This camera from 1993 was a cheap charity shop purchase. I had a feeling I had tried an example before, but checking my camera post list didn’t reveal it. You can find all the technical details you require here and a manual here.

It is big and bulky, with a limited aperture selection of f4.5-7.8, but I liked it straight away. The zoom isn’t much to talk about and I ended up leaving it on 38mm for most of the shots. It is comfortable to hold despite the bulk. You can turn the flash off, but it resets once you turn it off and on again. Best of all you have a choice of battery options.
