Novelty Tuna-Shaped Film Camera

This is probably not the most ergonomic camera body, but it puts fisheye into a whole different context.

Back in 1971, StarKist tuna sold promotional cameras in the shape of StarKist mascot Charlie the Tuna for $4.95 and three StarKist can labels. The camera, manufactured by Whitehouse Products, takes 126 cartridge film and accepts flashcubes on top of its head.

If you’re a collector, KEH Camera is selling a used Charlie Tuna camera for $79.
