Holga 120 S, discontinuada.

1997, en el ICP, International Center of Photography Museum, http://www.icp.org de Manhattan, New York, compré esta Holga 120 S, muy barata y pensando en tenerla de adorno en una repisa. Plástica, con una velocidad 1/100 avos, solo dos diafragmas, f8 y f11… y anunciada como Toy Camera, cámara de juguete. Sin rosca para trípode, sin poder usar N B, normal y bulbo, no le di importancia pues no imaginaba usarla. Sí sabía que era para film 120.

Pasaron casi tres años, hasta que una gran amiga, Alexa Boneto, alexarabbit.com, me trajo un rollo 120 de regalo, e impulsado a usarla.

Fallaron varias fotos en tres rollos, varias entradas de luz, tape con cinta negra algunos agujeritos y ya en el cuarto, empecé a ver buenas imágenes, me entusiasmé y armé el grupo en Facebook, photoheerHolga y photoheerholga.tumblr.com hasta llegar a ése que ya tiene casi 10 años de vida dedicada a Holga.

No recuerdo bien en qué año, compré las Holga 120 N, también con zapata caliente de flash y las Holga GCFN con el flash de 4 colores. Y no paré más de usarla, de entusiasmarme cada día más, de reconocer sus limitaciones y lo maravilloso que es ver lo que nos brinda.

1997, at the ICP, International Center of Photography Museum, http://www.icp.org in Manhattan, New York, I bought this Holga 120 S, very cheap and thinking of having it as an ornament on a shelf. Plastic, with a speed 1/100 th, only two apertures, f8 and f11 … and advertised as Toy Camera.. Without a tripod thread, without being able to use N B, normal and bulb, I did not give it importance because I did not imagine using it. I did know it was for film 120. Almost three years passed, until a great friend, Alexa Boneto, alexarabbit.com, brought me a roll 120 as a gift, and was prompted to use it. Several photos in three rolls failed, several light inputs, I covered some little holes with black tape and in the room, I started to see good images, I got excited and I put the group on Facebook, photoheerHolga and photoheerholga.tumblr.com until I got to this one. that already has almost 10 years of life dedicated to Holga. I don’t quite remember in what year, I bought the Holga 120 N, also with the flash hot shoe and the Holga GCFN with the 4-color flash. And I did not stop using it, to get more excited every day, to recognize its limitations and how wonderful it is to see what it offers us.
