    Kingston DLR ??

    I've just been given a small 40yr old box camera branded Kingston - Double Lens Reflex, made in Hong Kong.

    Its was bought in a store in the late '60s. Construction is plastic with a plastic lens. Doesn't take 35mm, seems a bit too narrow for 120 so perhaps 127 film ?

    Comes with sunny/shade/cloudy settings. Very simple little camera which looks like it works.

    Anyhow, I've googled it and can't find anything at all about it.

    Curious if anyone on apug would have any information at all ?

    Thanks!

    The term "double lens reflex" is really for much older cameras. Are you sure it's not a "twin lens reflex"?

    Definitely says DLR. Was purchased in London by my Dad in Woolworths (he thinks).

    Can't find anything on the make at all.

    If it was made in Hong Kong and sold in Woolworths UK then it was probably made by Haking. Googling
    may turn up something similar, or it may not.
