During the restructuring of the website I've discovered
that there was no write up here so I'll address that issue now. Maybe I
was just stuck for words or maybe I was speechless but that's a couple of
possibilities that this camera evoked. By appearance this would seem to be
no more than an average plastic camera which you can pick up in any
charity shop for a couple of pounds and in fact that is exactly the case.
All I can say is if you get the chance then pick it up, pay you dues and
get out there with it. I reckon any camera that can make Reading town
centre look photogenic is pretty special and this one achieved just that.
It is a motor driven, auto focus, DX coded point and shoot camera and
that's all you can do with it, just point and shoot. But wait till the
results come back and you can look in awe at the results. I have a Yashica
T* from the same era which is similar in appearance and I've yet to use
but I doubt it will perform better.
