But there are things that are just calling to me...."Shoot me with the Holga." I've tried the lensbaby....it isn't a holga. I've tried software that is suppose to make a regular image look like a holga....no holga individualism about that. I've tried to Photoshop digital files to be a holga.....still not a holga.
I had been looking at finding a way to use a holga lens on my Canon 5D. I found that Holgamods has mounted a holga lens on a Canon lens cap but lens caps don't "lock-on" on like a lens does and that worried me. What if it fell off and I got dust in the camera.
But after seeing several images like the one above by Ted Orland, in a gallery on Holgamod's website, I ordered this lens/lens cap assembly last night.
This morning I read that it is official.....at least in Kansas City.....that you can't get professional film processed after January 1, 2007. As it becomes more difficult to find a place to process film how much longer will we even have film to process. How can this be happening so fast? If I can get the film, I could process it in my little daylight tank but I can't process medium format color negative film.
So, I'm really hoping that this holga lens assembly is going to work on the 5D. I need a digital Holga. Keep your fingers crossed.
