Baltika-3 Beer Can Camera


For me this camera represents both of best worlds - combining a photo camera with beer drinking - what could be better?

This camera was made as a part of advertising campaign for Russian Baltika-3 beer.

According to Viktor Suglob around 170 of these cameras were made and are in fact very collectible. My personal belief is that the actual camera was probably manufactured in China, but I could not find any sign of that origin neither on the box or on the camera itself. Nevertheless it is part of Russian camera history abeit a recent one, since the box and the camera has cyrillic writing.
