This is a so-called Focus Free or Toy Camera, a simple plastic camera.
It's quite common and obviously robust, as there are still quite some
around for second hand sale. I has a flash and motorized film wind.
main features are:
angle plastic lens, focus free
Double Exposure Prevention, flash, lens protection slider, motorized film
Size 123 x 70 x 45, Weight 190 gr.
(240 with batteries)
Camera front closed.
Camera open. CdS cell next to the finder. Flash slider above the lens.
Camera back. Viewer
with flash ready lamp. Film type window, not so common on these cameras.
Camera top. Film counter and shutter release. Rewind
switch, rewind is not automatic.
Camera bottom. Battery compartment.
Takes 2 AA batteries.
the ultimate basics of a camera, focus free, single shutter speed and
fixed aperture. Point and shoot only. Film wind is not completely
automatic when you put a film. So pull the film leader to the end of the
compartment, there is a little mark. Close the camera and push the shutter
release twice. Now you are ready. It winds automatically between the
photos. There is a switch for respooling that has to be held until the
film is completely rewound.
If you choose the right film, ISO 400 in general and ISO 200 on very sunny
days, you can shoot outside photos that look OK. The rest will be "Lomo"
but you can use flash for interior photos.
