I apologize very much.

This camera appears to have been released in the mid-1990s.

Kyocera merged with Yashica to form
Kyocera brand and Yashica brand, as well as Contax.

There were many attractive lineups.
In 2005, the camera business was terminated.

This is a compact camera from a time when the

camera division was still going strong.

This camera is very popular.

There are not many of them on the used market.
This is your chance to get it!

Please get this camera!
and have a wonderful film camera life!
