NOVELTY  PLASTIC CAMERAS  (REAL cameras)

The Plastic compared to the early Bakelite is strong, safe, easy to mold into various designs and cheap.
Those cameras usualy have poor lens, sometimes light leaks so can be considered more as a toy or a promotion
but some photographers find the foggy-results interesting and artistic...and the DESIGN...
I collect and use only those I find special in design or function

Real cameras  (126, 110, 35mm)
