Cosina CX-1

I bought this little film camera to bring on travels and trips. It's compact and fits nicely in a pocket and did take some fine photos even though it wasn't exactly high end in any way, athough the mechanical quality is absolutely OK. The fun thing is that it has since gotten a cult following in the shape of the Lomo LC-A camera, which is almost an exact copy. I now see the Cosina mentioned as "vintage" and "collectible" and fetch some fairly good prices, but I think I'll hold on to mine anyway.
