A high-quality white gold model that retains the full flat body of the Autoboy Luna series (first marketed in October 1994). A compact, full-automatic zoom 35mm camera with autofocusing and a wide 28-70 mm, f/5.6-7.8 zoom lens. The high-precision, Dual AIAF, three-point auto-focusing system adjusts the angle of the infrared focusing beams according to the focal length of the lens. The viewfinder features a transparent LCD panel that shows the focusing point, and clearly indicates the panorama frame or close-up frame as necessary. The Best Shot Dial (for selecting optimum shooting modes) is located on the camera back.
