The Minolta Vectis GX-2 is one of the simpler cameras for the APS film system. But it has the advantage to be a little bit splash proof. It has a fixed focus 1:6.4/27mm lens allowing no focusing or zooming, a big optical viewfinder, automatic exposure, a built-in flash, and a self-timer. All three APS formats can only be used without self-timer since the format selector is also the self-timer switch. It needs ISO 200 film and a CR2 3V-battery.

The Vectis GX cameras were a series of splash-proof fancy point-and-shoot cameras for APS film, including the waterproof Minolta Vectis GX-4.
