|The Cortland CX-7, mint in box!|
I have had many of these cameras over the years end up at my door, and all are variants on the same basic specifications.
|the Original TIME camera|
|The Sceptre 800|
|The great Photoflex MX-35|
None of them would be called a good camera, and I believe that even the most basic Kodak Instamatics took better quality photos. However, one never knows the results until a roll of film is put through one. I'll slap a roll of b&w into the Cortland and see what results I get. They do accept a manual flash unit, so they can be used indoors. The actual value? While there are those on ebay that might describe these types of cameras as something else, these are cheap plastic toy cameras. Perhaps slightly better than a Holga 35. They are not worth much, but if you find one at a thrift shop for a buck, buy it and have fun. I do have results on this blog for another variant, the CMYK camera. Your results may vary, just as mine did.
