Kinetic is a brand that appears on a variety of inexpensive photo products manufactured in China. These include flashes, as well as simple focus-free cameras which might be categorized as trashcams. It is unclear whether Kinetic is the name of a manufacturer or merely of an importer.

Circumstantial evidence suggests Kinetic may have been involved in the distribution of the Time Magazine Camera, and its countless look-alike brethren. These are often marked as featuring a "Kinetic Optical Color Lens."

It is possible the Kinetic brand could originate with New Taiwan, who sell products under the Ouyama name (among many others).
