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?
