Notes:The biggest claim to fame for this little Auto Focus camera was the inclution of it's voice chip that gave you helpful hints along the way like "turn on flash" "load film" etc! Cameras spoke either English ot Japanese unless you had a camera with the data back option they were bilingual and spoke both languages ☺. Interestingly in English there are no please & thanksyous but in Japanese there are! The camera has a fast 2.8 lens and take good photos but it also tends to underexpose (not just this camera). For this reason I've taken to overexposing by 1 stop using the ISO setting (shooting 400 at 200 etc.)
