This is a point n' shoot superzoom 35mm film camera with quite a high specification; the top model of Konica's Z-up range.

The lens - shown fully extended on the right - ranges from 38mm to 150mm using the T/W lever exactly where your thumb would expect. The body has a nice champagne and matt black finish, the camera front is metal but the rest of the camera is obviously plastic.
