Brownie Starflash Camera

Huge inbuild reflector for this little guy. This is the french-made version, besides the US one. Inscriptions are in french.
End of the line for the Minolta Hi-Matics, missing the beauty of the first models. The camera is fully plastic, has a film-motor, automatic exposure, a build-in flash and autofocus, more improvements were hard to made.
QL = Quick Load
GIII = (up)Grade 3
This is the top of the top of the Canonet serial.
The denomination of "G", is still actual in Canon digital camera's, size, type and design close to the Canonets.
One of the simple models of the Paxina-line. The lens is collapsible, 3 speeds, 3 diaphragma sizes, 9 possible exposures. Easy to diy a pinhole-camera, removing the lens and just add a pinplate, the collapsed lens is close to the negative to have relatively wide shots.
3D, but four lenses. Nowadays some companies still develop the lenticular 3D pictures. Interesting is that besides this technique, the camera can be used for simple stereoscopic pictures, cross-eyed or parallel. By cutting of the negatif separation inside the camera it's possible to make a panoramic of it.
Found in fotogear with a Nikon F1, this black boy has a bad skin, a missing shutter, but seem in a mechanical working order. The shutterbutton is missing, seems to work with electrical contact, maybe time to DIY.,...
I just had to screw this Sony 0,7 wide lens addon, to the Pentax.
Strangely it works very well, a bit blurry at the edges and whitout spherical deformation.
The equivalent is : (Pentax APS-C x 1,5) - (Wide lens x 0,7) - (on the 18mm-55mm zoom) makes a nice 19mm fullframe (equiv).
Found on the net : Manufacturer Overview.
The subject of this review is HP's PhotoSmart 215 digital camera, a 1.3-megapixel unit designed for the ultimate in operating simplicity. As such, it lacks the controls for exposure and white balance adjustment we're accustomed to seeing on the more advanced cameras we commonly test. Even lacking such controls though, it proved surprisingly adept at producing usable images under a wide variety of shooting conditions. For those images requiring post-capture tweaking and adjustment, we found its software to be both friendly and functional. While other cameras may boast higher resolution or more advanced exposure controls, the PhotoSmart 215 offers an easy entry to the world of digital photography at a very affordable price: If you're mainly interested in emailing images or prints 4x6 inches or smaller, the PhotoSmart 215 could be a good choice.
...and this was 10 years ago.
Not produced by Xerox, but it has his imprint.
Digital toycamera with interesting design, red in chubby plastic.
I forget to mention : 0,3 Megapixel, Entire Glass Single Focus Lens, F. NO=1.8 (waaooow), Focal Distance F= 6.0 (I think, it's hard to get anything sharp with such a combination.)
I always asked myself why rotating lenses are good for?
Ok, for the point and shoot with the viewer, Ok, for the waist-level viewer, Ok, for the point and view screen,...
But with rotating screens or lenses, you get, if you are acrobatic, an endless of possible combinations of body and camera for shooting, that can beat the Kamasutra!
Nice and compact, with the funny plastic door to uncover the lens...but...
If you are right-handed, you probably want to hold the camera on its right side, to press the shutter aswell...but...
...your fingers will cover the flash...
Maybe designed for users with a two-fingers right hand.
How to fit a motor, a flash, batteries, and an expositionmechanism with electronics, in a camera,...make it loooong!
Owners of Lomo LCA, could be jealous on this one, the Toma has 2 bright red leds in the viewer indicating that the flash is ready and that the exposition is correct.
Found at " La braderie de Lille", this camera has the inscrition "Made in Germany" on his back and has a french-made lens, probably a past- WWII-collaboration. Notice that the metal of the frontpanel is oxidised by the years. Surely not made by the Krupp-factory. The french were well know as rusty-car builders in the past.
