The Nikon One Touch 100 is a simple but good quality Japanese-made Nikon automatic point-and-shoot 35mm camera from the early 90s. It features a sharp 35mm f3.5 fixed lens (four elements in three groups). This camera provides a handy 'focus lock' button in the front to help with compositions where your subject is off center.
The One Touch 100 uses either 2 x AA alkaline batteries (not included) or one CR123A (optional).
Condition notes We tested the camera and all features are working correctly. We also verified the camera's film plane focusing on an autocollimator. There is some cosmetic wear on the camera's body (see photos).
