    Re: Holga!?! What's that?

    I know this sounds dumb... but

    May I know what's the difference between Lomo and Holga? They're technically the same?

    The Lomo only shoots 35mm film.
    And it has a few more controls, more shutter speeds and f/stops, I believe.
    Plus, the Lomo costs way more than a Holga.
    I think they go for about $150, for that you could buy five to 10 Holgas!

    I would recommend you look at www.holgamods.com for a Polaroid back.
    They aren't being made anymore, from what I understand and Randy is doing what he does to them so they work with a Holga.
    Good Luck!

    Black and white developing is not costly and is a straght forward process. But color you have to be more precise with the timing and temperature, and there are many more solutions and steps ( and chemicals). Unless you plain on scanning the color negatives, no digital color printing is an artform! I never could afford a color head for my enlarger. I my self find the labs do a good job of developing the film, the problem is their printing!
