Unusual and exciting, the Bilora Bella is a 127 film camera. Has self-cocking shutter, die-cast aluminum body, focus from 1m-inifinity and two apertures, f8 and f11. Basically, those are cloudy and sunny settings. Shutter works great. Back feels loose even when locked in place, this could indicate that the light seals are worn out. If you're a lomography fan like me, you won't care. Light leaks are cool. If you mind some weirdness around the edges, this probably isn't the camera for you. Unless you want to replace the seals.
Other than the loose back, cosmetically she is beautiful. Included is the awesome grey vinyl carrying case. I love this thing. Sold as-is...I guarantee that the shutter fires, but I can't guarantee the body seal on this one. You can still buy 127 film from many reputable photo supply shops. Snap it up and go have an adventure.
