A compact 35mm camera equipped with 38-55mm 2.2x zoom lens which includes an aspherical lens element to deliver high contrast and sharp images throughout the entire zoom range. An advanced 3-point AiAF autofocus system also ensures outstanding results, even when the main subject is not located in the center of the frame. Other features include an RT (Real Time) release mode, which enables users to capture the decisive moment in any shooting situation, as well as standard and panorama (Japanese model only, with date imprint) picture formats while shooting on the same roll of film. A Mode Dial located on the top of the camera puts all of the operation functions, including the OFF switch and six different shooting modes, at the user’s fingertips. The camera has a stylish thin, flat-body design.
