The Chinon Genesis III is a well designed and high-quality SLR with a 38-110mm fixed (not interchangeable) zoom lens. It's a very comfortable and easy camera to use in its basic mode but offer a huge number of features if you choose to go deep.
The camera requires a 2CR5 lithium battery (available as an option).
