The Vivitar V335 is a 35mm SLR camera manufactured by Cosina and marketed by Vivitar in the late 1980s.[1] With a 1/2000 second top shutter speed, but lacking a self-timer, its features and styling match the Cosina CT1 EX.

In 1987, Vivitar sponsored an art project created by ninth grade students at Peet Junior High School in Cedar Falls, Iowa, in which the students created a "megasculpture" of a Vivitar V335 camera. The giant camera was constructed from plywood and masonite and measured 16 feet wide and 21 feet high. It included a flash unit and two Kodakcolor VR-G 200 film boxes. The flash unit actually fired, weighed 300 lbs, and had to be hoisted onto the camera by means of a fire department hook-and-ladder truck.[2]
