    Officially reviewed on my BestLightPHOTO Blog.

    Sample images provided, camera lowdown and my thoughts.

    Quick summary - it is a fun little camera that gives you the Holga feel without the need for film. Not a camera for everyone, but there are a few that will appreciate it.

    Interesting...

    Did you adjust colors, or are they SOOC?

    Most are SOOC, some I had processed in Lightroom.

    Some additional images for your viewing pleasure:

    I do some post processing on the images, so know that these may not represent the SOOC from the Holga Digital.

    I Kickstarted it for some lomo fun in addition to something for the kids to use. Just the rainbow body, no extra lenses. While I don't care about specific shot details in EXIF very much, not even having a date has been a bit annoying. Wish the on/off/modes were a bit more simply labeled for kids. My "cloudy" and "daytime" aperture switch doesn't appear to do anything, which others have confirmed with their copies. Most of all, the need to freeze well after a shot to prevent motion has kinda buzzkilled it for kid use. Still, it's kinda fun. I keep mine in B&W mode most of the time.
