Strength:

A ability to take interesting and quirky shots.

Weakness:

It's a plastic camera, go figure.
The back can fall off! (use tape).

This is a cult camera. You can find a myriad of pictures, shooting tips, hacks and mods created by people who LOVE Holgas.
Expect soft focus, vignetted pictures with edges that can almost have swirling appearance.
Despite its obvious cheap build and limited settings (one shutter speed and two apertures, f8 & f11) the Holga can create beautiful images with a dreamy, retro feel. Double exposures are very easy on the Holga, so many photographers use multiple exposures in their work. This is also an easy and fun way to try medium format.
Try one!
