Fun little lensAlthough you won t be able to get the full Holga experience with light leaks and such, this is still a fun little lens. It gives you that beautiful dream like quality that the plastic lens on a real Holga provides. I ve also gotten some lovely lens flares in the sunlight that had a rainbowlike quality to them. I ve had no problems with the construction of my lens, it s pretty solid as far as a cheap lens like this can be.If you re fine with not achieving perfectly sharp images and are looking for that nostalgic dreamy feel instead, this is an awesome little lens 5Love love loveHolga lenses are becoming a serious trend in artistic/creative digital photography. I love this! It takes some playing with to figure out what setting work best with it, but once you figure it out, it produces soft, beautifully lit photos, with lovely, natural vignette around the edges. Things to be aware of are that it's a fixed lens, and it only works in manual setting, and it's fixed aperture. Because it's pinhole, you have to really play with the ISO and shutter speed to find what works. Shooting in higher light will work best. If you enjoy experimenting and want to find new ways to be creative, don't miss this lens! And with the price, you really can't go wrong! 5Just add sunlight!Exactly what I wanted and I LOVE it. If you get this with the expectation that it is a PLASTIC LENS from a famous TOY CAMERA...then this lovely little thing delivers. I'm using it with an adaptor on a fujifilm xm-1. The adaptor is heavier than the holga lens and feels rather silly. I would love to be able to put this thing directly on the camera, given how fun and tiny it is.Definitely needs a LOT of light, though, and you'll need to fiddle with the ISO.I attached two images--straight from the camera, no editing. 5Mystical image softness without a lot of digital image post processing. Works for me.A refreshing step away from quality glass lenses. Retro point and shoot is very liberating. Mechanical quality is good enough, optics are interesting and seem well made. My only issue is the 60mm focal length with my DX (1.5x) format camera sensor. The 60mm focal length translates to 90mm with the Nikon D80 sub-full frame sensor. Would like something wider....but, hey, still very cool lens. Almost tempted to acquire a full frame DSLR for use with the plastic lens(!!).......wife would love that..... 4Best Holga experience, but not perfect.I really miss using my old Holga camera now that film is crazy expensive/inconvenient to shoot. This is the best replication of the Holga experience - the feel is the same. Still a 60mm f/13 lens, still manual focus with pictures of people and mountains, still clear in the center and darker/blurry on the outside. Won't meter right on a Nikon DSLR, so it still helps if you know how to match your ISO/so forth to light conditions. Price is cheap, so I'd recommend it if you miss your Holga at all.That said, there are some definite differences. The biggest is that the same lens acts differently on an APS-C sized sensor rather than medium format film. It was the perfect angle before, a sort of wide normal lens, but on a smaller sensor the lens is much narrower and less convenient, more like a portrait lens. Also, while the far corners of the picture are dark and blurry and it all looks Holga-ish, if you shoot in square format pretty much everything is fairly clear and doesn't really look Holga-ish. I think the ideal for this camera, or at least the best way to replicate the original Holga, would be to shoot a full-frame camera, square format. I don't have a full-frame camera so that's just a guess. Digital sensors don't act the same way as film with light drop-off, so pictures have a distinct effect but it's just not quite the same.I used this lens on a Nikon 3300. It works fine, but you have to have it in Manual mode, and it won't really meter. 5Not bad for the price, worth $20.I really want to question the authenticity of this being a Holga lens. I used one on my Nikon D200 years ago, i just got another one and it feels, and shoots like a completely different lens. Perhaps my old one was a fake, but this lens feels cheaper, it fits loose on the camera, and the images aren't quite as "Holga" as my old lens. Maybe the QC isn't as good anymore, or the materials are cheaper, i don't know.But with that being said, this is still a fun lens to use. It does require a good bit of light being an f/8, so don't expect it to be a good user lens if you're not out in the afternoon sun with it.For the price, i really find it hard to take any of my own complaints seriously, i know it's a $20 lens. I am honestly very happy with my purchase despite being leery of it being a genuine Holga lens.I don't like to leave any form of negative review, so after more time is spent shooting with this lens i will update my review. 3It s..... okay?I mean.... it s like super cheap. What do you expect?The lense case is made of a cheap plastic, and on my Nikon, it rattled around when connected to the body. It s not a good fit by any means.But it s cheap. And it s a lens. And you can see through it on the camera. So I guess it s okay?I wouldn t recommend, but I also wouldn t not recommend. It s cheap enough that you get what you pay for, and also don t have much to lose. 3Lo-fi fun!If you miss the serendipitous fun of Holga toy film cameras, this is a convenient way to recapture some of it. You ll get some interesting vignetting and lo-fi effects, and you have to experiment a bit, but it s worth it. Can t beat the price. One star off because the first one I received had a speck of something inside and I had to exchange it. 4Toy camera funThis was bought by me on a whim, I love the toy camera aesthetic. I like them on my Lumix FZ80 (Toy Camera, Toy Pop), and on my Nikon D3300 (Toy Camera Effect). But, it wasn't quite enough to have these modes that are applied by the on-board system, respectively. So as my Lumix is not an interchangeable lens camera, I looked to the options for my D3300.Lo, and behold. Holga's HL-N lens was revealed.I found this lens initially to be way too dark. I had done my research beforehand, yet I didn't expect it to be that dark. So I performed the the aperture ring hack. Which is basically me opening the lens, and removing a small "washer-like" black plastic disc that was glued in place behind the lens. After removal, the aperture was no longer F8, but F5.6, or as close as it can be to that.I chose to keep the vignette disc which is what goes toward the camera, don't forget to remove both caps! With good lighting you can get soft and dreamy images. The focus ring gets easier to get used to when you realize the focus will never be like other lenses. It has a purposefully soft focus, which you can get right after some practice. I have provided a sample image at ISO 800 (it was cloudy out) at 1/50 of a second.All in all, for $12, a great purchase and no regerts. It also makes a good conversation starter among other photographers. It's a nice departure from perfect and or technically correct exposures. It's all touch and go. And that's what I love, you're learning to do something new. 5As advertised, great priceGreat value for the money. It's exactly as advertised. The lens fit perfectly onto my Nikon DSLR body. It took about 15-20 minutes of trial and error to get the settings dialed in. With no aperature adjustments, it took me a bit to get the settings dialed in. The results are exactly what I was hoping for. It's got a great lo-fi look with a strong vignette. 4
