    We went up to the Shenandoah mountains today, to the Shenandoah Caverns. On the way out, stopped at a flea market. I always am looking for cameras at them, but today came across this Made in Occupied Japan cigarette lighter. At first, thought it was based on the Leica- but then noticed the sides of the lighter. It's fashioned after the Canon III, a compass is in the position of the slow-speed dial and the rewind knob is a compartment for flints. The lens unscrews to fill up with fluid, the shutter release actuates the lighter.

    The Canon III shown is also MIOJ, originally came with a Nikkor-SC 5cm F1.5.
