I've been looking for a box-type-camera during the past few days. So single meniscus, single shutter speed roll-film camera. And then I encountered this beauty Laugh 1

For 10 euro, I could not let it pass Thank You Dog

Anyone else here using this?

Never seen this before. It's looking quite dangerous. Wink

Yes, it sure is one of the ugliest camera's ever made. Apparently, over a million were produced.

It's 60/11, single meniscus (so 1 group / 1 element Mr. Green)

Meanwhile found this with a bit more details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scc1ke1Im8M
Apparently, the aperture can also be set to 16 and 22, and it actually has 2 shutter speeds: 1/60 and B.

Shooting format is 6*4.5...
...with pics in landscape if the camera is held vertically Rolling Eyes

I'm not really expecting much from it, but thought it could be a fun break to shoot something this basic. And it makes a ridiculous display item Razz

If you're looking for a serious 645 roll-film camera I can recommend the Fuji GA645 Professional; IMHO the only AF and automatic exposure point and shoot medium format camera ever produced. Even the flash is integrated.
I like mine as it really produces excellent pictures very easily and it's almost pocketable as well. Can be found quite reasonable nowadays, but not for EUR 10.- Wink

Thanks Thomas! I am aware of several Fuji MF-camera's, but not this one. Looks good! Maybe something for the future Smile
