The Holga Wide Pinhole is a spin-off from the classic Holga camera with an unique outlook on life.
Not only is it lensless, using a highly accurate pinhole for replicating an image on your film, but it is also wide-angle and can therefore capture 120° views of the scene in front of you. Panoramic Pinhole pleasure!
The Wide Pinhole 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 ISO400 so that you can learn to shoot pinhole with some exposure flexibility!

The Holga Wide Pinhole Camera comes with a strap, a lens cap, and two internal film masks so that you can choose to shoot either eight 6x9cm images or six 6x12cm images.
The camera has an inbuilt spirit level to ensure a level horizon, and a cable release built into the shutter button to keep your photos wobble-free!
If you've never shot pinhole before then this will be a treat! An original means of capturing images - from before the invention of reliable lenses - and still a wonderful way to experience panoramic analogue photography. A brilliant addition to your shooting portfolio.

Simple, check camera gave me results far better than I expected. This simple camera gave me just 8 photos, every one now printed an in my album. A really nice day out taking proper old school photos
Despite having to tape up the back and back holding clips ( which are worse than useless) the camera was fum to use and made me think more about subjects and composition the results were amazing. Great experiance and I am hooked!
So far I have put a couple of rolls of film through the camera , all have been returned blank, Disappointing. I am not sure if the camera is leaking light , though I tested it in a darkened room with a strong torch, or it is my failure to calculate reciprocity failure correctly. We shall see , I put black tape all around and waiting for more film to be returned from the lab. will let you know I still have high hopes.
After a short lived love affair with a Yashica-24 that is waiting for the cash for a trip to the repair shop due to a stuck shutter I had a few rolls of 120 film slowly drifting past their expiry dates. Not wanting them to go to waste but not having a lot of money the Holga seemed like an affordable way of using the film. I've only been able to put one roll Ilford HP5 through it and to test for leaks and get my head around exposure times I bracketed the same scene incrementing exposure by 12 seconds from 12 to 60. Here are 12 and 60 seconds... and yes, the object of interest is far, far to far away from the camera!
