    "Light Emitting Camera is a specialty for PETS and INFANTS. Lit lights up and moves in turns while you are taking pictures. This is how you get the attention of our favorite pets and adorable baby for lovely pictures"

    This is what I've been missing all this time!

    I know I'm bad but hey! I'm Asian-American too!

    "Our photographs are of the highest quality, with good resolution and high
    contradistinction, which you can only expect from famous
    branded same category cameras"


    I need more contradistiction in my photographs.

    flashy lights and stuff sounds like the Holga Meow camera. I'd love one of those... catface with blinky lights and it apparently plays awful tunes. One day...

    They seem to do wholesale/OEM only.

    But wait, one of their cameras will come to you. I once got one of their cameras at the local Lidl or Aldi store (the latter should be known to you in the US too.)
    This plant seems identical to that one once founded by Kodak and is then said to be largest of its kind.

    Ooh I've not seen cameras at Lidl... At least not advertised. I'll have to keep a lookout for them here.

    Last easter Lidl had a huge hollow chocolate egg filled with a single use camera for about 5€.
    Funny. And great for any toy camera collector: the ultimate invisible camera.
