So it seems that lomography is all the craze these days, with Urban Outfitters selling all sorts of plastic cameras and accessories. I think it’s awesome that lomogrpaphy is keeping film alive but they are robbing my wallet at the same time. So I started googling…

Digital Holga (nothing great)
Holga Hack (Some film Hacks),
then… BAM…. “HOLGA DSLR HACK” which returned this.

I followed almost all the instructions and overall I’m pleased with the results. I used a metal pipe instead of a film canister for the focal tube. It’s much more ridged, doesn’t leak any light, but is hard to focus. If I could find something that telescopes and leaks a minimal amount of light I would call it a success. Although, It doesn’t stand up to a real film camera it was fun to make and fun to play with.
