    Toy camera/pin hold camera effect. Plus you can use the creative filter produced by Holga.

    There are other alternatives to create the effect....
    i.e.
    http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/a...s_pinhole.html

    And for the Holga filters, there nothing cannot be done in Photoshop.

    Having say that - if you buy the Holga stuff from ebay etc, it really isn't that expensive. And if you are into those Lomo style photos/low key photos, it's quite handy and very minimal work in post process... if any.

    I've got a Holga camera that I use and I love the low-key, lomo style photos. If you can afford to part with the small amount of money, then go for it. Nothing to lose but $20!! You never know, you may just end up creating some amazing wild images

    1 word of advise thu - avoid to use the Holga lens in a dirty, dusty area where wind's blowing hard! The lens has no glass elements, just a hole! Which means anything floating in the air have a good chance to get onto your sensor thru the tiny, tiny little hole.

    Thanks for your replies, I'm not one to use photoshop too much, so any in camera stuff I can do is a bonus in my opinion.
    As Ms Monny says it is only $20 !!!! If I get it , I will post some pics .
    Thanks again.
