Camera and original case.
camera is easy to use.
Autofocus is responsive and works well. Putting a film is easy as well,
you drop the film, tear the film leader up to the mark and that's it. The
camera winds it automatically. It has some manual settings if needed,
the menu is very easy to access via the dial. Max. aperture is not impressing, but it takes nice photos nevertheless.
a good point and shoot camera
with a wide angle zoom lens, honest picture quality, a nice
finish in a small pocketable body which is slightly bulky and a bit heavier than others. A nice find, it's not expensive at all.
