Vivitar V3800N film camera

Sakar has taken the unusual step of reissuing a film SLR, the Vivitar V3800N. The camera is meant to serve as a cheap, 35mm alternative to modern DSLRs, and uses a traditional focal-plane shutter. Features include a 10-second timer, shutter speeds ranging from 1 to 1/2000, and support for film rated between ISO 25 and 3200. Multiple exposures can be combined in-camera, and an X Contact hotshoe allows for the use of external flash.

Two main kits are being made available: one with a 50mm f/1.7 lens, and another with a 28-70mm f/3.4-4.8 option. On top of this is a third kit, including the 50mm lens alongside a bag, flash, UV filter and roll of black-and-white film. The basic 50mm kit costs approximately $170, while the 28-70mm bundle is $195. The cost of the third bundle has not been published.
