Week 205 - Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim

This simple plastic camera has something of a cult following, with its 22mm lens is it wider than most other simple plastic models. The price peaked a couple of years ago, with some selling for more than £50 on eBay. Since then a clone the "Slim Devil" has been introduced, and although it is expensive for what it is, it has eased demand, and therefore prices for the original "Viv".
I paid 50p for mine, and have put several films through it, but it has never been my camera of the week. With the weak December light in mind, I've loaded it with some ISO800 film.
