Remember when life wasn’t so complicated, when there wasn’t a million things to remember, and when photography wasn’t a serious hobby but just . . . for fun? Holga remembers.
There is freedom in simplicity. You can pour over MTF graphs online and ridiculous DxO Mark scores, or you can do-it-yourself and experiment with something deliciously old school.
The Holga lens is available for a variety of focal lengths and mounts. We used a 25mm f/8 for our Sony A7, but other versions are available as follows:
- Holga 25mm f/8 Lens for Sony E-mount
- Holga Pinhole Lens for Sony E-mount
- Holga 60mm f/8, Manual Focus Lens for Canon EOS
- Holga Pinhole Lens for Canon EOS
- Holga 60mm f/8 Lens for Nikon DSLR
- Holga Pinhole Lens for Nikon DSLR
- Holga 25mm f/8 Lens for Olympus and Panasonic

Digital is clean, precise, and sterile. Film has a texture to it, or as Patrick Bateman might say, “the tasteful thickness of it.” But the problem with 35mm film is the time, expense, and effort of dealing with a physical media, not to mention, the way we consume photography has long changed from printed photo to digital websites.
