I like this camera, I also like 'old-tech' and it amazes me that camera's worth next to nothing today cost a lot only a few years ago, I guess this reflects the throw away world we live in. I digress. I was given this camera with a jammed zoom lens and found it easy to fix but if you do take apart be-careful of the flash's capacitor because if your pinkies touch the contacts you will be uttering words some may never have heard of before. I put a very small (I mean small) drop of oil on the gear mech and since I have worked on it (about 2011-ish) its worked a treat. I used to go places where photography was banned but the vehicles and kit was historic, certainly now... and a small camera was very handy. A quick click and I had a photo and a quick look to see if any one was watching. I liked the results, obviously the photo's where no match for my other fleet of camera's but as a useful adjutant to them its been a brilliant little camera. Worth playing with and I guess if you want one its not going to break any bank balances...
