Re: I want to try film!!!

Yes, Holgas are a favorite fashion accessory of dirty hipsters, but that fact alone doesn't mean you should avoid them.

Learning to shoot with one shutter speed, one focal length, and one aperture is photography reduced to its bare essence. (I suppose a pinhole camera is even more primitive, and you should certainly try those too if you're so inclined). The only thing you get to control is film type and film speed. Putting aside all the hipster nonsense, Holgas have something to teach any photographer.

Plus you can brag that you're using a "sensor" (120 film) that is FOUR TIMES larger than the one in a Nikon D800.
