The camera we are going to introduce for this time is "Picny". Although "Picny" here uses Vest-size film, other "Picny" uses 35mm film, and Bolta-size film. This means that this emplyed several kinds of film size under the same name of "Picny". In this regard, this camera is a kind of interesting, isn't it?
When looking at the camera itself, there's no telling it is easy to handle that focus has to be done manually, and its fastest shutter speed is at 1/100 sec. But on the other hand, the size of this camera is as small as a name card that it is not such a big deal to carry with.
The only problem for this is that, now, Vest-size film is not manufactured anymore except the Croatian-made B&W film, so obtaining it must be so hard. In addition, it is said that there's some device making Vest-size film out of 120 roll film.
Well then, let's take a look at it.
