The Pentax Espio 115S (aka Espio 115V or IQZoom 115V) is one of the later models in this underrated line of compact point-and-shoot 35mm cameras. Compared to the earlier Espio cameras, the 115S is similarly easy to use and a bit more refined (it features a faster top shutter speed and other tweaks). 

This camera requires a CR123 battery (available as an option).

Condition notes
The camera was tested with a battery and film installed and all functions are working well (we didn't develop the film). We also verified its film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator. The camera is in excellent cosmetic condition (see photos).
