The Vivitar PZ8000 is a quality zoom 35mm film point-and-shoot from the late 1990s. It features a sophisticated zoom lens (38~120mm/F4.0~9.0, 10-elements in 8 groups) and a wide selection of modes and features. 

The camera requires a CR123 battery (available as an option). The original box as well as instruction manuals in English, French, and Spanish are included.  

Example photos
Here are a few photos that another person has taken with the PZ800 (note that these were all taken with very expired film, hence the darkness of the images) :


Condition notes
The camera was tested with film and a battery installed (it was not developed however) and it is working correctly. In addition we verified the camera's autofocus by checking the film plane focus on an autocollimator. The camera has some cosmetic wear, most notably the paint on the side is quite worn (see photos). The English and Spanish manuals are in very good condition but the French manual is quite worn with a coffee stain.
