- Will this work with my camera?
One of the most frequent questions we get asked! If your camera model is either a DSLR (Digital SLR), a regular SLR (Film SLR) OR a Mirrorless (Micro Four-Thirds) camera AND it is a model that is listed in the options (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, Olympus for SLR and Olympus PEN, Sony NEX, Panasonic Lumix, Samsung NX for Mirrorless) then it will work just fine. The only lens that attaches to your camera is the 'Base' Holga lens (eg, HL-C for Canon) which is included in this kit. All the other accessory lenses included attach to the front of this base lens giving you access to 'Wide Angle', 'Telephoto', 'Close-Up', 'Macro' and a specially designed 'Fisheye'.
- Can this Digital Holga Kit really produce images like a film Holga?
We can say that there is a large fundamental difference between Digital and Film formats and there are certain things you can do with film which are not possible with Digital in camera. For example a Holga film camera may well have 'light leaks' producing interesting (and annoying) effects on your images. This is something that cannot be reproduced in a Digital camera intentionally unless you are willing to make a few holes in your DSLR. This is not something we advise our customers to do. Having said that you can get a fairly close approximation of a Holga style image using these lenses. You do get the soft focus and characteristic vignetting (darkened corners) that Holga is so famous for. These come straight out of the camera. If you have any skills in photo-editing software (eg, Lightroom or Photoshop) you can further enhance these to get very close to real Holga film images (including the light leaks!)
- Why is this called the 'Kitchen Sink Kit'?
In some Western countries there is a idiom or phrase 'everything but the Kitchen Sink'. What people usually mean by this phrase is that something includes absolutely everything you can think of with the exception of only the most silliest of things (like a 'Kitchen Sink'). Alternatively you can think of this Kit as 'The Bestest Most Awesomest Most Complete Kit Ever!!!'. For further information about the Kitchen Sink idiom you can read HERE
- Just how many lenses are in the Kitchen Sink Kit?
In all there are an unbelievable 9 lenses included in this Kit! For this price you might just call us crazy for including so many accessories in this Kit!
- Can I shoot video with this Kit?
Absolutely! We've seen some really creative video work produced by some of our customers including short films and even music videos! The only limits are set by your own imagination!
- Can I use the accessory lenses with my Holga film camera?
All the accessory lenses in this kit can be used with a Holga 120 or 35mm film camera. This includes the Telephoto, Wide Angle, Close up, Macro and Fisheye lenses. Another great benefit of buying this kit!
