Camera film compartment open.

This camera is easy to use. Autofocus is responsive and works well. Putting a film is easy as well, open the back, tear the film leader a bit further, drop the film and that's it. The camera spools the film automatically. As with most point and shoot ultra compacts, auto flash is set at start. There is no mid roll respool button.

The AF10 Super a good point and shoot camera. Sharp images, good autofocus, in a tiny little camera. When was released, it was one of the better models.
