Everybody's trying to come up with a digital Holga.

It's the Holy Grail of hipster camera manufacture. No one can seem to get 
the image _bad_ enough in a good way. Sad attempts have been mounting Holga 
lenses on a 35mm sensor (but the lens is actually relatively sharp in the 
center) the LensBaby (which, imho, succeeds only in making a photo with out 
of focus edges, (though they're in Gen 3 of trying and apparently making 
money hand over fist) and badging ordinary crappy digital cameras as "the 
new D-Holga!" but nobody's been able to mimic that quality. I suspect that 
someone who put their mind to it could come up with a PhotoShop action that 
would simulate it better than any camera.

The last Digtial Holga people went nuts over was the Yashica EZ F521 which 
was even cooler because you couldn't get one in the US:
