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

    • 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

    hey what camera would you actually recommend as an awesome point and shoot.

  • digital or film?

    • charles

    Look interesting!

  • hey hello, just receive the camera. I bought ot from price minister. i just have some question. Is that normal if when the camera is on “off” i still have the screen light on and can change the flash ?

  • haha ok, just hope it will not eat all the battery in two days.
