First of all, hello everybody. This is my very first post :)
I'm wondering if anyone could tell from what year this old basic camera is.
I've tried and tried to find something online about it but it seems to be a pretty obscure model.

Seems to be from the mid 70's or early 80's. The text on the o-ring nameplate is kind of funny, "FIRST-CAMERA". I guess they were pretty proud!56.42.jpeg6.42.jpeg

I think it's fairly recent, they never actually stopped making cheap 35mm cameras.

By fairly recent, you mean probably from the 90's?
There's absolutely nothing online about it.
One thing i can see is that the lowest aperture is F5.6. Then it widens to some unknown value when i set it for cloudy\darks shots. Shutter speed is unknown but i bet it is slow.

I get it that it is remarkably basic and mostly uninteresting, but the lack of info actually caught my eye.
It's also incredibly small which is interesting. Almost as small as a Canon IXUS APS point and shoot camera.
