This is one of the many ultra cheap "panoramic" cameras that produce wide format images by masking down the film plane. Many of the cameras are switchable between normal and panoramic, but this one is panoramic only. Week 335 starts at the end of my trip to Bilbao, so this one will be coming on the trip too.
This neat little APS cameras was 50p in a car boot sale. I already have one which I bought from a charity shop for £2, but that one was dead when I got it home. This one seems to work, so I'll be taking it with me on a trip to Bilbao, loaded with expired Agfa ISO 200 colour negative film.

The FM2 is a well built 35mm SLR which was produced from 1982-2001. It has shutter speeds up to 1/4000th sec, and although it has a built in coupled exposure meter, everything apart from this still functions without a battery, which could be very useful.

This is basically an eye level box camera, it takes 127 film, which is now available again having more or less died out in 2012. This is a very simple camera, with fixed focus, fixed aperture and single shutter speed. It has double exposure prevention, but that is the only feature above the bare bones. I've loaded it with a roll of Efke 100 black and white film.

This week includes "World Pinhole Photography Day" (WPPD) which falls on the last Sunday of April each year, so I decided this was a good time to load up this camera, which I got from a charity shop a couple of years ago. As well as the pinhole, this version also has a plastic bi-convex lens, two apertures and a spring loaded shutter for short exposures.
