The interface with electronic flash differs from the earlier models too. A guide number scale is seen on the top of the lens, set by rotating a ring.

No wonder people say: Worryingly, I had the distinct impression that the shutter had started sticking again when closing.

A teenage fascination with photography faded and was only rekindled many years later in the era of auto everything, plastic film cameras.

Originally from Belfast in Northern Ireland I’m now a serial expat. For those who enjoy it the most, there are two ways you can throw a few pennies into the proverbial tip jar: I just bought one of these, resealed it and put in a new battery.
