5.0 out of 5 stars Fun lens
A lens for less than 15!

I use this on my EOS 650D which with the APS-C sensor makes the 60mm lens the equivalent of 90mm. This magnification has made for a fun little portrait lens.

Focussing is via a series of icons, it is too dark to focus through the view finder, I believe it has a fixed aperture of f8. If you don't take it too seriously, are...

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and fun
For the price, you can't ask for more... an easy way to take different (slightly vintage) photos. Would buy again.

This review is from: Holga Lens for Canon EOS 7D 100D 700D 650D 600D 550D 500D 450D 400D 350D 1100D 1000D Rebel T5i T4i T3i T3 T2i T1i XSi XTi XT Black (Electronics)
A lens for less than 15!

Focussing is via a series of icons, it is too dark to focus through the view finder, I believe it has a fixed aperture of f8. If you don't take it too seriously, are happy using manual mode and can't be bothered faffing in Photoshop to get the same effect, then go for it. Actually, no, just get one, for 15 can you really go wrong?

5.0 out of 5 stars A very unique lens that's difficult to describe, 28 Feb 2013

This review is from: Holga Lens for Canon EOS 7D 100D 700D 650D 600D 550D 500D 450D 400D 350D 1100D 1000D Rebel T5i T4i T3i T3 T2i T1i XSi XTi XT Black (Electronics)
So postage, packaging, delivery, physical condition and accurate reflection of advertised product are all 5 stars. Made of plastic and very light weight but the plastic is strong and the printed text and numbers is clear and good quality. It's a safe solid buy and therefore as a product it has to be 5 stars because the images it produces can only be purely judged as opinion. The lens itself is really strange. I ran a few test shots and videos and it creates lots of shadows and colour and movement. I bought it for dream sequences and music videos and although i've not used it on set yet I believe it will be a good lens for heavily stylized shooting. It requires a lot of light to get best results (not great if your filming in Scotland) but it is a very unique look. This is a lens that will either serve a very specific purpose for you or will be an interesting curio that you experiment with. Overall it's a very strange but well made lens.

I got this along with a turret lens, which has exactly the same feature on it, I'm now stuck with this lens as to return it and get a refund I have to send it back to hong kong! They were slow in verifying the return and also gave me a return address which wasn't valid. I wouldn't bother!

Cheap and light you can keep in the bag all the time. I used this lens on a EOS 40d and now on a Fuji X-e2 via adapter.

The effect is a very retro look with high vignetting and pasted colours. I think you have to think well the composition before applying this particular effect. In any case I prefer to get the right image in the camera then to spend my time with photoshop ...
You have to be warned that the lens is very dark despite the f/8 aperture. You need a lot of light or to raise The ISO to correctly expose your picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like Holga, 22 May 2014

I also have a Holga camera and I can say that this lens duplicates the effect perfectly. With the advantage, of course, that it attaches to a DSLR so you can see what you're shooting. I use it with my 700D. Perfect!

I saw this lens as quite a cheap lil thing i would try out, i didn't expect much from it and neither should you. If you're new to dslr's give this lens a go but don't expect any kind of good quality.

It does what you expect, you need a lot of light but for the price it's great and you get that nice soft lomo effect
