The Glico lighter camera is a Japanese subminiature shaped as a lighter, taking 14×14mm pictures on 17.5mm paper backed rollfilm. It is only known from a single example, pictured in Sugiyama.[1]

Description Edit

The camera has the shape of an ordinary throw-away lighter, but is not functional as such. The top of the ligther is replaced by an eye-level viewfinder. The film is advanced by a small knob on the photographer's left. The shutter is tripped by a button on the right, near the bottom. There is a small selector on the same side, switching between Bulb and Instant exposures. The lens has a fixed focus and aperture, and has no marking.

Origin Edit

It is said that the Glico lighter camera was offered by the company Ezaki Glico, certainly together with some of its confectionery products.[1] The date is given as 1962 in Sugiyama, but this is unconfirmed.[1]

Notes Edit
