Photo Champ

This camera has definitely got a fightin’ chance as a contender for the title of coolest plastic camera. Manufactured in the U.S. by Cardinal Corporation, it’s got the same bloodlines as the Buckeye Camera. The Photo Champ gives 16 exposures on 127 film. Keep in mind, the shutter actuates on both the down and up movement of the lever.

It probably could’ve performed better if it had a more skilled manager. The Photo Champ floats like a butterfly and stings like a … like a … like something that doesn’t sting very hard. Still, it’s sporty and ready to execute the hell out of some moves.


C’mon champ!
