E73 Remimagining the Holga

Graham received a message on Etsy from ArlenB asking if it’s possible to recreate the Holga with a few twists.

“Out of curiosity, is there anything preventing you from making the plans to print a regular Holga 120GCFN, with an interchangeable lens, zone focusing, and no light leaks, or is that too difficult?”

This episode is a discussion about a potential Holga replacement.

E65 Stereo Photography

Ethan, Nick, and Graham get together to talk about stereo photography, the use of two lenses to create images that appear to be in 3D. 

Graham is enthusiastic. 

Nick is skeptical.

Ethan is pedantic. 

Ian Fleming (https://www.instagram.com/ifleming/ or simply @ifleming) stops by in the latter part of the show to talk about his experiences with the subject. 

You can read Ethan’s Wiki article about Ren Ng (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren_Ng). However, Ethan’s presentation about stereo photography that he presented in front of 1 (one, as in one more than zero, which we should all acknowledge is greater than zero) is not currently available on the interwebs. He thinks he can resurrect it and if he can, we all think he should put it on the Homemade Camera YouTube. 

And, speaking of, this episode is available on the aforementioned YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ3JmlNccVI&t=140s). If you’ve never been to YouTube, this would be a good time to get your feet wet. It’s a really cool place. Seriously. 

I’m not joking, it’s cool.
