Let me start by saying, this is a perfectly good camera. The example photos I have seen from this camera are perfectly fine. It looked like a great point-and-shoot.
It had a cover for the lens, it was clean, and it took a common type of battery. Unfortunately, there was no switch to turn the flash off, it was fully automatic. Perfectly fine.
- Plastic-bodied camera with a fixed 34mm lens
- Infrared autofocus.
- Built-in auto flash with manual ‘Fill-In’ switch
- Motor wind and rewind (rewind by the flick of a switch on the bottom)
- DX coding (100 and 400 ASA)
- Takes 2x AA batteries
I also found this thread that said the camera was very much like the Nikon AF200, if that is true then this camera probably has a fixed speed of 1/130th and apertures of f4.5 or f9 with autofocusing.
None of that information can be guaranteed without other sources or a manual and I am not willing to invest in one.
I do keep a notebook when using a camera and all I wrote for this one was, “This camera gives me the ick.” It really does, I don’t know why, but I really don’t like it. As a consequence, it took me ages to get through the one film I loaded into it, so long that I nearly took it out and put it in another camera. The film I loaded was an Agfa 200, one of the last ones I have, hence my wanting to change cameras.
I stuck with it though and eventually managed to finish it before sending it to photohippo. Here are my results…
Taken while I was volunteering for the rugby world cup this year and finished on a walk. Mediocre photos from a perfectly fine camera which I have already sold.
