I know nothing about this camera. All I know is what I garnered from the actual camera. It takes 35mm film and has a 45mm lens.
Ok so what else can I say…hmm…Fixed focus, flash with pc sync, and aperture choices of f8, f11, or f16. The shutter is a spring mechanism, much like holgas or brownies, very toy like. I would guess the speed is around 1/50th, also very toy like. The labels stating the name and model are stickers so maybe it is a generic model released by different brands?? There isn’t even a “made in…” stamp on the camera.
A reverse image search only brings up my own image on another post and a couple of eBay listings. So no help there. That’s it I am done.
I put a roll of Kodacolor 200 film in a took a few shots before transferring the film to another camera. I just didn’t want to use a whole film in this camera, it just seemed so, well, naff. Here are the results.
The final shots did not contain everything I initially composed. This can especially be seen in shot of the gravestone. There is no way I would have missed the top, I didn’t even sneeze at the time. This example’s results are also a little hazy.
And done, I can’t say much without any research or links. Erm…it has a metal top and bottom, everything else is plastic. The body is covered in a cheap plastic skin which comes off very easily…oooh maybe I can at least pimp this out??
Does anyone out there know anything about this camera?

It certainly adds a bit of an artistic flair to the images. Here’s one along the same lines. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NICCA-L-3-35mm-FILM-CAMERA-50mm-f-1-6-COLOR-OPTICAL-LENS/273982964831?hash=item3fcaa8445f:g:wTUAAOSwmTpdZdDu
It’s obviously not made by Nicca as they were acquired by Yashica back in 1958. Looks Chinese made with various top plate changes.

Oooh, it does look very similar. It seems to be like all those crappy SLR give away cameras like the Nokina??

Ya can’t beat the price (in the US) for cute little “gem” like this.
