Photon II

Wellington, NZ, 2012: Double exposures captured in camera on a twenty-dollar toy camera called the “Photon“. One of many versions of the now famous Diana, the Photon sports a “Superior” f/8 lens with only one shutter speed of 1/50th of a second.

The Photon seems to be one of the more obscure variants to be produced by the fantastically named “Great Wall Plastic Factory” of Kowloon, Hong Kong.
