This is a very basic compact camera, probably not an ultra compact one. It was given to me, so I tested it nevertheless. There is a bit information about this camera, obviously it was marketed by Photo Porst in Germany.. It's from the 1990s and has no features except 2 focal settings.

This camera is incredibly basic. You push the shutter, that's all. You can set the camera from 35 to 55mm focal length. Otherwise there are no features. All the rest is all automatic, except flash. The camera indicates the need of a flash next to the viewer if you half press the shutter. Point and shoot as basic as possible.
