plastikcam.comTransparent Ultra Compact 28mm Focus Free Camera
is a so-called toy camera. It's based on a widely sold Vivitar model, which
was also marketed as Bell & Howell, Argus 520 and is still sold as
Hot Shot in vivid colours. It shares the same form and features, but
the front part of this one is transparent so that you can see its
functions and the different plastic parts have been moulded in
vivid colours. Nevertheless it works!
Camera top. Film rewind, film counter and shutter release.
Camera bottom. No tripod socket, wouldn't make sense with 1/125 single speed. Rewind release.
Film compartment. Note the curved film plane, it helps against the vignetting of the simple plastic lens.
are the ultimate basics of a camera, focus free, single shutter speed
and F8 fixed aperture. Point and shoot only. If you choose the right
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. It's very
small, very light and has a wide angle lens. The transparent housing
makes it funny, plastic(k) fantastic. You should have used one of these
once in your life!
