The Perfect Shot

This double gauged, stainless steel "camera" holds 6 ounces of your favorite "film." The handy flask has a secure, screw-top closure, and the graphics of a vintage camera are printed on FDA food-grade, tear-free poly-paper. Warning: If focus becomes blurry after continued use, a tripod is recommended for stability. After four shots, something will most assuredly develop. Flask is made in China and hand-finished in the USA.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Kaycee Binns

In 1993, Kaycee Binns was waiting tables at a cafe and dreaming of how to follow her dreams of a career in metalsmithing. One day she was invited to a baby shower, and not having a gift to give, she decided to make one herself. Remembering a story her grandmother had told her as a little girl, Kaycee melted down some left over sterling silver and created a rabbit-themed baby spoon.

The spoon was such a hit that she decided to devote herself to her passion full time. Kaycee began creating, making, polishing and shipping her work all by herself, and though it was a lot to handle, her grandfather helped her not give up. Gradually, she began to gain momentum, and her enterprise grew. She still designs all her work herself, though, and all of it is still made in the USA, cast in Rhode Island and hand finished in Atlanta.

Kaycee lives in Atlanta with her husband and two children.

Comments about CAMERA FLASK:

Was a little disappointed in the overall look of the camera picture on the flask, it just looked lie a photocopy. Also, before I filled it up, it sounded loose and flimsy. It did make a great gift though and my friend was happy to have it.

Comments about CAMERA FLASK:

Bought this as a gift for a friend but didn't give it to him... if it had been meant as a gag gift I would have. Should have listened to the one reviewer who said its just a steel flask with a sticker on it. Also, it was difficult to open the top, and looked like it would be difficult to clean properly. I was not impressed, but since I paid for expressing shipping to get it in time I won't be returning it. Guess I'll keep it and use it as a white elephant gift sometime...very disappointing.

Delivery was as expected - arrived on time and in good condition.

    Fun gift with a nice design. There's a camera motif wrapped around the outside that looks quite nice in person.
    The only complaint is that it should come in a larger size.

    I have a friend who is a Photographer. He always wears this shirt "The Shooter".. I thought this would be perfect. Now he can be "the shooter" and actually do some shots! The graphics are awesome! I mean every detail... It is printed on some kind of vinyl I read but man it looks pretty real. He used it all night and not a scratch! bravo!!!!

          I was super excited when I saw this. I wanted to gift it to my friend who is a photographer. Unfortunately when I received it the "camera" is just a sticker wrapped around a stainless steel flask. It looks cheap. I can't give this to an artist. Too bad.

          Inexpensive surprise fun gift. I've bought a few similar products for people who have everything, don't need anything, or want anything, just something unique. Several small sample bottles of booze also comes with the gift.

          Maybe it's me but flasks seem outdated. The only reason to carry one is to drink and drive.

          Is it actually a camera?

          Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

          Thanks for the feedback, everyone! It's not actually a functional camera, but the artist did create the design using a photograph of a vintage camera. Also, it's definitely not intended for drinking and driving. Many folks collect unique flasks. They also come in handy if you're bringing a small amount of alcohol to a gathering to mix drinks and you don't want to carry a whole large bottle.

          This does not look like a modern camera. I think it is ugly and would never give this as a present.
