ILFORD Sprite 35-II Camera (Black & Silver)
The Ilford Sprite 35-II is a fun and affordable way to jump into analogue photography!
There are plenty of good reasons why some love the authentic look and feel of film-generated photographs; there’s also the discipline of having only 24 or 36 exposures to work with, and the anticipation of having a roll developed. Then there’s the desire to slow down from the relentless pace of digital technology and instant gratification.
Back in the 1960s, few cameras were easier to use and more affordable than the Sprite 35. Forget shutter speeds, aperture, or light meters – just load a roll of film, hit the shutter button, and press the film lever. It was an attractive camera for people who wanted to capture a few snaps without fussing about the right settings.
The Ilford Sprite 35-II continues that heritage and will meet the needs of people experimenting with 35mm film and looking for a camera that’s ‘no frills’ simple. It’s a step up from disposable cameras, and being re-usable, it won’t create extra waste.
The camera has a fixed shutter speed (1/120s) with a 31mm, single element f9 fixed-focus wide-angle lens, perfect for capturing most well-focused daylight scenes, and also features a built-in flash with a 15-second recycle time for night time shooting. It also has a manual film advance winding lever to move through each exposure and rewind the roll when the film is finished.
The camera is extremely lightweight and compact, weighing just 122 grams (0.27 pounds), with dimensions of 4.69 in. (W) x 2.64 in. (H) x 1.73 in. (D).
