The flash isn't working on this camera but it's in otherwise good condition. This would be a good budget fixed lens auto-focus point-and-shoot for someone who mostly uses their camera outdoors or in well lit situations, and prefers not to use (sometimes unflattering) flash.

The Pentax PC-303 is a lightweight and simple autofocus 35mm film camera with a 35mm f/4.5 lens (3 elements in 3 groups). It requires 2 AA batteries (not included). 

Condition notes
All functions of the camera were tested with a battery installed and film running. Apart from the flash, everything is working well. The film was not developed. The camera is in very good aesthetic condition (see photos).
