    I think I had the rangefinder version of this camera!

    It does look like a pretty good match! Looking at it though, it doesn't ring any bells for me. I hope I would still recognise it all these years later, but who knows. I wasn't "into" photography back then - I just had this camera for holidays.

    I'm pretty sure that the camera I had wasn't badged as Hanimex - do you know if this model was sold under other brands too?

    Maybe I'll selectively rewrite history, and claim I owned this camera. Thanks for your help searching

    Yep, same camera. Vivitar and Hanimex often shared products - each marketing in different parts of the world. In fact, I think I saw the Vivitar version just a few days ago at a local thrift. There were loads of big viewfinder point and shoot cameras in the 90s. Minolta had one too.

    I also saw one of these for $3: Jeva 35 Twist Zoom. I'd have bought it except that it was chipped under the viewfinder. Cheap quirky camera. Right up my alley.
