Week 280 - Hanimex Genie Motor
This cheap and cheerful camera has two lenses, one slightly wide and one slightly telephoto. A slider switches between the two by engaging a mirror in the light path. It purports to have a faux panorama format, but as far as I can make out, this simply masks the viewfinder, with no change at the film plane. It's possible that the film plane mask is broken, or it may be that if you used the panorama setting throughout, and told the processor, that you could order the 12" x 4" panoramic prints.
