What does TLR stand for?
TLR stands for Twins Lens Reflex. Simple.
Yes yes, it is similar to the DIY Recesky TLR, Blackbird Fly TLR and Gakkenflex TLR. The kinda look-down-and-shoot-camera. Cool, huh? It's maybe good for people who are lazy to squat or bend over to take photos.
Holga produces 3 types of TLR - Holga 120TLR, Holga 120GTLR, Holga 135TLR and Holga 135BC TLR. As most of you should know, "G" stands for glass lens. So the difference between 120TLR and 120GTLR is that, the former has plastic lens, while the latter has glass lens. Besides giving you the classic features of Holga - light leaks and vignettes, the top viewfinder allows you to take more hip shots! With built in colour flash system, you can have a burst of colours in your shots!
