The Hanimex 35 Micro Flash is a 35mm ultra compact with built in flash made by Hanimex. The camera is marked Japan although the company producing it for Hanimex is unknown
It was shown at Photokina 1980 and marketed from 1981. It has a 32mm 1:2.8 4 zone focus lens. Exposure is set manually. In intended use the user sets the camera ISO setting (64, 100 or 400 ISO). This adjust a small window above the lens which will show one of 4 icons (sunny, hazy, cloudy & flash) which is set by moving another lever. The camera is supposed to have 2 shutter speeds (1/180 & 1/60) but the slower is likely triggered in flash mode. A low light warning CdS system encourages the user to turn on the manual flash. Both the flash and low light system are powered by 2xAAA but the camera will work without batteries. The viewfinder is simple with no framelines.
It appears closely related to the Hanimex 35ee Micro
