Holga-Cam of the Apocalypse

Made without any cutting, the "Holga-Cam of the Apocalypse" is the product of my love for low-tech experimentation and obsession with cutting edge technology. There are more descriptions and photos of the camera itself in this set, and photos from the camera in the Holgapocalyptiphotos set.


The camera is built from:

1 - Holga 120N camera body (retail: $25)

1 - Phase One P25 Digital Back (retail: $24,000)

1 - Horseman lens board (thus the current name)

1 - Foot of Black Gaff Tape


(Also, a Phase One flex adapter plate, a PC Hot Shoe and Phase One Wake-Up Cable)


The combination you see here is 22 Megapixels, but the P-25 could easily be replaced with a Leaf Aptus 75 or P-45 or what-not to get around a 40MP image.


No cutting has been done to the Holga body; it has been disassembled into its basic parts and mounted on to the lens board.


It's actually very stable when held like a normal camera (although I am still working on a tripod mount which does not stress the lens > board connection and jeopardize the P-25).
