Time Magazine Camera
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. While the Time Magazine badging is the best known, the camera was also distributed with Sports Illustrated, Franka, Caesars, and other badging. 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.
