Made in the 50s (or 60s?) by Haking in Hong Kong, this old beauty takes 120 roll film and churns out 12 square photos. It allows you to choose between normal (I) and bulb (B) mode, and offers three apertures f8, f11 & f16 for all your creative needs. It spots a Meniscus lens and produces photos that are similar to those from a Diana camera! Being a focus free camera, there is no need to spend too much time adjusting knobs & dials to focus. Just point at the subject and fire! Cool isn’t it?
It’s hard writing a review for a simple yet cool camera like this. Basically there isn’t much to set before taking a photo … just make sure you select the aperture according to lighting condition … then fire! Yeah, that’s it! No focusing necessary! No setting of shutter speed necessary!
From photos, the camera looks pretty solidly built but in actual fact, it’s very light but seems pretty durable.
