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.

    why not use two tubes one inside the other then you can slide one tube up and down for focusing. I used two cardboard tubes at first to try it out and it worked fine on my Nikons, Nikons this worked on is
    Nikon F55 Film camera, Nikon D1H Pro camera, Nikon D40, Nikon D70, and my Coolpix l810 with a bit more mods to make it fit but very pleased with the resolts
