Ilford Sprite vintage roll film camera in good condition and fully working. Comes with an eveready case. 

 

 

The Sprite 127 is of simple grey plastic construction, with a single snapshot shutter speed and a single element plastic meniscus lens with 2 apertures, adjustable via a sliding lever below the lens. The apertures are probably around f16 (for faster speed monochrome film) and f11 (for slower colour film). The sliding lever is correspondingly marked ‘Colour’ & ‘B & W’. The camera provided 12 square negatives 4x4cm on 127 roll film. The film is wound on manually, using the top mounted knob, and centred to each new picture area by aligning the appropriate number in the rear red window. The longitudinal film path is curved, this both provides a pleasantly curved shape to the camera body while also providing a means of ‘correcting’ curvature of field from the simple lens, in one dimension at least.
