Katy bought me a Holga 120 GCFN medium-format camera for my birthday last year. Here it is:

Mine has a glass lens which means it leaks a little less light than the plastic lens versions so I may reduce the amount of tape on the cracks to let a little more light in. Both films I've done so far have had one frame where I forgot to take the lens cap off. Seems I'm not the only one:
