Olympus, Quick Flash AFL, Rimelig
Olympus Quick Flash AFL Point and Shoot Camera ZUIKO 38mm f/2.8 Lens Like the one used by Andy Warhol "The Olympus AFL Quick Flash series of 35mm compact cameras were some of the first mass-produced autofocus cameras manufactured by Olympus and were so advanced for their time that they were priced almost as highly as SLRs." -Camera Wiki This specific one was the first released of the series in 1984 codename "Picasso" and features a flash that can recharge in 1.5 seconds and is one of the first cameras with a "non-repleaceable" lithium battery. The Olympus centers used to service them and replace the lithium batteries, but of course that service is not available anymore. However there are people that "hack" the cameras and install fresh BR-2/3 A batteries in them and make them work. This is totally up to the new owner, please note the camera is not working in this moment. The camera features a 38mm f/2.8 lens that takes sharp images with wonderful tones, the very same Andy Warhol (who always carried a camera) used to have one of these since the flash was always ready for action. Features: Autofocus. Automatic exposure. Quickly recharging flash (1.5 seconds). Shutter speeds from 1/8-1/500s. Self-timer. Tripod socket.
