    Cheap plastic cameras seem like the appropriate stocking stuffers for apug members to give and receive. Looking around, there appears to be more options then I thought, beyond the Holga's and Lubitel's. There are even upgrades available and accessories. Which model would you suggest?

    My Christmas stocking is a little over-sized - just right for an M7 if there are any generous Santas out there. :wink:

    Before it got LOMOIZED I picked up a cool little Smena Symbol zone focus 35mm complete with Blik clip on range finder for $15.00. I got the camera for the auxiliary range finder as many of my older cameras have no means of determining distance. It a gas to shoot.
    Stay away from the 8M. Its really bad.

    I need bigger stockings. What I really, really want is an old German 24x30cm plate camera. And the stockings I have will barely take one of the cute little 6x4.5cm ones...

    ooh, stocking stuffer cameras. that reminds me of the Lomo cameras, like the Action Sampler. cheap little plastic camera with 4 lenses and a fixed aperture on a rotating disc. fun for all ages. takes 35mm film. http://shop.lomography.com/actionsampler/

    A Pentax 110 would also be interesting.
