Holgaroid anyone with experience ?

I am wondering if there are any toy camera lovers out there who have used, played with the Holgaroid and can tell me whether to stay away from it or have fun with it. Let me know ASAP! Thanks

Camille — I haven’t used the Holgaroid but managed to go through two bodies in Baghdad last year. Make sure they insides are sealed with black tape. Less light leaks that way.

Do you have any images made with the camera that you can show me online?

Camille,

Not the hybrid Holgaroid, but have you seen this WAPO article about David Burnett’s use of the Holga?

Those are almost as pretty as Teru’s images! thanks for the link.
I am familiar with Holga I just need more info about the Holga results with a polaroid back.

I have a Holga… it is fun for the kitchiness of it, and it does make some nice images… however, light leeks are irratic. The camera is cheap but processing and printing 1 roll of 120 film costs as much as the damned camera!

I bought the Holgaroid. It’s cheap enough, you might as well give it a whirl. The film can be hard to get outside of New York or the other cities with good photo shops, so just buy a lot. I wish it vignetted more, but that can likely be solved by taking off the filter that goes over the lens. You can also use it as aregular Holga if you take the polaroid back off and use its regular film back. I vote yes.
