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?

Glad you recognize it.

The fixed focus ones that come to mind are Kodak disposable cameras and 110 color film cameras.
