The Ultrafine M100 35mm Flash Camera is a easy and fun to use. The front of the camera notes that the 28mm Lens is "Made in Japan" and we were happy with the Point n Shoot quality as we ran this camera through the paces. The sliding Lens Cover also servres as the shutter button enabler and protects the lens when not in use. There is an on/off switch for the flash as well. The flash works on one AA Battery and it usually takes around 14 seconds for the flash ready button to start flashing once it gets warmed up but the flash seems to respond a little quicker than that. Manual wind and rewind.
