Camera Buying Advice

Hello Toy Camera Enthusiasts!

I’d appreciate your advice on buying a Holga (or similar) camera.

I’ve done a bit of research but I still don’t know a lot.

#Does anyone have experience in buying the cameras from Ebay suppliers in Hong Kong?

#Other than the basic camera, please explain what all the accessories can do? I’m not so much interested in the fish-eye effect, but I like the other effects from these cameras.

#I see that the cameras can come with different size films. What are the pros and cons of the sizes and does it make any difference?

#I just bought a Canon 400D – would I be better off getting a lens for this camera that will give me the lomo effect, if in fact such lenses do exist?

Anything else you can tell me would be appreciated.
