This is a very basic compact camera, probably not an ultra compact one. I got it for next to nothing on a flea market, so I tested it nevertheless. There is nearly no information about this camera. It's from the 1990s and has no features.

This camera is incredibly basic. You slide it open and push the shutter, that's all. There are no features except forcing flash in backlight situations. All the rest is all automatic. The camera indicates focus range and flash in the viewer. The lens doesn't move and you don't hear the focussing. But it gets everything right. Point and shoot as basic as possible.
