  Digital meets analogue in the best possible way or just the latest hipstainstamagraphic thingamijig?  
 I like to think it’s the former. With it’s minimalist design and the inability to see the photographs as they’re shot the Holga D distills the best parts of it’s analogue counterpart into a sleek and very accesible design.  
 In words of it’s creator Saikat Biswas 
  “The biggest ‘feature’ of the Holga D is lack of features! It has absolute bare minimum feature set that you need for unobtrusive photography.”  
  Right now the camera is just a dream on paper but Biswas hopes to get it funded and out into the world. I for one hope he does too.   
 You can read a much more in depth breakdown of the  Holga D on his website . I highly recommend it.  
 What are your thoughts? If the Holga D were to go into production would you buy one? 
 Do you see a reason one should purchase a Holga vs. downloading an app that simulates an analogue experience app like  Hipstamatic disposable  for example?
