I want a Lomography camera, but I’ve never used/owned one before, what should I get?


I want a Lomography camera, but I\’ve never used/owned one before, what should I get?

I’ve always loved film camera’s, and I own a Polaroid, but I can’t afford to pay for the film (which is $25 for a pack of 8 pictures)
So I looked into Lomo camera’s and I’ve fallen in love with the photographs.
I love how dreamy everything looks and I love the vignette and colors. I want to get one, but I’m lost on what to get. I’ve even looked into the film and where I can get it developed but I’m worried that I won’t be able to find a place to do it.
I need a camera that isn’t very pricey (I would like to not break $50) and I need film that isn’t going to be a problem to develop, either. I’m willing to send it off to develop it, but it can’t be really expensive, either. I was thinking between a Diana F+ http://shop.lomography.com/us/cameras/diana-f-family/diana-f-w-o-flash
or maybe a Holga 120 Pinhole http://shop.lomography.com/us/cameras/holga-cameras/holga-120-pinhole-camera
or possibly a Holga 135 http://shop.lomography.com/us/cameras/holga-cameras/holga-135-black-corner-camera (this one also comes in a pinhole version)
I’ve only worked with DSLRs and a couple point and shoots, so I’m pretty lost. If anyone could help me, that’d be great. I’d like the camera that takes the clearest photo, but isn’t a hassle for a first time user.
Thanks!
