This is perhaps the most interesting instant camera ever made. It uses the same film as the Moment. This is a giant range finder camera. It has a non removable collapsible Industar-77 lens assembly with a leaf shutter and speeds of 125, 30 and B. The shutter is cocked by rotating the front portion of the lens. The Shutter release is a large black button on the side of the camera. There is a cable release socket on the camera body above the shutter release. The apertures are set by moving a square sliding button to the left of the viewfinder. The camera has both a hot shoe and a flash jack. It was unsuccessful for the same reasons as the Moment.
