The historic Fotron Electronic Film Camera was manufactured in Glendale, California by the Traid Corporation and sold door-to-door during the 1960s, making this a collectible in the marketing and advertising fields. The Fotron was aimed primarily at women and marketed as a simpler alternative to the complicated traditional cameras.
The Fotron has a number of innovative features (for the time), including a built-in electronic flash, rechargeable battery, motorized film advance, and push-button exposure control. It uses standard 828 roll-film packaged in a proprietary snap-in cartridge. However, due to its high price and the film had to be returned to the manufacturer for processing, the Fotron did not gain much popularity. Thus, this camera and case is very hard to find in this condition and a highly sought after camera collectible.
Includes: Original Fotron Camera, Original Leather Camera Bag lined with green felt (leather is made of Del Mar Hide by A.K. Salz Tannery), Original Manual, and Charging Cable all in good cosmetic condition, the leather bag shows some wear and a scuff or two. All levers, buttons, and knobs react normally and the unit displays a charging light when plugged in - no other testing performed. This unique camera kit is used, sold as a collectible, as is, as shown.
