- Will this work with my Sony camera?
This lens is compatible with all Sony DSLR and SLR cameras (both film and digital). The lens works well with both full frame sensors as well as crop frame sensors.
- Can I use the automatic functions of my camera with this lens?
As this is a 'manual' lens then the best way to use the lens is to put your camera into 'Manual' mode and then adjust a combination of shutter speed and ISO to obtain a correct exposure for any given lighting condition. This is easier than it sounds for digital cameras as you can always take a few trial shots and immediately see whether any adjustments are required.
- Do I need any post-processing knowledge to use this lens?
Not at all. The images straight out of the camera will have that Holga look with the soft dreamy focus and the corner vignetting. Of course if you know your way around lightroom, photoshop or similar then you could further enhance this look even further.
- Is this a fixed focal length lens? or a zoom?
The focal length is fixed to 60mm but this needs to be adjusted for the sensor size of the camera that you are using to get the true value. For more varied options you may like to check out the Digital Holga Ultimate Kit
(the HL-S lens plus a Wide Angle, Telephoto, Close up, and Macro lenses) or the Digital Holga Kitchen Sink Kit
(the HL-S plus a Wide, Telephoto, Close Up, Macro and Fisheye lens)
