Sure, that's right. On this very date, 48 years ago, I saw the light of day for the first time. At least that's what I like to think, that there was some kind of daylight present. It happened quite early in the morning, so it was definitely dark at the time, but probably got a little bit better throughout the day.
But that was not the reason for this very short post! I just got the news, that the Holga camera never got any older than 34. They have laid up the business, selling too few cameras these days, even though there's a lot of them still around.
I don't own a Holga, but I got an example of it's cousin, the Diana F+ It's the same thing, more or less. Totally flimsy plastic, loads of leaks, and a bit of fun and unpredictability. Which is good, at times.
Anyway, here's a bit more history to read around the old Holga.
