shipping - on us!)

When you have shot the film - whether that takes you a day, month or year - you generate the free tracked postage label by following the simple instructions from the email, and pop it in the post with a note of your original order number. We’ll do the rest!

So buy the bundle and relax into the shooting process, knowing that you’ll get to see the final results from your photography, without having to reach for your wallet again.

Happy Shooting!

We send all parcels via TRACKED service - free in the UK for orders of film over £50.

This means that when you buy your film from us you will be emailed a tracking link at dispatch, and will be able to follow your parcel’s journey all the way to safe arrival.

Please note that it is not a signed service so you won’t need to be at home to receive your film, and our letterbox-friendly boxes fit through the vast majority of European letterboxes!

You will have different shipping options and costs at checkout, depending on how quickly you need your film. Please refer to the Delivery Details page for full information

Great fun

The Holga 120N is an exemplar of how limitations can change your approach to photography. Having just an approximate shutter speed or bulb, a fixed plastic meniscus lens, a very vague focusing system, and approximate framing natually limits the sort of thing you can capture, but it's amazing how this makes you interpret scenes differently. It really is a blast to use, and it can help to recapture the fun informality that many of us start our photographic experiences with, before getting bogged down in MTF charts and optimum apertures. The images naturally don't have corner to corner sharpness, but being on 120 with a smaller magnification ratio than 35mm for any given print, the centre can be surprisingly sharp. Overall, it's a lot of fun for not very much money, and well worth a go if you haven't tried it!

My favorite camera of all time

I keep one or two Holgas in my bag at all time. Weird, dreamy, strange images come out of this thing. Is it unpredictable? No, not really. Can you manage the images that you take? Yes. Will you need gaffer tape? Only for the red window. But it's good to tape down the hinges on the side. It's a thing of magic. I love it.
