I can’t really give this camera the design rating it might have deserved, because it’s a copy – made by superheadz – of a Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim camera, so they get the full credit for the design.
It’s all plastic!!
There is not a shard of metal or glass in this camera, and that might upset a lot of people, but I really love the all plastic camera. Even the 22mm lens is plastic.
One downside to the all plastic design, is that the film rewinder at the bottom of the camera easily breaks, mine is. And it makes a bit hard to rewind the film once you done with it.
If you know how to load a 35mm film.
Which is not that hard – it’s a piece of cake operating this camera, because there are no settings at all. It’s either push the shutter or not, that’s the only “settings” you got.
It was one of the first “lomo” camera’s I bought
I got it in Washington D.C., back in 2009, I don’t remember what I paid for it, but it wasn’t cheap. And it still isn’t, a camera on eBay sets you back in the neighborhood of $70. And that’s a bit much for some. I also think it’s a bit in the high end.
I like that it doesn’t have any settings
Of course that can be a bit of a problem, when you using expired film like I often do.
But that is a minor set-back in my opinion.
The camera is so light and small that you wanna bring it with you every where you go, I sure have had mine on a bunch of trips around the world.
It is by far the camera that I have used the most – at the writing of this review – of all the 100+ analog cameras I have n my collection.
