Here is an example of fixed focus compact P&S


Lens: Meniscus lens 72.5mm f/8.8 filter slip-on

Aperture: f/8.8 and f/11;

  • Focusing: fixed focus
  • Shutter: single speed rotary shutter, speed about 1/30
  • Synchronised for Agfa Clibo flash unit, attach buttons on the right of the top plate

Wouldn't call that a compact, that's a MF camera Have it myself, and many other fixed focus film cameras, but almost all compact digital cameras have AF. Maybe some (or most) phonecams have fixed focus lenses?
