Whether you love Bratz or a part of Team Barbie, this camera is sure an interesting one to look for!
I bought this odd shaped camera for two reasons. One, I liked the shape and two, i love the pearl-ized paint job with a question mark. And maybe a third reason, it had a roll of film in it. I found it at a thrift store for a few dollars and it is always bonus when these cameras have some film left in them and If it is an exotic film I have never used and outdated, this is even better. Sometimes the film has been partly exposed, either at the thrift store or before someone made it a donation. Sometimes I am surprised by what the strangers shoots, sometimes there are just random shelf shots at the thrift store on the roll….I have to admit I am always a little afraid that if something is illegal and exposed on this film i may have to answer for the other persons bad deed. I had no clue as to who or where this cameras origins where but I wanted it to give it a test.
I brought it home a did some internet searches and found that it also had Bratz written on its body besides the question mark. As it turns out it has something to do with Bratz, the big eyed doll cartoon stuff targeted toward young girls. I am not familiar with this product line but it seems that other than the trademark there is no other relation nor meaning to Bratz: it’s just a point and shoot 35mm camera. These point and shoot fixed focus with flash cameras are great for just snapshot photography. The lens is surprisingly sharp and the built in flash is adequate for snapshot photography. Sometimes you could get a people shot with this kind of non-pretense camera because people do not think you a serious.
Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
