Lomography Wednesday: Holga Tim Review

holgatimHolga Tim Review

HolgaTim is the newest member to the Holga toy camera team, and he is really unique. Tim comes is various colors, like my lilac purple and has double lens that appear on the camera as eyes with matching colored flash with color filters (if you want you as you buy seperately you can mix up flash color). The multiple lens allow for either 3D images, half frames and even multiple exposure. There is so much you can do with Tim, you will find lots of interesting ideas come to you while taking photos. I love this camera. Its not as fussy as most toy cameras and you can easy get a full roll of film developed, and even better if you take in half-frames a 24 shot roll you will get 48 unique  shots. Plus walking around with a smiling camera really makes people laugh. The flash is very good on the Holga Tim and most of shots I toke were with it. Day shots are possible but appear to be a bit dark but not as bad as other multiple lens cameras I have in my collection. The flash being detachable also makes this camera great for carrying around with you, it doesn’t take up much space at all and the filters do a really great job at making the photos extra fun, I love yellow the best. But what better way to review the camera then to show you what you can do with it.

*you have to be careful when taking half-frames because if you forget to take a shot then 1 side will not have a photo. Or if your saving the shot for later and leave the lens eyes open you’ll easy accidentally take a photos or do a double exposure because you forgot what eye was open. I think once you get use to the camera it easy not to make any mistakes and I created a rhythm to how I wanted to do my half shots, and out of 3 rolls I only had it happen about 1 to 2 times a roll.
