I love photography.

I love the sea.

This is the camera for me.

Jettisoning my horrible haiku, this is a cool camera.

From the great photography blog PetaPixel:

Back in 1971, StarKist tuna sold promotional cameras in the shape of StarKist mascot Charlie the Tuna for $4.95 and three StarKist can labels. The camera, manufactured by Whitehouse Products, takes 126 cartridge film and accepts flashcubes on top of its head.

If you’re a collector, KEH Camera is selling a used Charlie Tuna camera for $79.

I’m hooked!

You’ll be surprised by what these litle fixed lens cameras can do. Some of the best pictures I’ve taken were captured by the 2 megapixel camera of my Nokia phone.

Too bad, Charlie the Tuna is no longer available at KEH Camera according to its website.
