    For someone who doesn’t know a lot about cameras (as in me!) What makes this one stand out from the rest?

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      its got a crispy little lens that takes gorgeous photos and is one of those point and shoots that has a cult following especially in japan – much like the yashica.

  • charles law
