This camera was made in Hong Kong, back in the late 50's and early 60's. I never heard of this camera before. But, when I was doing research about Lomo-type classic cameras, I stumbled across this one. A camera collector wrote a review about this camera and likened it to a metal Holga.
I was intrigued by that statement and tried to find out more about the Halina. Turns out that it had/has a pretty good reputation. About the only negative thing I could find out about it is that, after being around forty or so years, sometimes the adjustment rings on the lens can seize up.
I found this one on eBay at a very reasonable price. And, luckily, this camera's lens operated just fine. Now that I have it, I have to say that it is a very solid camera. With proper care, it should last a lifetime yet. I like it and am looking forward to seeing how it takes photos.
