Traduction de Manuel M

By presenting this camera tight with the splashes (norms IEC 529 level 7) at the time of Kina of 1986, Chinon joined Nikon and its AW-AF on the market of the auto-focus systems which can be wet.
Of course, there were other waterproof compact cameras, but they were fix-focus or with manual focusing.
here, the auto-focus system functions of 1.3 m ad infinitum.

The camera was put on the French market in December 1986, at the approximate price of 1400 francs.

There exists a fix-focus version of this camera, it is called Splash GX/DX. It was presented in November 1987, at the SITI of Paris.
