Autofocus is responsive and works well. Putting a film is easy as
well, open the back, tear the film leader a bit further, drop the
film and that's it. The
camera spools the film automatically. As with most point and shoot
ultra compacts, auto
flash is set at start. There is no mid roll respool button.

in a tiny little camera. When was released, it was one of the better models.
