Vivitar ECO35H

This is a VERY bottom of the barrel camera. Single element probably plastic lens (everything else is plastic). One aperture, one shutter speed, one button, one thumbwheel. Amazingly, it has a working hotshoe for flash.
When I went to the Transportation Museum yesterday I put in a roll of Walgreens ASA 400 prinbt film. I just HAD to see what this camera was capable, or not capable of, and I stretched its limits. Weather was mostly cloudy. The flash I used for fill flash in the shadows was a small weak one. As should be expected, that cheap lens did a lot of light flare off of highly lit areas of the image area, such as sky.
Let me say this, I do not recommend this thing as an everyday shooter.
