Alright, So I think I’ve decided on 3 trim levels for the Holga.
1) Si-Holga - Blind
Here is a photo of my original one, to give you an idea what it will look like. http://www.tumblr.com/photo/1280/12914539166/1/tumblr_lusg2k9HUt1qfs9bq
This one is similar the original one I made, I’ll be using Velvet instead of duct tape on any orders I get. It will have no finder, it will sport a relocated hotshoe.
I think $110 plus shipping is fair. $25-35 dollars for the holga I have to buy, $20-40 for the polaroid back which I have to buy or hack apart. $12 for a pack of film that I will have to put in it to test for light leaks (This means all of them will come loaded with atleast 7 shots, depending on how many it takes to confirm no leaks, maybe more maybe less I will inform you!), and finally about 5-10 dollars on raw material/tool maintenance. This means at cost the camera will cost me $62-92 to produce. Leaving me a few bucks to buy things like more camera stuff for me so I can keep developing and making fun stuff.
So Final price is $110 plus shipping.
2) Si-Holga - N (ormal)
This one will sport all the original bits the holga 120 has, so the finder will not be hacked off, rather relocated and I will test it during the light leaks test to atleast tell you that it is semi-accurate (not that it was ever accurate to begin with)
Pricing and reasoning is $120 plus shipping. For 1 reason. I have to do more work rather than just hacking it off and throwing the finder away I’ll have to relocated it.
3) Si-Holga - S(uper)
Here is a photo of the Si-Holga S(uper) http://greedphotography.tumblr.com/post/14049261189/the-new-si-holga-s-uper-features-tlr
This will be derived from the TLR model. meaning it comes with the TLR finder as well as the colored gel flash (future options maybe available for ND gels instead of colored gels). It will not have a hotshoe due to the TLR model lacking one, but if you really want one email me and I’ll see what I can put together.
This will cost $150 plus, for the reason that the TLR model just costs 30 dollars more to buy.
Other options you can ask me for is Velvet color. If you really feel inclined I can go buy different color’d velvet to add on top of the black to seal the camera.
If you’d like to order one email me at ChristopherChang@greedphotography.com. And we’ll work out the details, payment will probably have to be paypal or cash if you live near by me.
Otherwise does this sound fair?
