Advantages A small, light camera which is easy to use, and also gives you the chance to further your hobby.
Disadvantages There is no such thing as a cheap SLR.
It is a 35mm camera, so there’s no option of picture format and you will have to load the film. This simply means putting the film cassette in and pulling the film across to the red marker on the other side. On closing the door, the film is automatically fed in and the indicator on the LCD display (when the camera is switched on) informs you that the film has been loaded correctly.LENS
Picture-taking is simple with this camera, as when set to the normal mode (The camera is pre-set to this every time it is switched on), mostly everything is automatic. Just switch on the camera, remove the lens cap (no point taking pictures with it on!) point the camera at the subject (whilst looking through the view finder), roll the zoom barrel until you have the picture how you want it, press the shutter release button down half way and the cameras auto focus will focus in. If this can be done, a green light will appear in the view-finder when the image is in focus, if not the green light will blink. At this point the focus lock will prevent the camera from re-focusing when the camera is moved until the shutter release button is released or fully pressed, therefore enabling the image which is in focus to be to one side of the picture and not in the middle, if required. Should the auto-focus be unable to operate for one reason or another, a button on the front of the camera disables the auto-focus, leaving you to focus the picture manually. I have already used the manual focus (my subject was a rather fine grass seed head and the auto-focus kept on focusing on the fence beyond, as the seed head was too fine to be seen, and I can conclude that the manual focus is not all that difficult if very fine increments are used. On focusing your picture, fully depressing the shutter release button will take the picture.
