The competition is now closed! Thanks for all the comments, the winner will be selected and announced soon.

Hi everyone, it’s time for another great Orms Connect giveaway. This month, we’ve got a fantastic Holga 35mm film camera to give to one lucky winner!

Holga 35mm

The Holga 35mm is a slightly miniaturized version of the original medium format Holga.

Like its older sibling, it has an all plastic lens, two shutter settings, and two aperture settings. Its advance and shutter are uncoupled meaning that you can shoot unlimited multiple exposures on the same frame. Its images are dripping with color, contrast, a slight softness, and a whole lotta soul. For that classic Holga look, with the ease of 35mm film development, this guy cant be beat.

See photographs taken by the Holga 135.


  • Plastic 48mm f/8 Lens – Great colours and contrast for that Lomography look.
  • Uncoupled Advance and Shutter – Perfect for multiple-exposures.
  • Variable Shutter Speeds and Aperture
  • Zone Focus – Easy and quick manual focusing
  • Standard Tripod & Shutter Release Threads
  • Standard Hotshoe
  • Normal 35mm processing – Simply drop the film off at Orms when you’re done.
