I still had this once loved little object of desire. I had owned several and then sold them on. Stupid boy! This one remained because, although it worked fine, it was too shabby to be flogged on eBay.
It was 2012 when I wrote this book all about the Vivitar UWS ... a lightweight plastic box with absolutely zero gadgetry.
It was cheap and had an incredibly wide 22mm lens. It was fun and the results were unpredictable.
I had kept the book on file so copied a few pages to share here. When I have finished drafting this post I shall head on over to eBay to see how much a cassette of 35mm film will cost.
