Ilford Harman EZ-35 "Kompaktkamera StartKit"
Harman Technologies, the company that manufactures Ilford-brand film, has announced the EZ-35 camera in what appears to be a nod to the days of film point-and-shoots.
The Harman EZ-35 looks similar to the classic disposable film camera but has a few features that make it superior. First, it is reusable which is not only more environmentally friendly but also allows the photographer to experiment with different types of 35mm film (though Harman recommends ISO 400 film). At purchase, the EZ-35 comes with a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus with 36 exposures.
The Harman is also motorized, which allows for automatic load, frame advance, and rewind functionality. The rest of the package is pretty basic, as it need not be particularly complicated. It features a “focus-free” 1 meter to infinity 31mm f/11 lens, a fixed 1/100s shutter, an over-the-lens viewfinder with 70% field of view, a built-in flash with a 15 second recycle time, and a lens cover that also acts as a shutter lock to prevent accidental exposures.
