I own 15 cameras, 2 of which are digital and 13 are analogue. My cheapest one is a yellow Holga 120 GCFN from the Lomography online shop, a bargain for less than 40 Euro. I'm using different films with it, often expired and/or lomography films.
With my Holga, I especially like the crispy and sharp center, the blurry edges and the vignette. From time to time you'll get a "fat roll“ (which happens when the roll of film wasn't correctly wound up) causing light leaks... that can give some really nice effects. Expired films can bring cool surprises too!
I always enjoyed taking pictures. And when digital cameras came out, I bought myself a Sony V1 and later a Canon DSLR with several lenses and a Leica X1. But digital photography started to bore me one day and at that time I visited a lomography exhibition at a music festival, some time in 2009. I was fascinated by the images. The colors, contrasts, the mood and the fact that most of the photography rules (i.e. golden section/ratio) were ignored. A few month later I bought myself a Diana Mini… no.1 of 13 in my collection by now…
My advice to those people who wanted to pursue photography but feels like they can't because they don't have their hands on the latest equipment is for them to just buy a cheap camera or a used old camera, go get some films and start shooting! You can buy expired films or cheap films at drugstores. Maybe you can start developing your own films at home. That saves money and brings a lot of fun.
