At some point over the last couple of months, someone mentioned the Holga Filter Wheel for Canon camera special effects. I ordered one and am currently experimenting with the two wheels. Oh, just a note about the company. I got the lens off Amazon because I didn't know I could purchase it directly from Holga. I am having trouble figuring out how to focus, since the filter wheel attaches directly to the camera, not to the lens like most filters. So I sent them an email to inquire how to focus. They asked for my order number. I told them I got it from Amazon. They actually wrote back that they refuse to answer my question because I wasn't a customer. Needless to say I wrote them back that I would be sure to trash their company and advise everyone to never buy from them. Talk about lack of customer service.
I like some of the effects, but others are a little weird and I have to figure out how best to use them. I shot some of the Christmas lights but as I said, I don't know how to focus or how close/far I should stand.
This was using the flash and it gave it a kind of dreamy look.
I picked up some funky, psychedelic glasses at my fave store in Plymouth. When you put them on, rainbows shoot out from every light source. Decided to try it in front of my camera lens.
WOW! This totally exceeded my expectations!
I actually think I like the glasses better than the filter wheel!
