The Fuji Tiara is a tiny, wide-angle point and shoot from the mid-nineties. It was called the DL Super Mini in Europe but mine came in its original clothes from Japan. Ben Murhaaya wrote a good review of it on here a couple of years ago.
When Hamish suggested this ‘5 frames with…’ feature the Tiara came immediately to mind because I’ve been using it a lot recently at home and when travelling. It really is so brilliantly small and simple!
The main reason to use this camera apart from size and weight is its wide and very nice lens. It’s quite contrasty and very sharp. The camera also seems to meter accurately in most situations. I don’t really use the exposure modes or manual focus options but have seen people online who appreciate them. This is not a tough camera, it has lots of plastic parts and my copy has some dings – I also had to repair the lens door a few months ago after some less than careful handling at a party.
Anyhow, here are five shots from the last year or so from walks around Oxford mixed with two from a trip to Venice earlier in the summer.
