Holga iPhone filter case takes retro photos

The Holga iPhone Lens Filter Kit is a case that comes equipped with a telephone dial full of funky Holga filters. Split your images, turn them red, and add halos of color the old-fashioned way.

The original Holga toy cameras were all about reveling in low fidelity. Just because you have fancy modern camera technology in your iPhone doesn't mean you have to forgo all the fun.

The Holga iPhone Lens Filter Kit will whisk your iPhone back to an '80s level of cheap camera design with a rotating kaleidoscope of plastic filters.

The filter kit fits on like a case and sports nine different color and special effect filters. These range from the tame to the wacky.

You can go with a simple red-hued filter or select the quadruple image lens to produce four identical images melded together into a dreamscape.

The telephone dial design gives you easy access to your image experiments. You get a bit of the old Holga flare without having to track down a place to get film developed.

A Holga lens Kitchen Sink kit for SLRs came out earlier this year for an affordable $108.99, but you can outfit your iPhone with a full selection of filters for $24.99. The case itself comes in black, red, white, blue, and silver.
