Hanimex X101

This camera was a prize from a competition where you had to answer a question creatively in so many words. At the time I was using my Agfa Isolette I. It was won when I was in Grade 6 at Beaconsfield Upper Primary School during 1974.

It took 126 sized film (an easy to load version of 35mm film) and it came with a fixed focus lens. It used “magic cube” flash cubes. It was easy to use and handy for quick photos at parties but the photos weren’t very clear. From a photography point of view it was a step backwards from the Agfa Isolette.
