I was searching around on the Urban Outfitters website when I saw their Red Holga camera for pre-order. I've always wanted a camera that creates cool light effects, but never knew how it all worked. If you go to the Lomographic Society's Holga website you can find more info about the camera, but to sum things up, the camera is made of mostly plastic (including the lense!), and it's known for its unpredictable effects, blurred edges, vignetting, and funky light leaks. They go for between $25 and $50, depending on which model you get. I bought mine from Adorama, they seem to have good prices.
