Here's a nifty and ultra-cool plastic camera - the discontinued Vivitar “point and shoot” ULTRA WIDE & SLIM camera.

The all mechanical / all plastic camera uses 35mm film and has no electronics or need for a battery to function.

With a fixed f11 aperture and a w-i-d-e 22mm lens, the camera delivers gorgeous lo-fi pictures.

Current price tag on e-bay: $50. (if your lucky to find one). Occasionally the FPP On-Line Store 35mm Camera Page will have inventory on vintage Viv Ultra Wide & Slim cameras or the SuperHeadz "Slim Devil" (same as the Ultra Wide & Slim!)

Love the camera and certainly easy to carry in your pocket for outdoor shooting!
