HOLGA 2.0 RANGEFINDER CAMERA
Made in Solidworks
The Holga is an iconic medium format 120 film camera made in Hong Kong known for its plastic low-cost design. It's beloved for its unique retro picture quality and clunky aesthetic.
I disassembled a Holga to learn about its components. I created a diagram of the explosion model.
I wanted to create a more modern update to the classic Holga featuring customizable electronic dials, a larger viewfinder, and better ergonomic packaged in a sleeker glossy plastic body.

This was the final project for my Sophomore Year Solidworks class taught by Prof. Adam Smith.
