I found this Pentax IQ Zoom EZY camera while doing some spring cleaning recently. Fortunately, I had stored it without a battery, and it looked clean (almost like new), and waiting for me to take it out for a spin. I suspect I picked this up quite a while ago when these sort of point and shoot film cameras were as cheap as chips, to borrow one of my favorite expressions from friends “across the pond.” A recent check on the large auction site shows that you can still get one of these for relatively little, but more than my bag of chips price from a few years ago.
I’m not sure how or when I first discovered the plastic White Slim Angel camera – but I think it was around 2009 or 2010. For those not familiar with this gem, it is a plastic point and shoot film camera, with a wide angle lens of 22mm, fixed at f/11 and 1/125. I didn’t learn until reading a post on 35mmc that the The White Slim Angel is essentially the resurrected / cloned version of the Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim.
