Meikai ID4396

We know that this was made by Ouyama / New Taiwan Photographic Corporation because there are very similar cameras labeled Ouyama Mango, and Quickshot Mango DI 4410.

It is extremely light and poorly made, the aperture of this one is not even on the central axis of the lens, but it has one interesting feature which it shares with much more expensive cameras. The shutter cannot be operated if there is no film in the camera. The small aperture would require the use of 400 ISO film for flash.

It demonstrates that some (at least ) of the 'newMeikai were made by NTPC. For more information on the Meikai brand see Meikai AW-4366.
