Saikat Biswas on his Holga D Concept:
The original Holga camera has so few functions that you don’t get distracted by the technicalities. The Holga D camera is also based on the same principal. Even though it has more functions and controls compared to the analog Holga but it is designed in such a way that it discourages fiddling around with camera-settings and and encourages you to just shoot without thinking much.
What makes the Holga great is its unpredictability, the way how the lack of feature stood up and let us be present with our subject, leaving all the worries and doubts that shield us from seeing the truth and let us just create on pure curiosity and vision driven actions, and Saikat’s design is based on that fact, but he didn’t just stop at great look, he brings accessibility to it by a reversible top panel for left-hand users.
Now that is good design.
