It’s so tiny, even an adult like me could choke on it! and oh, it uses 110 film in cartridge by the way.
This small crazy camera I bought in the Urban Outfitters shop (where they also sell some Lomo cameras) on my trip to San Francisco. Its really tiny and cute, made entirely from plastic with a metal hook. Costs 9 USD. There is a metal clamp for attaching to a belt or perhaps to serve as a key-ring or maybe you can have it as a funky necklace.
This camera uses 110 mm film in the cassette – for 24 exp., This format was really popular in 70s. The plastic lens has no explanation of focal length I guess its equivalent of 45mm for 35mm camera. Camera has a fixed aperture time which is probably around 1/25 – 1/30 sec. because the images i took are usually blurry. Focus is also fixed. Sharpness of the lens is quite slim. Serves as a viewfinder small sliding window, which opens also the lens cover. The film I used was a daylight Kodak negative with a poor quality, pictures are grainy with a blue veil – but it was maybe due to developing – I was surprised when the photolab people: “we can develop it but without guarantee”.
This funny camera isn’t much of a usable camera – which is actually the concept of toy cameras, but as a key ring, its quite nice and well ;)
