    Here is an other model, perhaps the latest (the third ?).
    All plastic, with integrated lens cover, screw in filters and 6v. lithium battery.
    The lens is "macro" but I don't know the minimal distance because I haven't yet tried the camera... Nikon_One-Touch.jpg

    This brings back a lot of memories. I remember selling a lot of those Nikons along with the Canons, etc., back in the early to mid 80s.

    Always refreshing to read an analysis that doesn't simply praise the camera, but points out negative aspects experienced with the camera.

    Never heard of that kit, looks neat. I need something like that like I need a hole in the head, but it looks like a real travel kit system for the serious but space constricted film traveller.

    Any links, or is it so old, the link is like a missing link?

    Mick.

    Mick,
    It is probably pretty old. I got it from Dante Stella when he placed an ad here or on RFF. It is a bit cheesy at best! The photo of the bush was taken without either of those ad on's.

    Out riding in the desert a little over a week ago. Camera with me was the l35af loaded with TriX and a yellow filter screwed on the front. Can't beat the performance of this little cheap camera. AA's easy to find/buy at any gas station, the ability to use proper filters, a 1.5 stop exposure adjustment tab, and a sharp lens semi-fast f2.8 35mm lens all in a compact, mostly metal package. What more do you need?
