Review – Sports 35 Toy Camera

 
I love this camera and not knowing what exactly you are going to get. I hauled it around the San Francisco Bay area while friends were visiting and took it to very touristy places. It was great because I looked just like everyone else taking pictures 😉 These cameras were pretty popular in the 80’s and 90’s and can be found pretty easily on Ebay or Etsy for pretty cheap at an average of about $15.

The camera is mainly black with different colors around the four lens in the middle of the camera.  I am not quite sure when it made, but I am guessing it was in the eighties and has continued to be made to this day. It went manufactured under many names including the Action Tracker and private branded by corporations as giveaways. It is now manufactured by Lomography and is called the Action Sampler.  The camera takes four pictures on a 24x36mm negative frame.  The shutter spins around to each frame in about 1 sec, this gives each lens about a 1/4 sec shot all with a fixed focus.
