Vintage MEIKAI EL camera

I do no know whether this camera is working or not.(never tested).But it is great for a gift or keep as a display item.

Meikai EL, introduced in 1963, by Togodo. Togodo was a minor japanese camera manufacturer, and this camera was not arrived so many on the market.

This camera has 50mm lens, and the aperture setting is a three-step ring (for bright light, medium light, poor light indicated by pictographs on the ring). Both side of the viewfinder window on the front is not the exposure meter window but just the decoration.
For this camera was targeted at the youth, the price of this was set low and sold at not camera shops but toy shops or stationaery stores.
Whatever the quality of this was, this is one of the most rare camera for now.
