I asked members whether or not we should accept digital images made with the Holga lens and the response was very clear.

So, we will not accept digital images for the gallery. This policy is not meant to exclude anyone, but to preserve what we feel to be an important part of the Holga experience, which is the analog response of film.

I am happy to say that there are many places on DA to share digital photography, so no one need feel left out. Also, thank you to all members who responded.

digital looks way too's just picture with vignette... you are missing multi-exposure... so what is the point? same as decaf coffe...why bother? keep the real HOLGA alive!!! :)

The place will now be here then:

I created this group for photography using Holga lenses mounted on DSLRs. While I started with film, I never had the pleasure of shooting with Holgas. I was given a Holga lens designed for a DSLR mount this year as a present and have been amazed at the remarkable look it produces. Everyone is welcome to come and view and constructive comments are always welcomed. Thanks!

Thank you very much. I certainly appreciate the compliment - holga work has such fascinating potential, and I certainly appreciate how it looks on film. Thank YOU for moderating your terrific group and I hope you and your members come by and share comments and critiques.

No harsh feelings, man: it would be nice if instead you create a group about that new branch of photography, so we pass by and send you feedback, don't you think? :)

Good to hear!

I'm not against digital Holga, but it certainly has it's place and it's not here.
