The Holga 120S is a medium format 120 film camera by Universal Electronics ( Holga )
Images are captured at 6x45, but many choose to remove the film mask for 6x6 images. The optical lens is made from plastic and is 60mm with a f/8 aperture. There are four positions to the focusing, 1m (single), 2m (trio), 6m (group) and 10m-inf (mountain). There a shutter speed of approx 1/100 of a sec. The camera back still uses a red window with a vertical slider to choose number of exposures for either 6x6 or 6x45. The back is attached with thin metal latch pieces that slide upwards to lock. There are built-in loops for camera strap attachments also on them. The design of the back attachment is badly implemented and can allow back to fall off as they are very easy to slide downwards. The finder is designed for the square 6x6 format.
A flash version is called Holga 120SF. A glass lens version is available called Woca 120G while the glass lens with flash is called Woca 120GF.
A newer version was release circa 2003 called the Holga 120N.
