Let me explain my experience with this camera first.
In the beginning, this product has given me the impression that this idea is completely fresh out of the oven. Not only that it captures pictures like a regular camera, but it is also sleek, eco-friendly and aesthetic, which is unlikely of DSLRs and other compact cameras. Although the strap given was kinda…. thin, I believe that I don’t have the need to strap it onto my camera but it’s always a good idea to provide customers with it. There’s also the microSD USB cable to transfer the photos onto your computer if you’re reluctant to eject the card out but meh, I’m the type who pulls it out. (wait this doesn’t sound right)
Focus on the camera: the shuttle button is a bit stiff so you would need to keep your hands firm while pressing the button. The lenses are easy to attach, detach and be kept but I’m not the type to use them too. (Wah, give you free stuff but don’t use, win liao lor) Ehhem. Anyway, the camera has like shockingly good resolutions and they take really good pictures but a few catches. You can’t tell exactly which angle it is capturing, just like Instax cameras. You also need a lot of light to keep the resolution high. Keep in mind that this isn’t a DSLR.
But overall, the experience with this camera is good. It’s a completely different level of fine-art. I would totally recommend this product especially for those who are seeking presents-to-gift that are unexpected, unique and one-of-a-kind.
Let’s move on to the product introduction.
Camera set includes: Washable paper strap, Camera board, JP Cypress case, Micro USB cable, Brass Fasteners, Fisheye Lens & Wide Angle Lens, and extra fasteners (plastic)。 A neck strap can be attached to the camera via the fasteners.
The camera has already been assembled when I received it. Not sure if you get to assemble the camera when you purchase it from the store. I actually like this design a lot because it’s so urban and modest. Whether or not I’m using the words rights, what I’m trying to say is that it fits my personality damn well. Besides, I have the same preference as my dad – nature & woody.
Front: Two screws, a hole, another hole with a lens, a shuttle button
Back: Two screws, four filters, two LEDs and another hole for the battery.
( Ignore the labelled wording, the correct one is [back, front] and [front, back])
Opening up the Case
Front: I’ve pretty much forgotten what are the components on the circuit board but some of the obvious ones are a camera lens and a compartment slot for the SD memory card.

Update: 2021-04-04: Oh my, who would’ve thought that paper shoot is popular once again! This blog post was originally on Blogger.com but I’ve migrated to my own domain later on. Wondering if I should write a new one…. hmmm….
