Did you ever buy a camera just because of the name? Our Japanese friends seemed to have the knack of finding odd names for their products, at least in English speaking markets. There's a 35mm camera called the Three C's, and of course the mysterious Elbowflex TLR. Enter the Matahari 35, which arrived today for 10 quid plus postage from the auction site. It's quite a basic but solidly made viewfinder camera with a 4.5cm F.2.8 Tokinon lens, an un-named 5 speed shutter and a built in Selenium meter. The shutter release is angled on the front, Praktica style. Somewhat to my surprise everything seems to work, except the meter is way off. I don't know if the name infers it's use as a spy camera, but I did find a reference to a Matahari projector too. So, do you have a camera with a strange name?
