The Tacker, along with the Mycro, Vestkam, Rubina, Myracle, Kolt, Tone, Beauty and Midget, clearly demonstrates that Hit-type cameras were not necessarily designed to be toys.  These, and others, were intended to meet the demand for cameras after World War II in the Japanese market -- at a price that the average person could afford.  Even though these cameras were simply made, they were not inexpensive to buy for the average Japanese.  The Tacker appeared shortly after the war and was full of features.  It comes with a 20mm lens with apertures from f4.5-11.0.  Add in it's variable shutter speeds -- B, 1/25 - 1/100 -- and you have a flexible, versatile camera.
