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 phenomena. 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 pinhole models are available in 120 and 35mm formats. Holga pinholes have essentially the same Holga bodies with the lens replaced by a pinhole. This lensless body produces infinite depth of field, meaning everything in the scene will be reasonably sharp and detailed. The Holga 135PC is a lensless, pinhole version of the Holga 135 camera.
