The Holga camera was initially introduced to the Chinese public in 1982 as an inexpensive camera for everyday use. Shortly after its introduction, it became an underground artistic phenomenon. Using the Holga is an exercise in breaking free from dependence on technology, precision, and controllability. The slight softness of the images, vignetting and random light leaks produce dream-like, one-of-a-kind images. The Holga 120CFN (Model: 146120) is modeled after the original Holga 120N but includes a built-in flash with a spinning color wheel for your choice of red, yellow, blue or standard white flash. The camera uses 2 AA batteries for flash operation only, and 120 medium format film. This camera has 2 film masks for either 12- 6x6 cm images or 16- 6x4.5cm images. There are two shutter settings of 1/100 of a second and bulb. Also 2 aperture settings of f/11 for sunny and f/8 for cloudy. Other features are a hot shoe adapter, ΒΌ inch 20 thread tripod socket, Lens cap, and strap. The camera uses a fixed focus f8 60mm lens with a focus distance of 0.9m to infinity. The CFN came in a variety of colors including green, orange, yellow, white, blue, pink, purple, red, camo, and color combination of the parts of the cameras. The cameras are selling used between $10.00 to $80.00 depending on condition, model, and colors. Sealed in the box, the cameras can fetch close to $100.00.
