The most notable thing about this camera,from a collector point of view, and besides the new built in flash, was that when it was introduced it was a favorite of Andy Warhol the avant-guard artist who gave us big paintings of Cambell Soup cans. He is reported to have had three of them and took them everywhere. Just saw a mention that 130,000 of his negatives that have never been seen before will be available to people interested.

Got my latest for $10 plus shipping. Surprisingly everything worked .....and whoever sold it to me had fresh batteries in it. It even came with a never ready case.
I tried it out this afternoon. It seems to work just fine for what it is. I like the fill flash and the indications in the viewfinder for range group I set and the aperture approximation the camera seems to set. One thing I couldn't figure was.... that although the flash could be turned on and off the light meter couldn't. The online manual only suggests that you should change that battery once a year. I would seem that if you could cap the lens it would last a lot longer. And... since I have a lot of lens caps it wasn't hard to appropriate one.
If you have read about my photo adventures I know you have seen these same subjects I offer as examples before. I like to compare one camera's results with another on the same subjects.
