Holga for Canon EF
The folks at HolgaDirect sent me a sample of the Holga for EF lens.

If you’re looking for a fun an inexpensive fun tool for your Canon camera, this could fit the bill. It’s optically terrible, but that’s the point. It’ll give your images and video a very unique look.

The focal length is 60mm, 120 medium format. It vignettes on full frame, however you’re supposed to crop a square photo anyway.
