Can I get a refund if it works?

2009-03-09

These days, lousy manufacturing quality would normally be an excuse for returning a product. But this camera on amazon is apparently being sold on the basis that it’s poorly made.

From the description:

Soft focusing, […] intense vignetting, and unpredictable light leaks all contribute to the Holga’s incredible photo effects.

Certainly, a use of the term “photo effects” that would confuse Photoshop users, methinks.

Each Holga is unique and produces signature images and peculiarities of its own.

Yeah, who needs to squander creative bodily fluids on the drudge of post-processing, when the camera can screw up your pictures right away?
