The Nikon AF230 (aka Fun Touch 5) is a nice simple 35 film point-and-shoot camera featuring an autofocus wide-angle 29mm lens. It features handy flash cancel (for situations when you don't want the flash to go off) and force flash (for fill light or backlight compensation) button as well as a self timer but other than that it's a pure simple point-and-shoot.

This camera requires two AA batteries (not included).

Condition notes
The camera is in good aesthetic condition (see photos) and is fully functional. It was tested with batteries and film installed (the film was not processed however). The original case is included.
