Cannonmate Camera

2

A plastic camera that is automatic -- in rewinding and winding the film.

I found a plastic camera in my friend’s house. So we tested it to prove that this baby is still functioning. I bought Fuji color film and instantly snapped it inside the camera. Problem is, it wasn’t properly loading. Soon I found out it needed two (2) AA batteries so that the wind-and-rewind will function.

Hassle free, this camera is a focus free one,comes with a 30mm focal length, a plastic lens that is said made from a “Japan” lens, shutter speed I think is fixed in 1/250 or 1/500.

I was surprised by the results! It includes a vignette when a photo is shot under a cloudy day! I say, I would love to load Lomo X-Pro film with this one!! It captures subtle colors with a taste, of course! Check out the pictures if you want! :)
