The Cheap Camera with the Expensive Name – Quickshot X3000

Sharing is caring!

I’ve had this plastic, piece of crap, toy camera laying around for years. I don’t even remember where I got it, but it was in a box, on a dresser, on a shelf, in a box again, back on my shelf again, and then in my hands with film in it.

It’s the Quickshot X3000 and it boasts a “NEW OPTICAL LENS,” in all caps, on the front of the lens, so it HAS to be good. Curiosity made me shove a roll of 35mm film in it and take it along on a photo walk. Or maybe it was the name that grabbed me…X3000…sounds like something out of Star Trek. It is not.

This is a toy, Quickshot X3000 film camera that rattles when you shake it and doesn’t sound like it works…but it does…ish.

It rattles when I shake it, makes almost no sound when I push the shutter, and I had no reason to think it worked…but I took it out, anyway. I don’t remember what kind of film I shot, but probably 400 T-Max, as I walked around the West Bottoms with a group of friends. 

After about ten shots, or so, I gave up. “There’s NO WAY this thing works,” I thought.

Well…ummm…it did. I got my partially shot roll back and was oddly and pleasantly surprised by the results. So pleasantly surprised that the idea came to me that I need to play with other toy cameras and see what I get.

BONUS: Light leak!

I just did a quick check and you can get these CHEAP on eBay. I just saw one with owner’s manual for ten bucks. 

Here is the gallery of shots from the Quickshot X3000.
