Fujifilm DL-290 Zoom 35mm camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Fujifilm DL-290 Zoom (aka Discovery 290 Zoom) is a 90s point-and-shoot 35mm film camera with a good quality 38-90 mm zoom lens. Like most Fujifilm cameras of the era, it uses a quick and foolproof 'drop-in loading' system for film. 

This camera is powered by a CR123A 3-volt lithium battery (available as an add-on). 

Condition notes
The camera is in very good functional and aesthetic condition. It was tested with a battery and film installed and all functions are working correctly. The film was not developed.
