I don't have my own photo of it, but there may well still be an example of the wonderfully named Polaroid Super Swinger lurking in the attic:

As far as I recall, you set the exposure by squeezing and twisting the big red knob until the word 'YES' appears.
You just couldn't have made up anything better - squeeze and twist the big red knob until it goes "Yes" and it's called the Super Swinger...

Yes, a friend had one of those Samurais, and I was thinking of it with reference to this thread!

But were there any Avocado coloured cameras to go with the bathroom suite??
I think my "champagne" mju II is pretty much a lighter avocado colour... but that was much later than the 70s!

'It was the 70s!'
h'mm reminds me of my joke to my wife for about 50 years when I see her using a sewing m\c ..."I'm still waiting for you to alter my flares to straight".
Nah I still don't have them but it was a bit annoying for a few years as she said "when I get around to them" and gave up and threw good trousers away...end of my interesting story folks.o_O and back to cameras. :D

A D800. My other two are an x-e2 nickname the sexy 2 in japan and an rx100 which is also a looker IMO

The camera and the lenses are great but the design is really ugly, especially the charcoal colored body with the accessory flash on:

Ooh no that is nasty. :puke:

Some of the old Zenits and that were 'agricultural', but I don't think you can beat the late 80s for sheer nastiness. I'm looking at YOU, Minolta...

But that thing there^ is a right minger and no mistake. Jesus.

Not mine, thankfully, pentax probably has the ugliest modern cameras... there are a few.

Sweet Jesus of Nazareth; that is truly an abomination. :grumpy: A mate of mine had a shell suit like that, back in the late 80s. At what point, did the 'designers' think that purple, green and orange was a winning combination??
