Yashica EZ F521

Exemode are selling the Yashica EZ F521 called a “Digital Holga” by Crave – it features a manual focus (Macro / Landscape) F3.0 / 7.0mm lens (42.5mm equivalent), 2.4″ screen, a 5 megapixel 1/2.5″ CMOS sensor, VGA 30fps video, 190 shot battery life, SD card support, optical viewfinder, flash, and takes AA batteries. The camera is available for around $89

“However, Yashica’s new EZ F521 may be able to attract some young shutterbugs with its retro styling. We think it looks a lot like the Holga with the optical viewfinder relegated to the right end of the shooter. The F521 seems to be a fuss-free shooter, with only a 5-megapixel sensor, 2.4-inch LCD, and automatic ISO setting. Focusing, though, appears to be manual as the symbol beside the 42.5mm optics indicates macro and landscape options, similar to what the Holga has.”
