It's a real camera alright but it's worth nothing.

Looks like an old film camera that has been thru the wars.

Looks like one I got for going to look at a campground scam. They swore it was worth at least & 200.00.

I didn't buy.

I can be sure it has never been thru any war. No war photographer would use it. An old film camera that's been thru wars is worth a whole lot more (even not working).

It's a no name camera with fixed shutter speed around 1/60 or 1/125. It has about 3 zones focusing and a few aperture. It's all plastic. Isn't better than the disposable one. New they were sold for about $5 but I don't even think it's worth that when new. If I have one I simply toss it. I've seen a good number of them before.

its an all plastic "give away" 35mm camera that was literally given away to magazine subscribers free when they subscribed. Many different magazines did this in the 70s and 80s with most putting a sticker on them with their name.

Sounds like the Diana, except the Dianas don't have the flash shoe.

And a fine AFD to you, too.

Kodak, Lomo, and others, have made real film cameras entirely out of plastic, which took real film, and took real pictures. Some used 35mm, and others used 120 / 220 film. This looks like one such item, but it would be hard to tell for sure without actually examining it.

Looks like it still has the dust from the bottom of the Cracker Jacks box.
