“And the spending continuous! Need for upgrades. More disk space…” This is an excerpt of the text message from Bobby after I texted him that my new camera arrived. Well, he must have been right this time because I’m craving for a wide angle lens, an external flash, a infrared remote, a tripod, among other cool extra accessories I’m planning to save up for.

But speaking of cameras…..I’m really falling in love with the Holga these days. I’ve seen shots taken by a Holga in the Web and I like its vignette look.

From Wikipedia:

“The Holga is an inexpensive, medium format 120 film toy camera, made in China, appreciated for its low-fidelity aesthetic.

The Holga’s cheap construction and simple meniscus lens often yields pictures that display vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other distortions. The camera’s quality problems have become a virtue among some photographers, with Holga photos winning awards and competitions in art and news photography.” (more info here)

So where oh where can I find a Holga in Davao City? That’s the big question. If you have the answers, comment away. 🙂
