Nope, I have a Rollei and a Hassey 503c. I've shot with a Pentax 6x9, but never used a Holga. Although for the 30 spot they cost, it's tempting isn't it?

It is quite tempting, I have been thinking of picking one up for myself, actually.

I sure hope it comes out decent... I just can't make the same mistake I made on the roll of Delta 100 I recently shot; the ASA setting on my EM was set wrong, and most of the frames came out underexposed by about a stop and a half. Yikes!

Really? For the colours in their costumes, I presume!

I prefer Polaroid.
