It's easy to get caught on the "better equipment leads to better photographs" treadmill. Last weekend I was sorting out my camara closet. I may not have the best equipment, but I seem to have an awful lot of what I do have. Maybe I should think about upgrading my camera body? It works fine for me, but it is over four years old [sounds of shock fill the audience].
It's so old that readers don't even post messages to the DPReview forum about it anymore.
What's better than seeing an outstanding night photograph taken with a sub-$899 camera? The answer: seeing an outstanding night photograph taken with a sub-$20 camera!

. As Joe points out, the Holga is a plastic medium format camera. The lenses quality is atrocious. That's why photographers love them.
