HOLGA LENS ATTACHMENTS

All Holga lens attachments fit over the barrel of the existing Holga lens.
The HOLGA WIDE ANGLE LENS (HW-05) broadens the horizon with an ultra wide view. It yields approximately a .5x wider field of view than the standard Holga lens. There is a slight increase in vignette and cool image distortion.
The HOLGA TELEPHOTO LENS (HT-25) brings your subject closer. It yields approximately a 2.5x magnification over Holga’s standard lens.
There are a few versions of the Holga Fisheye lens. Each lens gives a 60-degree view to stretch and squeeze the image into a circular frame.
For Holga 120, there is the black or silver metal FISHEYE LENS FOR HOLGA. This glass fisheye lens attaches to the front of Holga 120 cameras with a custom adapter ring. The glass lens provides unusually sharp images. It is not recommended to use this lens with the built-in flash of the Holga 120FN or 120 CFN as the lens may vignette the flash. The weight and look of this lens, moves the Holga from toy to a camera of substance.
Holga plastic fisheye lenses have two models, one for the Holga 135, HOLGA PLASTIC 35MM FISHEYE LENS (FEL-135) and one for the Holga 120, HOLGA PLASTIC 120 FISHEYE LENS (FEL-120). These lenses provide the same 60-degree view but with a plastic lens for a greater spread of soft vignetting that is expected from the Holga.

The HOLGA MACRO LENS ADAPTER SET (MLS-1) adds a new dimension to your Holga camera...Macro! This set of two macro lens adapters is designed to work on both Holga 35mm and 120mm series cameras for extra close-up work. The ML-30 lens has a focal length of 30mm (unbelievably close!) and the ML-60 lens has a focal length of 60mm. Simply snap these lenses over the standard Holga lens, set the focus to infinity, carefully measure the distance, then shoot. It's that easy! And the results are so Big!
The HOLGA CLOSE-UP LENS ADAPTER SET (CLS-1) adds the next dimension to your Holga camera...Close-Up! This set of three snap-on close-up lens adapters is designed to work on both Holga 35mm and 120mm series cameras for extra close-up work. This set includes the CL-120 lens (focal length of 120mm), CL-250 lens (focal length of 250mm), and CL-500 lens (focal length of 500mm). They come in a tiny plastic case to keep them safe in your camera bag. As with the Macro lenses, snap the lens over the standard Holga lens, set the focus to infinity, carefully measure your distance, then shoot.

TIP: The sweet spots on the macro and close-up lenses are very specific. Special attention must be made when measuring for focus. To make things easier, have a dedicated string or camera strap with clearly marked measurements corresponding to the lenses. Stretch the strap from subject to lens for perfect focus every time. It sure beats carrying around a tape measure!
The HOLGA DSLR LENS and HOLGA DSLR PINHOLE LENS marry the fun and look of Holga with the convenience of digital. Versions to fit Canon and Nikon bodies are available and compatible with both manufacturer's film and digital SLR cameras. The DSLR lens is a Plastic Optical Lens, f/8, 60mm and has the standard Holga symbol adjustable focusing. Although the lens does not allow the traditional vignetting or light leaks Holga is known for, it does enable the use of all of Holga lens and filter accessories, allowing instant viewing of your creations. The DSLR pinhole lens adds the fun of pinhole photography to your DSLR camera.
