The Photon 120 is a camera that was manufactured in Hong Kong between 1958 and 1960.
At the time, it was a brand new model of plastic camera with synchro, and the flash worked without a cord. It used 126 black and white film or 120 colour film. As the plastic lens was very sharp, you could enlarge the pictures up to 30*30 cm (12*12 inches).
As this camera model was made entirely of plastic, it was made for the general public, children and adults alike.

Where to find it and at what price?
This device is not very common. You can easily find it on Ebay or on LeBonCoin for 10€. Personally, I got it at this price with the original box and instructions.
