Harman 35mm Film Camera - Reloadable
The camera is a fab little machine: a fast shutter (1/120s) and a mid-range aperture (f/10) means that most subjects from 1m-infinity will be in focus from the wide-angle (31mm) lens.
The flash is powered by AAA battery for fast recharge and long-life (battery included) and your camera comes with two Kentmere 400 35mm films to get you started straight out of the box.
A fantastic gift for a new film photographer to learn the basics of analogue photography, composition and exposure.
The film is able to be developed by all B&W labs.

...here's a selection from my first use of Kentmere 400 in the Harman camera.
I'm impressed with the film - grain is OK for a 400ASA emulsion and it's 'scanner friendly' - no curling !
The film was dev'd in Rodinal at 1+25 for 7.5 minutes and minimal post-processing with PhotoScape X
This camera is not too bad considering the price. You pay for what you get for, so the the image quality is not very sharp, but it’s a good camera for someone to get into film or just to keep in your jacket pocket.
I wish the camera came with a lens cap of some description. The film is very easy to load, however it feels like you're gonna break the film when rewinding, so be VERY gentle.
Flash works relatively good at night too.
All in all, pretty decent for £30 and 2 rolls of film.
I'm torn over this camera. Optically it's one element lens is surprisingly good and better than any disposable I've used and the new Yashica MF-1 but the camera otherwise is a bit dull looking and winding/rewinding it is bloody scary. To say it is tight is an under statement - think buttock clutching worry that either the camera is gonna explode or the film will snap. I had to break out the cutlery to depress the rewind button (and that's no joke).
Optically images are a little soft but better than any disposable I've used. it even manages the trick of being okay at distances (slightly softer) which most disposable class cameras suck at.
Sample shots on XP2 not the boxed Kentmere.
This camera broke after using once. The first film I used wasn't rolled back properly, by fault of the camera, and completely ruined all of my pictures. Additionally, the second time around I tried to use it, the button used to take a picture froze up as well as the rewind button. Cheap piece of plastic and from the looks of sample pictures, they aren't very good quality either. Don't waste your money.
my niece is very happy with it
