The Voigtländer Brillant 2x Zoom a simple mid-range 35mm film camera.
There is little information about this camera, the same camera was also
marketed as Braun Trend 60 Zoom with little information either. It was
probably released in the late 90s when the digital market was not
coming up yet.
It has a wide angle zoom that covers 28-56mm. The "Brillant" name
initially stood for a famous 6x6 Twin Lens Reflex Camera. There is
another series of modern 35mm Point and Shoot cameras called Brillant
AF with various bodies, but without Zoom.

camera is easy to use.
Autofocus is not confirmed, but 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 settings if needed,
the menu is very easy to access on a clear LCD screen.
a point and shoot camera
with a wide angle zoom lens. It sets the flash on from
start, but has a flash off mode. It sets the flash again after each photo which is annoying. Nevertheless a
nice camera, easy point and shoot with wide angle zoom.
