An iconic toy camera returns with the 135BC 35mm Bent Corners Film Camera from Holga, for those who appreciate light leaks, enjoy slight soft focus, and welcome retro vignetting to create truly unique images. One of the most iconic toy cameras available due to its simple and inexpensive design, the very features that personify the Holga would be considered defects in any other camera. The Holga 135BC 35mm film camera differs from the original 120 film versions in that it features an internal mask which cuts the image corners, creating a soft vignetting effect – hence the name BC, or “Black Corner”, version. The 135BC offers a choice between f/8 or f/11, or “cloudy” and “sunny”, aperture settings, along with 1/100 sec. or bulb shutter speed settings. The bulb setting allows the shutter to stay open for as long as necessary for long exposures. This makes it possible to do night photography, getting images without a flash in low light situations, or even painting with light. The simple zone focusing system provides focusing from as close as 3′ away to infinity. A tripod mount is incorporated into the base of the camera for stable long exposure shooting and a top hot shoe accepts optional electronic flashes.A camera designed to bring the fun and nostalgia back to photography, the Holga 135BC is the return of a classic toy camera capable of making some remarkable, yet inherently lo-fi photographs.
