Another thrift shop find. Mine has a broken battery door (should be obvious from the electrical tape covering it).

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; a permanent 35-105mm zoom; +-3 EV exposure compensation; and 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.
