The FPP branded medium format “fixed focus” camera with lens producing a soft-focus image with full double-exposure capability and intense vignetting. Known for light leaks and other fun film possibilities!
Despite a few similarities, it is not the same as the "Debonair" Diana or the Imperial Debonair from Chicago’s Herbert George Camera Company. Nope, not a Diana, not a Holga but a strange hybrid manufactured in a mysterious, unknown factory in Hong Kong!
The Plastic Filmtastic 120 Debonair takes 120 roll film. You’ll get 16 - 6×4.5 cm wonderful, dreamy images per roll! The red window on the back of the camera counts off 16 exposures as you manually roll to your next shot.
The lens barrel is molded with focusing icons (one person – group shot – mountains) and the f8 60mm plastic “Super Lens” has a sunny/cloudy switch. Shutter is fixed at approximately 1/100th sec.
Double exposures are easy by just clicking off the shutter to your heart’s content!
On top of the camera is a “hot shoe” for your favorite flash or consider adding the awesome FPP 50M Electronic Flash (available but not included).
100 or 200 iso film recommended for direct sunlight / flash and 400 iso film recommended for overcast days.

Photographer Mark O'Brien says:
"Overall, I like this camera a lot better than the old Diana, and it seems to be better constructed than the Holga, too. The rectangular 6x4.5 cm frame is fine, and it is easy to hold the camera and shoot in landscape mode."
