    For .99, I didn't do too bad. I shot a roll of 100 ISO TMax in it one day...just walking around the park and got some really ODD double takes as the camera is SCHOOL BUS yellow and black. It reminds me of a plastic bumble bee.

    *edit* It's totally plastic and I love it! It's different. It's weird. It's kinda crazy looking and functional.

    What is it? The results are quite pleasing.

    It doesn't even have a brand name on it...just says Panoramic on it. *shrugs* I found it at a 2nd hand store and for .99, I couldn't pass it up.

    my guess is that its an ultronic panoramic or a something similar that was givin away with magazine subscriptions in the 80's....I've had a few. I particularly like the Vivitar IC101 which I got new in a box on ebay for 4$. I've posted a few shots below from the Vivitar all shot on expired reala :wink: I really love this little camera and have been meaning to shoot with it again.

    Those cameras are great! Sure can't beat the price!

    I love Fuji Reala. The all around best color film IMHO.

    I have one of these, too. It merely says "Focus Free" on the front and has a switch on top that rotates from "N" (normal) to "P" (panoramic).

    Those are all great photographs. Mine won't switch from normal to panoramic...just pano but does say focus free on the front of it. It's the neatest cheap (meaning I paid almost nothing for it) camera I've ever purchased.
