Cool Gear: Holga iPhone Lens Filter and Case

Cool Gear: Holga iPhone Lens Filter

Mobile Monday is a weekly CanvasPop blog series featuring reviews on some of the coolest mobile photography apps, or gear available. Check back on Mondays for a new review!

Add a bit of a nostalgic touch to your iPhone images, with the Holga iPhone Lens Filter. Pop the case over your phone, and it’s pin-wheel style lens has 9 different special effect options available. We love this lens because of it’s versatility, simplicity and price point — it retails for only $25.99. We also dig it’s retro look! The lenses are meant to mimic the original 1981 Holga which was a 120mm film format, plastic toy camera with a lo-fi “lomo” style.

Our favorite filter option available is the blue filter, with a clear center. It allows your subject in the center to stand out, with it’s surrounding cast in blue to mimic a gentle moon atmosphere. Other options available for your images span from a 60mm macro lens, to a red filter that reduces absorption of blue and green light.
