Another thrift shop find. Mine has a broken battery door.

An okay little camera. One of about 10,000 35mm point-n-shoots made in the 90s. It's got auto-load, advance and rewind. It's got an permanent 35-105mm zoom. It's got +-3 EV exposure compensation. Built-in zoom flash. Shutter's between 1/3rd second to 1/250th. Not bad.

Now for the bad news: a mediocre ƒ/4 to ƒ/7.8 aperture, and the viewfinder has 87% coverage. That's awful.
