Lomopedia: Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim

Loved by many toy camera fans all over the world for its compact and sleek packaging, the Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim also delivers beyond aesthetics. See how this camera fares in another installment of Lomopedia!

What can you expect from a cute little toy camera? Occasional light leaks? Playful colors? Vignettes? Take all of those things and add wide-angle shots to the mix and you get the widely popular Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim.

The allure of the Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim (UWS) comes not only from its wide-angle shots and slim body, but also from the quality of pictures it can produce. Doing well over the usual toy camera standards of the earlier days, the Vivitar UWS is an all-mechanical compact camera that comes as light as most toy cameras do.

The Vivitar UWS boasts a cute 22mm lens that can certainly surprise usual 35mm shooters with the wide-angle shots it can produce. Also, watch out for the Vivitar UWS’s remarkable vignetting. Apart from that, users of the Vivitar UWS laud the compact camera for the unusual but beautiful light flare effects you can get when shooting directly at the sun.
