The cheaper Snappy 20 came out two months after its more expensive Snappy 50 sibling. This fully automatic 35mm compact camera has a 35mm f/4.5 lens (4 elements in 4 groups) and fixed focusing. It came in black, red, yellow, white, and blue. The camera was 10 g lighter and 5,000 yen cheaper than the Snappy 50.
