The original!

I earlier wrote about the copied version Slim Wide Angel from SuperHeadz, which I liked so much, that when I found out it was a copy, I need to find and own the original from Vivitar.

There is not that much more I can’t add, then what I already wrote about the Slim Wide Angel.

I still love the 22mm lens, that the camera is all plastic, weighs close to nothing and fits perfectly in your back pocket.

Nowadays you can get one for around $40 bucks on eBay, but a quick search didn’t get that many hits, so it might get more expensive over time. (in the same search the SuperHeadz version came up as well, some are actually asking $370 for a brand-new one, wow that is insane!)

The camera is definitely not for everybody, but hey! I really dig it.

I’ll give this one a 3.5 rating – 0,5 more than the SuperHeadz – because it’s the original one.
