Think of this not as a camera, but rather as some sort of obscure artifact from the age of plastic. This is the Fotron III, a bizarrely gigantic electric camera. It was also such a rip-off that a class action lawsuit was filed over the camera. The camera had been sold door to door by representatives of the Traid Corporation, at prices of $150 upwards (in 1960s money!). The camera was ridiculously overpriced, and even worse, would only work with a proprietary film cartridge that could only be sold and developed by the Traid Corporation.

So, what I'm saying, is don't buy this camera with the intent to actually use it. It doesn't work. There is no film cartridge, and the cord to charge the camera has been long lost. However, except for a little bit of sticker residue on the top of the camera, cosmetically, it's in great shape. It does still look pretty neat, in a kind of ominously plastic way. It's clearly the type of camera some sort of evil 1960s overlord would use.

A manual for this camera is available online here: http://www.butkus.org/chinon/fotron/fotron.htm
