The Accord AW 1000D is a very basic compact camera. I got it for next to nothing in a thrift shop, so I tested it nevertheless. There is no information about this camera. The company made other cameras, an AF 1000 and 2000 model, as well as even simpler models.

The main features of the camera are:

34mm F3.5 focus-free lens, min. focus 1.3m
Camera flash indication in the viewerfinder window
Shutter speed: single,  1/125
Size 125x70x47,  Weight 205 gr. batteries included
Limited DX code for ISO 100 - 400 (only 2 contacts), auto wind and rewind, AE, flash auto data back.

This camera is incredibly basic. You slide it open and push the shutter, that's all. There are no features. All is automatic. The camera has a fixed focus lens. No slow shutter speeds for night photos. Automatic re-spooling and auto wind between the photos. Point and shoot as basic as possible.
