pictured above is the fujipet, a japanese toy camera that has basically become my holy grail of toy cameras. the next time i’m in japan, my main goal is to get me one of these cameras. there’s a nice thread on this camera here(where i stole the picture from).

the kind people at toycameras.com have pointed me towards some galleries of toy cameras. andreas wolkerstorfer has a nice gallery, as does alfred. there’s a nice gallery of dianas (and it’s clones) here. and then there’s this cool gallery of cameras found at junk stores. the junk store camera site also has a great diana camera musical that’s not to be missed, especially for those that like the kinds of films you’d find at the prelinger archives.
