It took a while to find, but eventually, I found a source to say this camera was produced in 1999. I saw it in a Facebook group for APS film users and wanted it straight away. It is just so cool looking. So I looked on eBay and there was this example. Mine.
I love how it snaps open and closed, which also turns it on. It is well built and the metal material is lovely to hold. The flash is the only thing I don’t like. It turns on in auto red-eye mode, no matter what you set it to before you turn it off. It is tiny when closed and will easily fit in a pocket.
There are so many technical details here that I won’t even bother to try and match it. There are even more details here, including a description of the super focusing system.
Walking around my local area, it worked perfectly. But the truth is in the tasting…or in the photos. Of course, I used an expired film, a colorama. Finally, it was processed and scanned perfectly.
I used this film on a walk/buggy with my father. This is the second aps film where I noticed the camera strap in the shots. I have been careless recently, but now I know I will correct the issue in the future.

Looks like it did quite well. The Heritage Trail looks great in the summer sun.
