  3. Oh, that's not so ugly.....In general, I think the ugliest cameras are those
    that are excessively large for the format. And then, it occurred to me that
    my F5 would definitely qualify, since it weighs 2-1/2 pounds and is only 35
    mm! - So, I have to retract that....:^)

  4. I know I will be laughed at with this one, but it actually was a
    camera. Out of curiosity, I sent 10 Bazooka bubblegum wrappers plus 50
    cents to the Bazooka Company and many many weeks later, I received the
    cheapest, ugliest camera I ever laid eyes on. It was made from the
    cheapest plastic that could be found. The lens was plastic. You
    would be lucky if it lasted a couple of weeks. It did take
    pics.......horribly though. I still have it somewhere in the house.
    What else could I expect for 50 cents. LOL.

  8. I wish it could be given such a cult following name, but it isn't. I
    believe the name on the camera was Sunburst or Sunpak. I have to dig
    it up to find out. Thanks, though.
