This instructable will show you how to make a simple holga lens for your digital camera so you can share in the toy camera awesomeness.
UPDATE: After doing some research about to better achieve that "athentic" effect, i found this flickr photo set: Digital Holga With Light Leaks I would like to implement these changes in the future.
UPDATE 2: I have added an extra step to get better pictures
Step 1: Supplies
- A DSLR camera (I'm assuming if you want to do this, you already have one)
- Holga Camera ($30 on amazon)
- Body cap for your DSLR ($1 on ebay)
- Drill w/ 5/16" drill bit
- Screw Driver
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 2: Open Up The Holga
First step is to open up the holga and locate the screws (See Photo For Screw Locations). Once you find the screws, unscrew them and the first part of the lens will fall off.
There will be two yellow wires, just clip or pull those out to get the lens part off
Step 3: Removing The Shutter
Next you want to remove the shutter assembly, again there will be 2 screws. unscrew them and the shutter will fall off.
Step 4: Removing The Lens
Step 5: Drilling The Body Cap
Next you want to drill the body cap. Try to center it to the best of your ability.
