I haven’t actually ordered this, but it is a wee bit tempting.
This brings the low-fidelity soft and squishy imagery of Holga cameras to your Canon or Nikon DSLR, which is either mind-bogglingly stupid or really cool. Or maybe both. It does seem a little perverse to slap a deliberately low quality lens and some filters on the front of a modern high-quality camera, but I can see that it could be fun. And it avoids all that faffing around with actual film which is what puts me off taking my actual Holga out.
I suspect if I did get it, it would be another toy like the Lensbaby which gets the occasional outing when the mood strikes me, rather than a regular companion. But it’s cheap enough for that – with the cheapest shipping option to the UK, the cost is under £35.
And what do you know, I seem to have talked myself into it. About half way through the last paragraph, I decided I should probably have one, and I placed an order. I’ll no doubt mutter about it when it arrives and I’ve had a chance to play with it.
And if you’d like to buy this, or an of the other things on offer from Photojojo, here’s a magic link that will give you $5 off your order:
 Well, I hadn’t when I typed that sentence
 Sorry, Brian – no Pentax option on offer
