is a real toy camera. It's based on a basic, cheap standard black
plastic model, 1 speed, 1 aperture, manual film advance and rewind. The
rest is a solid plastic mould in vivid colours, a toy model of Disney's
Donald Duck Car. It seems to be rare, there is little information about
it. Obviously it was marketed by Nestlé, maybe in the late 70s or the
early 80s. You had to buy several of their products, send in the proof
and could then get the camera. If you have more information, please le
Its main features are:
Moderate wide angle plastic lens, F8, focus free, 1.2 m-∞ Shutter ca. 1/100 Size 160x90x80, Weight 245 gr.

back and top. Viewer, film advance via a dented wheel, and shutter
release, well integrated in one of the car wheels. There is even a hot
Car taken apart. You have to force a little bit and one part comes off. Film rewind, , no film counter.
The camera part.
Rewind lever raised.
Film compartment. Note the curved film plane, it helps against the vignetting of the simple plastic lens.
The camera inside seems to be the same model as the Altic camera on my site. These
are the ultimate basics of a camera, focus free, single shutter speed
and about F8 fixed aperture. Point and shoot only. If you choose the
film, ISO 400 in general and ISO 200 on very sunny days, you can shoot
outside photos that look o.k.. The rest will be "Lomo" style, but you
can use flash for interior photos. There were other toys like this,
built into fake soda cans or other fancy bodies. These are collectibles
on their own that I will not collect, I just came across this one and
had to have it for fun. You should have used one of these
once in your life! This one will wait untll I find a matching Donald
Duck for a fun series.
