It is precisely for this reason that my next marque will be a Holga. It
is the antithesis of perfection and therefore looks to be exciting and
refreshing. It has good bokeh. When taped black it is unobtrusive. Looks
like a toy so no one is threatened. Auto focus. Big negs. Price is far
below any insurance deductible so if you lose it or have it stolen you
don't even bother reporting it. Flash synchs at all speed. :-)
