Manufactured about 1998 by Ginfax Development Ltd. of Hong Kong. Collapsed, it looks like a can of Coca Cola. Opened up, it’s a 35mm point-n-shoot camera! It has a built in flash that runs from a single AA battery kept in a compartment in the bottom of the can camera. The top of the can is used to wind and rewind the film—the rewind latch is the pull top and releases the film to be rewound. The camera was originally packaged with a 24 exposure roll of Kodak 400 Max film. Item # 861274 Coca Cola Can Camera new sold for $19.99 and came with an Ansco 3 Year limited warranty. Hong Kong business bought the rights to the Ansco name in the 1990s and this accounts for the use of the name in the 3 year warranty information on the back of the packaging for the cameras.
Ginfax Development Ltd. is a producer of electronic gadgets and optical goods including novelty toy cameras, single-use cameras, and even simple digicams. It was founded in 1990 in Hong Kong and has factories in Dong Guan and Kai Ping, China. Items from Ginfax seem to have been marketed under the British brand Zeon Tech for electronic gifts.
