Zaijian/sayonara/goodbye Holga

holga cameraHolga cameras are no more, have ceased to be, are bereft of life, now rest in peace (with apologies to Monty Python). The factory in China which produced Holga cameras has ceased operations and will no longer be producing these inexpensive plastic cameras and accessories, reports the company’s U.S. agent.

What you see on the shelf (or online), is it. As these sell, nothing will take their place because, according to a factory spokesperson, “all Holga tooling has already been thrown away and there is nothing available for sale.” So, no resurrection like Polaroid instant film in the hands of The Impossible Project.
