is a so-called Focus Free or Toy Camera, a simple plastic camera. The
Braun company, founded in 1915, has once made high quality cameras. The

market by the end of the 80s. This model is said to be from 2000, it's
quite common and exists in multiple colours, without the "fun" name it
also was made in silver. The transparent version is rare.

the ultimate basics of a camera, focus free, single shutter speed
and fixed aperture. Point and shoot only. If you choose the right
film, ISO 400 in general and ISO 200 on very sunny days, you can shoot
outside photos that look o.k.. The rest will be "Lomo" style,
can use flash for interior photos. This camera is nice and funny.
