    Humm. I've always sort of "half way wanted" a half frame of some kind or other, though I confess I really don't know why. Weren't there a couple of versions of the Samurai, one more deluxe than the other?

    Besides being a big ungainly and ugly compact camera Clive it was as heavy as some medium format cameras.

    I've tried several times to get an AiBorg, just to add it to my collection of oddities. I'm dying to see if the lens is any good.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    It and a Pontiac Aztek would go well together.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    They must be quite rare now because when I sold cameras for a living they were so uglyI never found anyone who wanted to actually part with money for one, but here's one to give you an idea of the price http://collectiblend.com/Cameras/Kon...ca-Aiborg.html

    Actually I think the Leningrad Space FAS-1 no. YA61108 (1968) must now be a close second.

    At least that has the saving grace of having been a special purpose camera.
