I bought this camera last year because it was very cheap and also because it looked like the ones my parents used to give me when I was a little girl, back in the 80’s! Fuji DL-10 are compact 35mm cameras, sold around 1986 and this particular one was bought in 1987 (the previous owner wrote it on the box).

It is the model which first adopts drop-in loading system, making film loading easy! It has a fixed focus system and a built-in flash, which I wasn’t able to test. For the flash to work, the camera needs a power source of 2 batteries (manganese penlight batteries).
It has a built-on lens cover and the shutter automatically locks when lens cover is closed, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Overall it’s a nice camera, and because it is so simple and small, it’s a good camera for all the Lomographers out there who like to travel light or for the ones who are just starting to get into photography.
