Picture Quality
Range & Quality of Features
Ease of Use


This fully automatic camera takes some of the best photos i have seen!
It has a 110mm. lens which you can set for telephoto or wide mode.
It is fully self focusing: just point and shoot!

The user can decide whether to use fully automatic capability or simply press the buttons for night mode,sports mode(high speed lens operation),portrait mode or scenery mode.

This camera has a built in flash(when looking through
the viewfinder,there is a signal to tell you that flash is required). It could not be easier!

The camera takes 35mm. film. in practice,i have found that it particularly likes 200 or 400 speed film.
I myself use fuji film,but any make of 35mm. film would be fine.

The buyer can also obtain a screw on lens that increases the lens size to 170 mm. to enable the user to take really long distance shots.

When i bought my camera, i was given the extra lens as part of the deal. This may still be the case. A great camera!! Get one!
I bought mine from jessops at a cost of £220.

The camera takes two CR 123A lithium cells that seem to last quite well ( i have used the camera on holiday for a week and used three rolls of 36 exposure film in daylight and with
flash and only used the battery cells in the camera).

When i bought my camera, it came with the extension lens as previously mentioned plus a camera case, lens case, two CR 123A lithium cells, comprehensive and easy to understand instructions. I even got a free lens cleaning cloth!!!

A highly recommended piece of photographic equipment.

    Crikey! This looks like a serious bit of camera. I'm all digital these days, or I would consider something like this. Good review! - J

    That seems like this camera works like the old SLR's but with new tech bolted on. I had an Olympus years ago glad to see they are still in the premiership. Good review, thanx.
