Holga TIM
First things first: the new Holga Twin Image Maker (TIM) has a face. A horrible, drunken, leery face – but a face nonetheless. The people who run this website are going to have a field day with it on that basis alone. For the rest of us, the camera offers cheap, customisable photos that blur the lines between art and mistakes.

Aesthetic choices aside, the main thing here is the two fixed focus plastic lenses. Without getting into the technical stuff, users can individually open and close each lens and in doing so can create a range of different effects. Leave both open and the camera takes 3D photos. Close one and you can mess around with half frame shots.

Once you get sick of the basic functions you can start experimenting with the detachable colour filters, the flash, and the multi-exposure button. Basically, you get a whole lot of art school bang for your buck.

Mess around with the different functions for long enough and you’ll either end up with the World’s Best Photo – or the worst. But therein lies the charm. The Holga TIM is about as reliable as the local drunk after several pints. One minute he’s your best friend, the next he’s accusing you of stealing his job.

It's retailing for just $60 USD. Bonus.
