Holga have now decided to cast a little of the photography magic on the HTC One world with this awesome special effect lens kit. Simple to install this kit slips onto an HTC One just like a case. But a case with a difference! Once fitted you now have access to 9 different and crazy special effects and filters without any software or app installed. Cunningly designed like an old school telephone just dial in your preferred special effect and behold the Holga craziness that follows! This Holga Kit is available in a choice of Red, Blue, White, Black or Yellow. The full list of special effects/filters are listed on the Specs page. New and improved on this case is the ability to 'detach' the filter from the case so that you can use it just like a regular case when not creating your photographic masterpieces!

- Will this work with my HTC One?
As long as you have an HTC One then you are good to go!
- Do I still have access to all my HTC One buttons?
Yep, all buttons can be accessed through the filter kits access holes. Note that the filter kit does obscure the flash on the phone.
- Is this Filter Kit a case too?
It is indeed! It will act as a case as well as the most fun filter kit you have ever seen on an HTC One
- I've seen a lot of fake kits on the internets. How do I know yours is authentic?
Yes, we've seen these too :-( Please do not be fooled into purchasing a counterfeit Holga case. Unfortunately we have been the victims of our own success. After a great heap of publicity and demand over the last few months the copycats seized on this product as a quick way to make a buck. If you see this kit on offer anywhere else online for a price that seems too good to be true then it will most probably be a counterfeit. We need to remind you that we strongly advise you to stay away from these lower quality copies.
- Can I shoot video with this Kit?
Of course! You can really creative now with our HTC One videos by adding some Lo-Fi loving!
