This was a [35mm] [toy camera] given out free with subscriptions of Time Magazine. Unlike other toy cameras, however, the lens is actually of reasonable quality and made of glass, and the pictures it takes are fairly sharp. Identical models were made and given out with Sports Illustrated, as well as sold cheaply. There is a standard [hot shoe] on the top of the camera, and several other features not usually found on toy cameras, such as a coupled [frame counter].

Technical data:

[Fixed focus] 50mm single-element glass lens One shutter speed of about 1/100th sec, no B Variable [aperture] from about f/5.6 to about f/16 (marked as "cloudy" to "sunny" Viewfinder
