Amen to a tool that helps the user focus on the craft; not the end result!

The Holga.D is one of the best examples of thoughtful and beautiful ID work I have seen in a long time.  I love the concept of a digital camera that forces user to wait to products of their labor, like the old analog film cameras.  I think this will allow the user to enjoy, and focus on, more the photo-taking experience (trying to capture the images they are seeing in the real world) rather than worrying too much–in that instant–how the images look.   See picture below of camera rear, lacking an LCD display.   Amen to a tool that helps the user focus on the craft; not the end result!

The first digital camera without an LCD display:

A switch hitting camera?  …let’em bat lefty!

  1. ha. the last time i tried to hold down this ideology i spent 40 bucks on disposable cameras wanting to be cooler than the rest with my “focus on the craft!” this is awesome. price check?

    • Camera isn’t being made yet so there isn’t a price yet.
      I actually emailed the designer about commercialization, but haven’t heard back from him yet.
