At the beach with my Holga PAN film camera

I just want to share some photos I took at the beach with my Holga panoramic camera. It takes 120 film and because I have to advance the film to odd numbers  I only get 6 pictures on a roll. I like this camera for its simplicity, the wide-angle of view and because I can make double exposures. There is a bit of fall-off at the edges, but I don’t mind. It’s a bit of a clunker, but when I am at the beach I like using plastic cameras because I know the salt and sea won’t really ruin them. Plus, if something did happen the Holga cameras are not expensive so I can easily replace them.

I own several Holga cameras: the original 120 that takes square photos, the Holga 3-D, the Holga pinhole and the Holga PAN. All are very fun cameras.

    Curious if you are still using this camera. I’m looking hard so please let me know if you would be interested in selling.

      I am still using the camera, sorry. You might contact Blue Camera and Machine in Portland, Oregon. That’s where I bought mine. And did you try the Lomography web site?
      Thanks for looking at my blog
