Holga lens for Canon DSLR’s

I was recently cruising the web and came across legit Holga lens’ (from Holga) that fit onto Canon/Nikon DSLR cameras. Once I saw the price ($25), I pounced on it.

I casually shot the above photos over the last day and a half trying out the lens.

In a nutshell, it’s a plastic piece of junk that can be fun and it definitely gives you a “Holga-like” look. Soft focus, vignette and vintage-y. If you are fan of this and aren’t that concerned about using actual film, than I think you will be stoked. Overall, it will be cool to have this lens in the arsenal, but I will only really use it if I will have the time needed to mess with it.

A few things you should know:
You will be in manual mode using this lens, which means you will have to fiddle with shutter speed to get a good exposure, or one that you are happy with. I easily took about 3-4 photos of the pics above trying to dial it in. Also, from my experience so far, the in-camera exposure meter is not the answer to your problems.

The lens is fixed at F.8, so it’s not that good in low light unless you are using a tripod. All the photos above were all shot mid to late day with enough light. I would go as far as saying that you need plenty of light to use this lens.

That’s all that I can really think of. I know it’s kind of ironic to put such a cheap lens on an expensive camera body to produce “downgraded” images, but it does give you a certain look. It’s not bad for what it is. If you have a Canon/Nikon DSLR, enjoy the look of Holga pictures, wish to save some money on film and have 25 bucks, than check out this lens.

Aaron & friends

These local kids happened to come by Odyssey yesterday while Aaron Ross was there. His “orange bike” was in the lobby when they walked in, and they knew exactly whose bike it was. They started whispering stuff real low in excitement, even though we could hear them in the back of the office. It was funny. Needless to say, they were stoked. Aaron came out to greet them and let them ride his bike and they were even more stoked. Stuff like this is good to see.
