    I just bought this camera at a garage sale for $1, figuring I'd use it as a car camera. I'd never heard of it and it featured a broken rewind crank, a cracked meter prism, and corroded battery contacts. But once I got it home and started running a test roll of ancient expired Kroger brand film through it, it started to grow on me. It runs on 2 AAA batteries, is auto-loading, has a fast f/2.8 wide-angle lens, with IR autofocus that seems to work, a pop-up flash with a under-exposure warning beep to remind you to pop it up, and easily-adjustable film speed slider under the lens for tweaking exposure.

    All in all, a pretty nice P&S as P&S go. Anyone ever run slide film through one?
